Key won't manually unlock door but starts jeep
I recently purchased a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee (finally had to retire the 97 Grand Cherokee). However, I was given 1 key for it. The buttons on the key work to lock/unlock and the key starts the Jeep BUT when I manually put the key in the door to unlock, it doesn't turn the lock.
There isn't another lock on the Jeep so I am limited on troubleshooting this. Either the lock in the door is bad or the key is bad. I have a hard time believing the key is bad though because it starts the Jeep without a problem.
Any thoughts on how I should proceed?
