I just purchased a 2001 Jetta and I have an issue with the key/lock mechanism. The key seems to work as it should, turn it to the right and it locks the car. Turn it to the left and it unlocks, however I cannot open the car by pulling the handle from the outside. If I lower the windows (with the key) I can open the car from the inside. Once it is open from the inside, I can pull the outside handle and it opens fine, but once you lock it, same thing happens.

Most of the time the power door locks on my 1995 993 Porsche do not automatically unlock when a door is opened from the inside. They will occasionally unlock after several seconds delay. As a result, the doors can be opened to exit the car without the doors actually being unlocked. I accidentally locked my keys inside the car when buying gas and had to call AAA to open the door. The console switch and the key will lock/unlock the doors.

My Audi A6 auto-locks itself while running with the keys inside. This happens repeatedly when I use the 'Start' button to start (i.e. proximity key) and then step out to brush off snow, move something in driveway, etc and then, CLICK, the car lock me out with my keys, phone, everything inside. I have had to wait 45 minutes in freezing weather for an emergency locking service.

My key will not open the doors or start the engine (it won't even turn in the ignition switch). Initially, I thought it was the battery for the key, but I changed that without success. The light on the dash comes on when I open the the door but other than that, the pedals (gas and brake) are locked. The headlights and the over headlights inside the car come on. I sat in the car and hit the lock button on the key 2x , put in the ignition took it out hit it again, hoping it would reprogram the key

My Honda CR-V EX 2005 doors lock by themselves. Occasionally, after you unlock it with the remote key, it locks itself before you can get in. It also happens sometimes when I unlock the car, then open the back door to load groceries, the rest rest of the doors lock while the back one is still open and when you close the back that one is locked then too.I am afraid someday the keys will get locked inside. Help!

I locked my door but i left the window open. So I reached into the window and unlocked the doors from the inside. My car alarm went off so then I used the keys to lock and unlock the doors from the outside.

I have a 2008 BMW 328 xi. Currently the all the doors are locked and the only door that will unlock is the drivers side by using the key. The central locking button does not open all of the other doors once I get in the car (this includes the gas door). I can lock the drivers door from the inside using the fob, and the drivers door will open from the inside handle, however none of the other 3 doors will unlock.

My 1998 Nissan Maxima GXE had the lock on the trunk changed before I bought the car about a week ago. I don't have the key to the trunk, so I've been opening it with the button inside the driver door. About half the time, the anti-theft alarm will start going off about half an hour after I lock and leave the car. I'm curious about why the car doesn't do this every time, is there anything I might be able to do to assure that the alarm doesn't go off (like lock the car in a certain way), otherwise

I cannot open the trunk on my Sentra.The remote doesn't do it nor does the switch inside. I only have a valet key so I can't open it from the trunk lock itself. The back seat fold down release latch is INSIDE the trunk. Is there still a way to remove the backseat back rest in order to get access to the trunk from inside the car? I believe the switch inside the trunk got moved to the "cancel" mode by accident which is why it will not open.
