Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

If the keys just spin in there locks then the connecting rod on the back has a damaged plastic connecting clip , the door panel will have to be removed and checked to see if the clip has just come un-clipped or broken off .
Due to this the fob will not open the doors .

Check this then get back to me for further assistance if needed.

Need further assistance then please get back to me with the reply box and not the poor or bad service button .

Put the key in the lock and turn the key and see why it just spins
as there is your problem , the back part may be damaged or the clip has failed .
