Get a can of WD 40 and use the supplied straw to squirt directly into the lock. give it a good soak and let it sit, then try and work the key back and forth. try this a few times. if no luck, you can remove the locks and take them to a lock smith to be fixed, which should be substantially cheaper then replacing. good luck!

2005 Nissan Sentra, the keyless entry locks the doors but does not unlock them.


does your unlock button work in car? If it does, do you have another keyless entry key fob? If so does it work? If you just replaced the battery you can try removing battery and cleaning contacts within remote. I know some of the nissan altimas had the same issue and the only solution was a new key fob. Good Luck

12/6/2010 2003 bmw 325xi: Key does not manually lock/unlock driver door...but still works in ignition and trunk...central locking system still works to lock/unlock all doors(including driver) from...


If the key turns in the lock, but does nothing, then the linkage has become disconnected or broken. The key is mechanical to the lock and the lock has a electrical switch to operate the central locking unit. Could be a simple broken clip from the lock barrel. Hope this helps

I need to reset my car alarm on my 02 vw golf. the battery has been replaced so alarm wont unlock doors


stick key in driver door lock and unlock it. If that works, now see if the remote will unlock the door or doors..i remember reading in an owners manual once where you can program which doors open and close by they way you press and hold down the two main buttons, also after a battery change in the remote, i think, but not sure, i did this on a blazar i once owned... the owners manual said, that you had to be within 20 feet and press and hold down both buttons till it makes the arming sound.... Can i get some feedback cause im curious..thanks.

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

When you try to unlock it.... Do you here it making any sound?

I haven't even been in a Echo, So I can't really know how its setup lol but, i can try and help. :)

When you try to unlock it from the inside of the car do you here any sounds? Does it turn Really easy? Maybe the rod unhooked from the lock,

Have you tried a coat hanger? To try and jigge it open ,

You can remove the seat. :) Might be alittle hard but, it will work so you can take the pannle off, If you take this step BE sure to Disconnected you're Battery.

Rear doors and tailgate not unlocking


Remove the fuse panel on the driver side and find the door lock relays remove and replace the relays. Make sure they are seated in the fuse panel. That should fix the problem.
