    Default Gen1 Door Lock Cylinder Seized

    Has anyone had their lock cylinder replaced? Did you do it yourself or get the dealership to do it?

    During the last cold snap/snow storm my lock cylinder seized. Thinking it might be frozen I tried putting lubricants into the lock and heating it up but to no avail. I would normally use my remote to lock/unlock but both of my remotes stopped working within 2 weeks of each other, and yes I put in new batteries.

    I believe I have smart keys too. Is the dealership the only place that can reprogram them?

    you can reprogram it yourself... instructions can be found with the help of google

    dealer of course can reprogram, but that's the most expensive place to do it

    are you sure it's the key cylinder that's seized? it could be the actual lock mechanism too
