    Hey guys,
    I recently purchased a VE commodore, and have no issues getting in and out of the vehicle using the buttons on the remote. When, however I go to unlock the door with the physical key, nothing happens. I can turn it clockwise and counterclockwise, however the actual lock on the door does nothing. Does anyone have any tips or tricks? I’ve been googling furiously all afternoon to no avail.

    Cheers

    The lock might be damaged. The lock should freewheel if you use something other than the correct key to unlock it.

    turn key (feels like it will break)while lifting handle, this how you do it if your battery is flat, lock button will only move a fraction, alarm will go off so need to put key in ignition and turn it off
