If you can afford a Lexus, you can afford to call a dealer service department and have them bring you out of the dark about their coded keys.

Manually oped door lock on2004 deville from open window now won't srart with out waiting a couple minutes


You triggered the security system on this model, which is notoriously sensitive, and the security shut down the ignition. Don't push your luck, use the key fob to unlock or you may wind up with a locked down and inoperable Cadillac.

My 2000 ford ranger pickup door latches are broken how do I open the doors. Do I have to break a window to get in?


Usually you can pry the window a little bit or pry the top corner of the door out a little.. you need a metal rod.. preferably 1/4" diameter. long enough to reach across cab to catch oposit door handle and open the door. If the truck has electric door locks. you can sometime just reach down with your rod or even a coat hanger and push the unlock button.. another is a "slimjim"tool i'm not sure if it will work on a 2000 model.. what ever you do try not to break anything or tear the seal of the door. I have done this many times for people that have left their keys in car.

1998 dodge durango. used to have an alarm, I dont have a remote. Alarm should be disabled. truck is acting like its alarm is going off. Ignition is locked. wont turn over


close all the doors and lock them. Try unlocking the passenferside door. See if that esets the alarm. If not let one of the windows down lock the doors and with the key left on disconnect the battery than reconnect it. Reach in the car throw the window and get in, Turn the key off than try starting it. Hope this helps. Leave comment.

Security system went off after replacing battery now car wont start nor fuel pump will turn on.how do i fix


You might just need to reset it. Roll the drivers window down and close all the doors. Lock all the doors with the key ) turn the key to lock twice, The electric locks should lock all the doors. wail a few minutes and unlock and open the trunk with the key. relock the truck or just close it. unlock the drivers door with the key, twice. all the doors should unlock, get in and start the car. Now this does'nt always work. If it does'nt we'll make the system think it's running. Close and lock all the doors. open the hood and disconnect the battery, one ccable will be fine. wait a few minutes. Reach in though the open window and turn the key all the way on. Don't open the doors, go around and connect the battery hard so it does'nt jump or skip. Reach thought the window and start the car/ once it's running. turn it off remove the key and unlock the door from the inside and open the door ( as if you were inside.) get in and start the car and everything should be back to normal.

My steering column is locked and I cannot get the key to turn to start the car. I have a 2008 pontiac g5.


The battery dead? Remove the battery cables and wait and then see if the key will turn. If it will not remove the key ( will it come out?) the key can be the wrong one ( maybe) you can have a blown fuse. Any fuse so you need to check them all. If the key will turn with the battery disconnected then put the car in park and turn the key off and remove it from the car. with the window down and the doors all closed and the hod open reconnect the known good ( charged Battery) with the battery connected don't open the door but reach in and put the key in and start the car. the doors should lock when the engine starts. reach in and unlock the door and get in and close the door. then turn the car off and remove the key get out and close the door and lock it with the key. wait a minute and then unlock the door with the key get in and drive away like normal. do everything though or you'll unset the reset cycle. Make shure that the break lights work as they control the unlocking feature of the collum.

Driver door sensor broken


inside the mechanical lock (The part that actualy holds the door shut when you close it) there is a switch that informs the control unit that the locking mechanism is either locked or unlocked. (door open or closed).

These switches fail sometimes, when this happens the control unit is not aware that you have closed the door
If the faulty switch is not informing the control unit that the door is closed, the central locking will not try to lock the door (because it thinks the door is still open).
The switch is integral with the lock unit, and they are not easy things to replace either.
remove the internal door trim. unplugg the wiring inside. remove the outer key barrel and unhook the cable from the outer handle to the lock unit. unbolt the lock unit. the window regulator will have to be unbolted from the window (remove the 2 plastic circular access panels and wind the window down to a level at which the 2 bolts are visible), lift the window clear once unbolted (using your hands, slide it upwards in its guide rails, stick it in place with tape).
once this is done the window regualtor can be unbolted (10 or so bolts) and removed, complete with the door lock.

1994 S10 Broken key in pass. side lock-Easist way to


You could try using two needles and see if you can slide them in above the and or below the broken key and apply some leverage to see if you can pop it out or try a powerful magnet. If need be, you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door, The lock will be held down by a bolt that you can reach relatively easily. The unscrew the bolt and the cylinder will slide it... it may fall down into the door though, but you can still get to it
