One key used to do it all for a 1999 Taurus but now the key will open
the trunk and start the car but will not open the doors.
Doors and trunk open from the remote. Remote will also lock the doors
and set alarm. Any hints or information appreciated.
Check linkage connecting the lock cylinder to the door latch mechanism.
Sometimes when people try to use a "slim jim" they accidentally
disconnect the linkage instead of gaining entry into the vehicle.
If you give us full information we can give you a more accurate answer.
Does the lock cylinder turn with the key?<<<<<<<<<<<
No slim jim ever used and the problem is with both the drivers side door
lock and the passenger side door lock with both set of keys. The key
goes in but it can't be turned.
