The door key should lock/unlock your t-tops... Those aren't the original tops to your car though -- the previous owner must have bought them as replacements, and for whatever reason didn't pass the key along.

(So in your case/situation, the answer is Yes, there's a third key ;-> )

It is possible to have locksmiths or dealerships cut you new door keys, but you'll need the VIN from the original car (probably not gonna happen.) I were you, I'd consult a reputable locksmith and have them just drill the locks out for you. The reason I suggest this, is that if the T-top locks are built anything like the door locks, it's possible to drill it in a fashion that doesn't totally obliterate the mechanism (it just breaks it enough so that you can use any other key (or screwdriver, etc) to work the lock :)

I cant unlock my car with the remote or the key


The ignition key does NOT open the door lock on my 2004 Buick Century, but the Valet key does. I just thought that was how it was supposed to work.

I can't lock the car using the remote key. the light flashes on the key but does not lock the doors


try reprograming the remote, if that doesn't work u may need a new remote these are the factory instructions.
1. Switch ignition on with a key (don’t start the engine!); leave key in the ignition.
2. Mechanically lock vehicle at left front door, using second key.
3. On remote unit, press "Open" button once. A short horn signal will sound.
he "Open" button is pressed once for programming the first, or a single,
remote unit.
�� When programming additional remote units for the second, third or fourth
memory addresses, press the "Open" button two, three or four times, in
one-second intervals.
�� Example: press the "Open" button once, wait 1 second, then press once
again to program the second remote unit.
�� After 6 seconds, press "Open" button once to activate the coding ocess.

4. The remote unit will now be coded, and it can be used to unlock the central
locking system. Switch ignition off.

The key must be removed from the ignition before the remote unit can be used to lock
the vehicle.The coding process can be repeated up to 4 times for additional remote units.
In between each remote unit coding, the ignition must be switched off.

Before you spend bigger amount, check the battery in the key. Usually a CR2032 battery can be find there. (Open the Keyfob by inserting an object into the key ring holder and pulling the top and bottom apart, Seperate the two halfs, Open the top half to expose the battery... )
