for some reason, my key does not unlock my doors. i had a new oem key made according to my vin, not a copy of my previous piece of shit key. the key won't even turn, it will go in almost all the way, but it will not turn whatsoever. anyone ever had this problem?? if so, what did ya do to fix it??

I have the same prob. My key works fine in the ignition, but won't barely fit in the key hole in the door. I have a viper, so i never really need to use my key in the door. Thx for the tip though, I'll have to try it.

yeah, at one point, the other key worked fine, but it stopped unlocking the door eventually. thats why i had the other one made in the first place. i thought that would fix the problem. but i will definitely try to spray some powdered graphite in there. is it simliar to silicone spray?? sorry, i have never heard of that before.
either way, thanx for the help!
i would agree with John M about it being the key and not the lock. when i bought my car, i had the dealer cut me a new key since the one they wanted to give me was bent. anyways, it took them like 8 tries to get it right. they did cut the key using the vin numbers too. it wasn't as if they used my old key. likely your old key is worn and has worn the lock in certain places. the new key, being exact specs is probably not turning because the key isn't worn in the places it needs to be worn. not sure if that made sense, but hope it helps. i'd get the dealer to keep cutting the key till they get it right.
