Nothing about reprogramming the fob. I'm more concerned about the lock not turning. I went ahead and sprayed some lock de-icer and pb blaster in there just in case, but it didn't work. Could it be a dead battery and the lock cylinder is electronic?
Could it be a dead battery and the lock cylinder is electronic?
Yes to both. If the battery is dead or has been disconnected, you still can't unlock the doors even with the key. You should be able to unlock the trunk with the key but that won't help you gain entry to the car unless you have the rear seat folded down. Otherwise your only choice will be to call an approved locksmith to break into the car using "specialist tools".
Might want to leave the back seat down so you can get in through the trunk next time.

Nope. The other car I have is an old grand am. Completely different key style. I'm sure this car is cursed so I'm chalking it up to bad luck. It goes to the dealership Monday to have the lock actuator and electrical system checked.
