Doors won't lock

When I use the key fob to lock the doors, they lock, but instantly unlock. Had a Porsche shop look at it, nothing showed on the scanner.

This could be a faulty driver door latch assembly as the internal switch inside is open.

Door locks to side doors will not lock or unlock using either the key fob or door buttons. Back hatch will unlock using key fob


Check the fuse for the door locks first, then if nothing there look for a wiring diagram that shows the ground wire location and verify the ground is made. Also the driver side lock switch button could be the culprit

Key won t unlock doors


lost the other fob>>> ?????
never own a car with 1 fob.
and if one fob messes up, the battery inside is dead. (or worse)
if just lock fails the button is bad, if one fob false, and they do
its just cheezy switch. (can be cleaned)
use the other FOB, if it fails, post.

2003 Monte Carlo SS, FOBS won't unlock doors (new batterries), use key and open the door with the door open FOB will lock and unlock the door, shut the door and the FOB won't lock the doors. After...


If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually


Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed

Door Locking Problem


Hi Bgood,
I had the same problem. I locked and unlocked the car with the engine run several time utilizing the dashboard lock button. That fix my problem.
