There is a Service Bulletin 03-068 on this issue. The lock cylinder needs to be replaced. If the car is under 5 years old, it may not cost you anything, but those of us with '03 cars are out of luck. The TSB has detailed instructions and the cylinder lists for $29 ($36 at my local dealer : ( . The local dealer wants $200 for the labor, 0.8 hrs.

Try some wd-40 in the lock assembly and a little on the key.

Opening the drivers door doesnt automatically open the passangers door


Some vehicle locking systems allow a single button press to unlock the driver's side door and require a second button press to unlock the passenger side door. Likewise, use of the key to unlock the driver's side door does not automatically unlock the passenger side.

Alarm won't turn off


the valet key doesnt have a transponder chip in it, so it will allow physical turning of keyways and operations, but will not disable the alarm and often wont disable the immobilizer.

sorry to say i think you will need to get an autolocksmith , or main dealer to get you a functioning key with transponder chip mapped to your cars rfid system that will allow alarm to be enabled /disabled

This is usually caused by broken plastic parts in the lock system. The best would be to verify and lub all locks and check out the elecrical.

Manual door locks won't unlock


I recommend pulling the door panel off and getting a better look. There are little nylon retainers that slip over the metal rods in the door which connect the door handles, locks, latches etc (usually on the ends of the rods). Quick guess is that the end of the rod is sliding in there but because its still clipped onto the rod, it appears to be all there, in its proper place and working correctly. I'm also guessing that there has been a lot of penetrating oil sprayed into the door in an attempt to free the tight lock mechanisms. In reality, allowing the broken parts to slide into a stuck position more easily. Pop the door pnl off, start wiggling and moving different parts of the lock, latch, handles etc... You may want to ask your wife to help turn the door lock key outside while you're watching things move inside. I'll bet the issue(s) become very clear in no time! Good luck!

This is a dumb question...I just got my Larado a month or so ago.It came with one key,that locks / unlockes diffret doors depending what way you put it in the door (if it don't unlock the doors ya wan


If the key works in all of the locks, it is the Master key. I think GM is the only manufacturer still using a different key for ignition.
In the mid-90's, remote locks were still an option, not a standard feature. Perhaps the easiest way to check whether your vehicle has that option is to ask a dealer to look it up using the VIN, unless you find a remote lock receiver in the vehicle (sorry, I don't know where it is normally installed). If you have a remote lock system, you can use the VIN to order a replacement, but it won't be cheap.
Alternatively, you can have an aftermarket remote lock system installed. Many of these include remote start as well - this is nice for getting the vehicle pre-warmed on cold winter mornings.

About 6 months ago someone tried to break into my driver side door. Ever since, you couldn't unlock the door from the outside with a key. The door would open and close just fine though. About a week ago,...


That sounds like what happened to my neighbor.They came to the conclusion that someone tried to jam a screwdriver in the lock to open the door.As far as not openeing anymore,that happened to me and I had to replace the mechanism inside the door.I bought a used one for $5 and did it myself.A regular mechanic should be able to fix it however,you may end up needing to have 2 separate keys for your car if they replace the lock.1 for the ignition and other locks,and 1 for the drivers side lock.Call around a few places for a few estimates.Tell them the same as what you posted,they should be able to give a close estimate over the phone.Also,please read my tip about car keys.It is good free info.Good luck!
