Question about GMC Canyon
This usually happens because we use key fabs/remotes but occassionally we do still need to use the locks to prevent the locks from corroding and seizing up. You can spray a graphite lubricant into the lock and working the key into the lock.There is a product called locklube which should be available at your local auto parts vendor.You spray it into the lock lube and work the key in the lock. If this process does not work the lock may need to removed and replaced or rebuilt.

Hello pemca. Your locks need some tender loving care and even more important some penetrating lubricant. Get a can of WD-40 at any auto parts store. Spray some into each of the key holes with the little tube provided with the can. Let it sit for a few minutes and then spray some lube on that pesky key and insert it in the hole. Work the key in and out a few times and wiggle it. IT will eventually turn and it will open your door. Joe
4 thumbs up please. ty.

Hi! The door lock actuators are surely stuck. I strongly suggest that you disconnect the steel rod connecting the actuators and lock so you can lock and unlock it manually till you get a new security system. Before detaching the actuators behind the door trimming I strongly suggest that you spray wd40 to loosen the key hole. This can help too on turning the key smoothly. If still no luck then go to detaching the steel rod on the actuator. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!
