Door Lock on a '79 CorvetteI had this same problem on my '79. I found that it was the latch not getting out of the way so that the lock can move. I know this sounds strange, but sometimes the latch gets stuck part way through its motion and this will not let the locking device move.

Cure: I sprayed lots of ether (or degreaser or carburetor cleaner), using that little red tube, into the latch unit. This rinses off the old sticky dirty dried out lube. Then I sprayed in a little lube like WD40. Next "flick" the outside handle a few times. Next use the key to move the lock back and forth. It took a couple of tries but the door works fine now.

same m8 mine waz da same n i did wot u did n it work ed trust him

You disarm the system by unlocking the door. The controller picks up a ground from a device mounted on the end of the lock cylinder.

Usually with a key from the outside or thumbolt from the inside.
