key doesn't work i'm losing my mind
I just purchased a 1999 Tahoe and posted some problems I was having with the front doors remote locks not working. I figured "what the hell" if the key works thats fine. I tried all the locks and the key does not work! I am assuming that the doors have been replaced as well as the hatch. What I would like to know is it possible to have keys made that fit or do I need to replace the whole door lock shootin match?By the way, the remote does slightly move the front latches and it unlocks the rear doors and the hatch??:sign0011:

A locksmith might be able to create a kay based on a vin, but seeing as how it has been replaced, I fear you might be screwed man..-=Howie=-:sarcastic:

If you key doesn't work the doors or the gate most likely the ignition switch was replaced.

You have a point there. Any ideas on the chapest way out? and why does the key fob work on the rear doors and gate but not the front doors?

Buy a lock set and replace all the locks, by the time you have a lock smith rekey everthing it's cheaper to put in a lock set. As far as the door lock actuators you will have to pull the door panel to see if you are getting power to them.
