    if the internal switch isnt working the door lock either then its not the software but more like a connection problem with wires to the door lock in the door either they are damaged in the rubber trunking from the door pilar to the door or something is wrong inside the door ,you would need to remove the door panel to investigate

It actually sounds like the micro switch in the drivers door that reads the key fob is bad, if the key works and the fob works on the other doors and the trunk. You will most likely need to have the door handle replaced, they're not very expensive by themselves but it can be a lot of work.

My bmw x5 door handle will not open even the door is unlocked,i can't get to the other door because they are locked.


How did you get the driver's door unlocked. Your other doors should unlock by hitting your key fob button twice. Sounds like the door handle came disconnected or broken.

My 2006 cadillac sts key fob all of a sudden is not working it says no fob detected and i have the fob what can b wrong??


Some late model fobs contain electronics beyond the push buttons.
Batteries are replaceable...small screws may let you do this.
If the battery is not the cause....a replacement fob may be expensive. A road service technician can probably troubleshoot and replace cheaper than dealer !

But a used 2006 solara but key fob does not remotely open trunk. Any suggestions?


Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.

Mu rear liftgate will not lock with the fob or the key. All other doors work fine.


is it possible there is a "lockout button " or switch that has been activated-either in the glove box, on the floor next to drivers seat(near door opening) or even inside the center console where u would rest your elbow?? THIS BUTTON/SWITCH would prevent key/fob from unlocking liftgate. ALSO CHECK to make sure that ther is nothing caught(fabric/clothes) near the LATCH WHERE LIFTGATE ENGAGES. this can definitely cause a problem!
