Take the lock out and have a look ,if it appears ok thenm you have the wrong key ,someone has changed the lock for whatever ,if so remove the clip retainer off the end and remove the barrel ,the you will see the that with the key tumblers are not retracting into the barrel ,now sometimes you can swop a few around but you always end up with one or two not right so i grind them down then the key will work ,refit the retainer/clip refit the lock and away you go all locks work with the same key .

MM theft system has been activated on my 98 Pontiac Sunfire and now my car won't start. I've checked my trunk for a button and I've removed the alarm fuse and still my car won't start.


I have a 97 Malibu and when the theft system light kept coming on and would only start after letting the car sit for 10 minutes we ended up replacing the complete ignition where the key goes in. Then it was fine. It wasn't cheap either. Sorry, good luck.

1997 bmw convertable trunk will not open


I vaguely recall reading something in the owners manual of my '97 328 regarding the trunk and the master key. Something about locking things with the master key so that valets cannot open your trunk with the valet key.
Try unlocking the driver door or the trunk with the master key (the original key that had the LED flashlight in it.

My subaru legacy's truck doo would not open. Appreciate your help


Check for a rusty handle. If you push the handle forward then try the power unlock then open the door with handle. I have been finding that the handle becomes rusty and does not return all the way when released. Therefore not allowing the locks to disengage. Hope this helps.
