The lock mechanism is messed up, get some graphite powder from the parts store and spray some of it in the keyhole and then put some on the key and put it in the lock and work it around and see if it frees up and if it doesn't you might have to replace all the locks on your car unless they can get you a new one that matches yours.

    First time I've heard someone mention "graphic power" for locks, the real pros use that. Good answer.

Just rock the key a little while you're turning it.

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.

The lock actuator is broken. Seems as if it went out in the unlock position. So you cant lock it. Replace the actuator and you will be able to lock it again.

this is due to a bad switch in the drivers door, when you use the key to unlock the door it should shut down alarm, also the alarm module may be going bad, the alarm is setting itself on, when ever you lock the door the alarm turns on, you will need to replace the switch on the drivers door or unlock the passenger side door that also has a switch that disarms it, the switch is on the lock itself, thats the problem you are having , good day,

Car doors wont lock with remote


Sounds like the rod that goes from the lock to the key came off. There is usually a little plastic clip that holds it together and they break and you get what you are experiencing. You have to take the inside panel off of the door to get inside it.

Hi, Somehow the boot of the car has locked


All locking and unlocking is done through the switch on the drivers door lock. Put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock several times. See if the boot opens then.
Or make sure you haven't hit the lockout button on the drivers door that stops anyone else from opening their doors. (Including the boot.)
