assuming the 2005 model year stil uses viper security systems...the chip in the key carries a magnetic resistance frequency. if the chip is damaged or corroded the frequency will change and wont engage the igntion. you can either get another key made (about 75 dollars) or bypass the ignition lockout feature.
the only thing i could think of would be the child safety feature but that is usually only for the rear doors. i think she just panicked because the front doors are set up so that if you pull the door lever the lock pops up.
The Automatic Door Locks can be enabled or disabled by
performing the following procedure:
1. Close all doors and place the key in the ignition
2. Cycle the ignition switch ON/OFF four times ending
in the OFF position. (do not start the engine)
3. Within 10 seconds of the final cycle, press the interior
driver’s door lock switch to the LOCK position.
4. A single chime will sound to signify that you have
successfully completed the programming.
You can turn the feature back on by repeating the above
mentioned procedure or by performing the procedure in
the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), Customer
Programmable Features section on vehicles so
I just fixed my 2005 Aveo door lock. like so many it fell in to the inside and was hitting the window rod and locking. The fix was not to bad, I removed the 3 screws on the bottom door panel, one in the center of door pull and the one behind the arm pull. Then the door panel can be pulled out and up to unhook it from the window seam. I did not un hook the linkage from the door handel, I just slid panel down and let it hang to the side. Then peel the water film back so you can reach in and get the key lock back in to the hole. I found that my lock had rotated down and needed to be rotated back so the screw arm lines back up with the screw hole. I found a replacement screw in my screw tin that worked, tested it and it worked fine. Just revers the door panel removal proceduer making shur that the two hooks on back of the door handel cup is hooked into the two slots on door frame ot it will stick out and you will not be able to put the one screw in, dun deal.
i don't think you can eliminate your problem, the door lock feature is being run by a single module and all doors are connected to it in parallel
so i you want that only the driver's side door would unlock as you put it in park, then you would isolate the rest of the doors to the module but will in turn not controll the rest for locking puposes.
you can not have both features. either control one door or controll all doors.
For killerbee6 - Lets try the simplist possible thing first. Is the window lock (child safety feature) button pressed in? Its located there on the drivers door with all the other windows switches. If it is, then all windows will be locked in their current location. Also the back doors have their own (child safety feature) manual switch located on the end of the door that opens out (which override the manual "pullup lever" inside, to unlock door)
Second possibility is that the modular connector in the drivers door has seperated from its other half.
=====[ ]========= when it should be ==================
For bbmason - sounds like your vehicle was broken into and the theft (which didn't get the truck) may have popped off a switch that is attached to the back side of the key cylinder. That switch tells the Security system a key was used to unlock door, and since its not attached to the cylinder anymore it can't return to it normal 'home/nuetral' state, so when you arm the security it disarms 5 seconds later.
