Asked by ashtho95 Feb 02, 2015 at 12:40 PM about the 2002 Nissan Sentra

Question type: General

Today, February 2, 2015, I went to go to class to find my door wouldn't open. I thought it
was frozen shut, but upon farther inspection I found that my key will not unlock my door,
but it will unlock my trunk. This has never happened to me before.

Does the key turn in the lock? If the key turns then the linkage inside has come disconnected. If not the lock is probably seized. Try spraying some PB Blaster, WD-40 into the lock and try turning it. BECAREFUL NOT TO BREAK THE KEY.

I think it was just frozen. I live in KC and I wiggled the key back and forth a bit and it unlocked

It's a valet key it'll work ignition but not the glove box or the doors

Nissan Sentra is a crap car so expect the doors not to open the locks not to open the air bag not to work the bumper to fall off the door handle to break etc. Never buy a Nissan Sentra. Piece of junk made of plastic.
