My parents have 2 keys but only 1 car. Neither key works. I have inserted key and tried to unlock the old way but nothing happens.
Jiggle key around while trying to unlock door, flip the key over and try it again... Spray some WD-40 with the little red straw attached - push straw into the key slot and spray - try to unlock .. Will key work in any of the other locks - if equipped?
The alarm didn't work so we tried manually to turn it back and forth but nothing. We thought maybe manually would work but locked out. Only one door you can use key in which is drivers door.
