1997 850 volvo, when i manually open door with key, the car won't start and lights now only use the remote, Now remote won't work - had new battery in remote- suggestions on how to lock doors?

Try this trick, push the lock button once your in the car to unlock first then lock then unlock again, your kill switch is activated as anyone could unlock the door with a key, but to be linked together via bluetooth remote is exclusive and good practice if you choose to stop a thief

How do I lock the passenger side door of a 1999 Porsche Boxter? I never had a remote only an actual key that fits into the driver side lock but there is no lock barrel on the passenger side. Thank you for...

First read the owner's manual. If you don't have an owner's manual for your car, get one off eBay. You'll be surprised what you can learn about your Porsche from the owner's manual. Then, look for a button on the dash that locks/unlocks the doors. Or look for a button near the door handle that locks/unlocks the door. It may be near your window switch and look like a second switch. Lastly, see if there's a slide that locks/unlocks the door.

My 1999 porsche boxter got wet inside. Now the lock on the driver side does not work. That means the front latch and trunk latch do not work. What can I do?

Have you tried locking/unlocking door with the key not the remote
If central locking is working ok this will release front/rear levers
You still need to get to the cause of the problem
If you have a local mechanic [dealer would cost a fortune] go to
In list click on manuals,here you can download full/part work shop manual
good luck barry

4. Shut door
5 Open door
6. Using the lock/unlock button on the direvers door, slowly press and unlock 5 times (count the lock 5 times and the unlock 5 times)
7. With the door open insert you key into the ignition, turn to ON position (don't start), wait 5 seconds. Trun off and remove key.
8. Locks should cycle once (Car will lock and unlock once). If they don't cycle or they cycle more that once, do stips 1-7 over.
9. Using the remote, push lock button, hold for 1 second, release. The locks should cycle once. If not start over and go slower.

1997 Maxima : keyless entry will not lock or unlock doors. will lock manually, and will lock by turning the key. hazards do not flash, and the security indicator light does not go solid

Replace the battery in the remote. I have a feeling that it needs to be replaced, after replacing the battery, hold the lock and unlock buttons down for about 7-30 seconds for the remote to understand that it needs to pair with the car. The locks should lock, unlock then lock again.
