Question about 2005 Chevrolet Colorado

My key does not unlock the door. It works in the ignition but not the door. WHy? What do I do? The dealership said it could either be the actuator or the cylinder. Without having to take it to the deal, how do I figure out what the problem is and then fix it?

I have lost my smart remote key for my Mazda CX-9 2011. Can I program a new one myself?


You may need 2 keys to do this, possibly just one. My source does not specify if 1 key will work but here is the procedure i found
With two programmed advanced keys
  1. Bring the programmed advanced keys (2) and a unprogrammed advanced key into the vehicle.
  2. Close all doors.
  3. Insert the supplementary key into the ignition key cylinder. NOTE:
  • Complete the procedures up to Step 7 within 30 s after the supplementary key is inserted.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. Press the UNLOCK button on advanced key 1.
  3. Press the UNLOCK button on advanced key 2.
  4. From the ignition switch in the ON position, switch the ignition switch in the order indicated below.
  • ACC->ON->ACC->ON->ACC->ON
  1. Open the driver-side front door, press the door switch twice , and then close the door. NOTE:
  • After Step 3 is completed and the advanced key programming mode is activated, the door lock actuator operates to lock, and then operates to unlock.
  • If the door lock actuator does not operate, repeat the procedure from Step 2.
  1. Press the UNLOCK button on the unprogrammed advanced key twice . NOTE:
  • After Step 8 is completed and the advanced key is programmed, the door lock actuator operates to lock, and then operates to unlock.
  1. If programming more advanced keys, remove the supplementary key once, and then repeat the procedure from Step 2.

you are doing it right the key should be in ignition at position 2 for about 5 seconds no more than 10 removed hold unlock slowly press unlock 3 times if a door lock actuator or even the fuel door lock actuator is malfunctioning it will not work check these with driver door lock cylinder (fuel door lock does not function with central locking button) all doors should be in same locking position to perform this proceedure first try locked then unlocked hope ive been a help

I am unable to unlock my doors from the key hole, however every now and then the trunk will unlock the doors. how can i get the door unlocked? The trunck does not unlock every tiime and sometimes it locks...


Your locks are out of sync. Lock all doors from Drivers side. Then go around to passenger side unlock, lock and relic. Should be able to unlock doors from drivers side as normal. If not, then one of your actuators are bad.

Power locks are unlocking but not locking only the driver side locks and unlocks


the rubber pads on the door lock actuating lever are worn or the actuators are weak. They would need to be tested and looked at to determine this problem

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

Same problem here


One of the door 'LOCK/UNLOCK' actuators is losing it's 'GROUND' connection/'circuit. This happens when the key is in the ignition and the ETACS (Electronic Time Alarm & Control System) is looking for the appropiate signal(s) to LOCK/UNLOCK the doors. The best solution: Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Z4 Central Locking problem - drivers door.


looks like you will need a drivers door lock actuator (contains the latch)if the door will not unlock with the remote either.the lock cylinder usually will fail since you had to use it everytime to unlock the door. the lock cylinder is vin specific so expect a delay when its ordered from the dealership.i would probably expect around $800 for the complete repair, kinda pricey but the dealership will go out of its way to retain a customer.
