Hello, Just bought a 1989 Corvette coupe and love it.
Went to store, bought groceries came home and parked. Got out and hit the lock the doors slide lever. came back later and used key, it turns but won't open door.
anyone know best way to release the lock or open the door? Neither driver nor passenger side lock work with the key.

I see in another thread you were able to get it open.

Thank you Torch,
Will send photos after I clean her up, needs engine bay cleaning and detail.
BTW, I got the door open by using a long thin rod with a hook on it and a wedge.
I'd be on the phone with the person you just bought the car from to get a working key.

Good luck.

Thanks KENNYGS,
I need to fix those key locks, they now seem to work intermittently.
youtubers recommend a small Pump-up air bladder, plastic wedge and thin, stiff
rod with small hook or bend at the end to push the small electronic Lock/unlock button in front of
the door pull. Note: simply hooking and pulling the pull handle will not open the door while In locked position!
