I try to get in my truck this morning.The remote isn't working and when I try the key it won't turn to unlock.So where do I go from here.
What he said, rubbing alchohol, PB Blaster, WD 40, coat it good.but the battery shouldnt have an effect on the lock WITH a key....with the fob yes, key...weird.
it may just be frozen. it may be 45 now but over night guaranteed it was below 32. get some rubbing alcohol and squirt it in there.
i have the same problem with mine, had jiggle it around and pretty much force it to turnI am useing the right key, the drivers door is the only door with a key cylinder, and with the key inserted it won't move at all.I have had to used the key before and had no problems.I am thinking that a interior light got left and has run the battery down.
Don't use brake cleaner, it will strip your paint (unless you can guarantee yourself that you won't drip a drop).if its dirty, try some brake cleaner spry. stuff drys pretty quick, then a shot of wd40
