Try spraying a lubricant into the cyclinder. if you have keyless entry the key locks do not get used very often. this causes the lock cylinders to seize and then you have to try to work them free. penetrating oil works best, spray it into the keyhole. and try working key in and out slightly tapping the key with hammer. try to free up the tumblers key spraying the oil into the hole and repeat. if after 20 minutes it doesn't free I am sorry to inform you that you will have to replace them :(

Cant turn key in ignition f 2005 Toyota matrix caris in park steering is unlocked


Tim is right about key wearing out. Even the tumblers inside the cylinder can wear out. Cutting a new key will work only if the thickness wear has taken place. But if the profile/notches are worn out then only solution is to change the key lock and cylinder as a set.
If key has a chip in it best would be to go to the Dealer or any Tech
who will provide you with a Chip key and can program it for you.

2009 jeep liberty only drivers door unlocks


you just get this car.
or it worked before but not now? key questions.

door switch driver and RKE not working right.

and some cars the driver has a master switch and local switch.
and some have a kids safe switch that kills the other doors.
i dont have the opr,guides. for liberties.

in this case , this is a programmable feature. most newer jeeps.
you can program most cars. for (only driver door works with fob)
this is for security, (like airport parking , alone, at night)
the operators guide (lost already )covers this. in the glove box.
most folks don't read it ,they just drive to jeep service and
ask to have it set like you want. and pay $100.
it could be a fault too... but that will take checking above first.
on my other car, i must click 2 times to open all doors, (GM)

the dealer will scan the PCM/BCM puters. to see if they are throwing
DTC errors. any good scan tool can do this.
and check fuses first. never last. or get egg in face.

did you read this?
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/jeep-liberty-owners-manuals/

lost it , then get it and put it on a flash stick and put it back in the glove box or burn a CD . (or kill a tree and print it)

Cant unlock lambourgini gallardo at all key fob just stopped working key wont unlock door and buttons dont open either

Take the key apart, replace the battery. The car needs to relearn the key, so stick it in the ignition, turn the car to the "on" setting without starting, press the unlock button on the fob. Thats it!

My wife lost her keys. I had to by another key and program it to the car. Now, she has found her keys and the remote does not work. Does it have to be reprogramed or do I have to get another one? If the...


The old remote can be programmed again but you need to take the remotes to be programmed together. They must be programmed at the same time and I believe you can program up to 4 remotes per vehicle. I think the venture requires a scan tool for reprogramming. Try this first- 1. Sit in the drivers seat and put the key in the ignition in the off position. 2. With your left hand hold down the unlock button on the door panel and turn the key to the on (not the run position) then off, then on and off. 3. If the horn honks, take one remote and hold down the lock and unlock buttons until the doors lock and unlock, then do the same for the second remote. 4. Now, turn the key to the on position, then off position and the horn should sound again. Try unlocking/locking the car with each remote. **step 2 may require the key to be turned on then off 3 times instead of 2 before the horn honks. This my not work but if it fails it will not change any of the current settings but you will need to have the dealer program the remotes together.

The alarm isnt working... car wont start, buttons wont work!


Just a possibility, but a discharged battery could be the culprit. Do the headlights come on brightly? Will the horn blow normally? A 'dead' battery will usually have enough power to illuminate LED warning lights, while not having enough current to operate the starter/door solenoids, etc. Have somebody test the battery voltage to be sure.
