Some times it takes longer then 10 min for the light to stop blinking and go out, so give it at least 15 min.

Drivers side door won't unlock but passenger side does with key
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Defroster still on
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 1 year ago.

You have to unlock the drivers door to turn off the alarm, so the anti theft system can be reset. Can you wiggle the key in the lock t get t to unlock?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can lock door with key but not unlock I'll try again
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 1 year ago.

Did you have any luck unlocking the door?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. At some point the original owner got locked out of their car and had someone jimmy it open. Now you cannot unlock the driver door at all -- with key or without. You have to unlock passenger door and reach over and manually unlock it.
Instructions you gave have not worked, probably because of that issue. Towed it to my mechanic and he is having a hell of a time with it as well. Going to try and remove the brain and put in a new one to see if that will work. Unless you have a better idea.
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 1 year ago.

Don't replace the computer. That will not solve your problem. Have him fix the door lock so the door will lock and unlock with the key. That will be much less expensive on you and it will solve your problem I believe. Unless you can try and get a remote key fob to be able to arm and disarm the alarm system.
