    I had an issue with the anti-theft/keyless entry system. I had installed LED bulbs in the license lights and kick panels which caused my anti-theft/keyless entry to stop working. I reinstalled the factory bulbs and no more issues.

    Okay. Sitting outside, eh? Has it rained/snowed and been cold recently? I ask as we had a rainstorm over here in Jersey a few weeks back and my lock cylinder had froze. Since I don't store my car in the winter, I was able to unlock both doors with my fob to get in through the passenger side and unlock my driver's door manually. Your lock cylinder could be frozen. Try to unlock it again tomorrow or a warm day and see if it unlocks. Keep us posted.

    It was 60 degrees so it was not frozen. Paid $40 to get a guy to come out to unlock the door but I am in. Installed the battery and fired her up. Still going to be another week before snow is no longer forcasted and I can drive it on the road. I will take the door panel off in the next few days and have a peek around to see what is up.

    Wow, who came up with that bright idea?

    The General. I think my Caddie might be the same... one door lock on the entire car.

    I'm sure there must be some kind of reasoning behind that, but, I'm not seeing it

    Yeah, I looked the other day before I left for work. Only key lock cylinder on the CTS is the driver door.

    Yep. I believe Vette as well. I don't know about the CTS, but the GTO also has a manual trunk release behind the passenger rear headrest and a fuel door pull release in the trunk.
