Hello' This could be caused by one of two problems, a. Could be the kek is worn down/out, will this key work in the trunk, iI mean will it unlock the trunk? If so then possibly the lock cylinder has come apart or is worn out or it may have come from another door/car. I hope this will help you.

MY SCION XA PASSENGER DOOR WONT UNLOCK WITH KEY,ONLY THE DRIVERSIDE


try using a little graphite in the keyhole. If key turns and does nothing, may have a bad lock mechanism or a rod had fallen off inside. See that the lock turns freely. Don't force. Door will unlock from inside and still have a bad lock mechanism.

Driver door wont open


You probably either have a piece of linkage that has come loose inside the door or the latch mechanism is stuck halfway between "lock" and "unlock" (fairly common on some vehicles). You will need to remove the driver's seat to make room to work so the driver's door panel can be removed if you cannot open the door from either the inside or the outside.

If you can get the door open, then the door panel should be removed to inspect the linkage and latch mechanism.

All of a sudden all three keyholes didn't work. When you try to turn the key, it doesn't turn so you can't unlock the car. Its the same problem for all three keyholes including the trunk. I...


Hello
If the keyholes were not used for some time - then the grease in there could turn into stiff mass. Try put some wd40 in the keyholes and try to turn around with a key - watch out so that the key wouldn't break and stay inside the hole. Good luck

2000 BMW 323I WONT UNLOCK WITH THE KEY OR KEY FOB, ANY IDEAS?


I had same problem. Driver door would lock/unlock with key in keyhole in door, but not with fob, and other doors would not lock/unlock. Even once inside none of the doors would lock/unlock with lock switch, or even by pulling handles. Mechanic (very trustworthy) explained I needed a new control module (cost me $600). Good Luck. $600 is better than having to roll down the windows so Grandma can Luke Duke it outta the car.

I have no keyless entry and the ignition wont turn with the key in it, also when i manually unlocked the door the alarm went off and would not stop


We had a 1995 jeep with no keyless entry also. To avoid the ALARM going off, we had to insert key into the rear door/ hatchback door keyhole and turn... Alarm would go right off. good luck.
