Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

If the key does not turn in the door lock or trunk, either those lock cylinders are seized from not being used, or the ignition has been replaced which new keys come with the ignition and the keys for the door and trunk were discarded.

If you give me your vin number I can give you your key code so you can go to a Locksmith to have a key made to see if it works in the drivers door or trunk. If you have the same results, then you know the issue is those lock cylinders. If it does open the trunk and lock and unlock the door, then you know you have a different key for those items.

Let me get your vin so I can get you your key code

The key those turn in the door but, it want unlock and pertaining to the trunk their is not a key entry. The trunk will not open when you use the button from inside the car. Also as I stated the key will not unlock the glove the compartment. Is it a possibility that it could be the alarm system that may have cause the anti theft system to malfunction.

If the key turns in the drivers door, try using WD-40 in the lock cylinder and try working the key back and forth and see if you can get it to turn both directions.

When you insert the key into the glove box, the key normally does not go in all the way. Did you try inserting the the key and turning it ?

Does the glove box open ? ( No it's not part of the security system )

no, I'm not paying another $18 dollars for a phone conversation. I'm not satisfied with the response that I'm receiving. So, as previously stated if your not satisfied you would not charge me for this.
