Ok. Is the key turning at all in the door lock cylinder or is it seized?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The door key turns, but roughly.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Ok I recommend we try spraying some WD 40 into the lock cylinder and see if we can free it up. If you do not have a remote and the key will not turn in the door lock cylinder then there will be no other way to get in the vehicle. Let me know.
