2000 Lincoln Continental: Inability to use the key to open locked driver's door.

Asked by GuruPQLMP Jan 23, 2020 at 10:57 AM about the 2000 Lincoln Continental

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got a 2000 Lincoln Continental.  However, none of the three keys will
open the driver's side door when it is locked.  Is there a way to fix this?  The
keyless entry code system is not working either.  The key fobs work to open
the locked car but I would like to be able to use key to gain entry if and when
thta becomes necessary.  Thoughts?

1 Answer

Mechanic advised me that previous owner's lack of using the key might be the problem and suggested spraying WD-40 or other lubricant into keyhole and try key repeatedly. After two or three applications of WD-40 and attempts to use the key, two days later the key started working and has been fine ever since.
