Keyless entry for my '93?
I guess even the door locks wear out after 20 years or so. Seems like a common problem. So should I install an aftermarket system to fix my drivers door that I can't get the key to unlock from the outside? Yes I have used lots of oil and cleaning the lock. I have been looking on Ebay and wondered if anyone else has done this conversion. These are only $30.00. Any ideas???

I had the same problem with my rear lift gate lock. Ended up removing the lock and found one tumbler had to be physically worked to loosen up! Could you switch the lock from the passenger side? These locks are fairly robust and can be worked. I would use the remote actuators as a last resort. Just my two cents, Steven.

i installed a remote start system that had keyless entry feature on my 93. I think sticking a key in a hole is slow anyways.... lol... i like just pushing a button.. i say get a remote keyless entry system and install an actuator in the door..... step into the 20th century... lol....

The key-less entry is a success. I installed a key-less entry system from ebay to fix the drives door lock that wouldn't unlock from the outside. You can see what I did on my BLOG.
