I recently acquired an 05 doublecab and the keyfob works just fine for locking and unlocking the truck and so do the interior buttons and locks but the key will rarely unlock the door and has never worked to lock the doors? I tried buying some tri flow lubricant but that made no difference.

Anybody have a similar experience? I'm pretty sure the key is original to the truck, works in ignition and glovebox.

My next plan of attack is to disassemble the entire lock/handle to diagnose it

Re: Keys not locking doors

Try getting a locksmith to duplicate the key first. I was having a similar problem where certain locks would be finicky and my tailgate lock stopped working altogether. I was getting ready to start replacing locks when I noticed my key was pretty worn (Original, 2001). Brought it to a local locksmith, he kinda shimmed up the worn spots and made a duplicate. Sure enough all my locks work great again. Grand total: $4.00.

Re: Keys not locking doors

Interesting, I suppose I could try that. I have tried the spare key I have that is in a lot better shape and its still the same thing. When you tryr and turn the key to lock the door it just doesn't turn. All the keys Work great everywhere except the two doors.

Re-key those doors in which keys are not working by hiring nearby locksmith.

Re: Keys not locking doors

If those two door locks are not working then why don't you replace then by hiring a locksmith.

Red face Re: Keys not locking doors

After a long day at work, the last thing you want is to come home, put your key in the lock, and find that it won’t turn. A key that doesn’t turn in the lock could have several causes. You may be able to take care of the problem yourself, or you may need to call a locksmith for help.

Re: Keys not locking doors


I suppose I could try a locksmith. I'll look into that, I'd like to retain the stock keys to be used everywhere else whatever I do. If I ever find the time I will take the locks out and inspect, maybe just needs to grease or similar.
