Default Several small problems

I have started having problems with my door locks. I cannot unlock passenger dr. with key. The last couple of nights, I have almost not been able to unlock drivers dr with key. It's like there is something catching or stopping key from turning. I'm going to wd-40 lock today and work it to see if that helps. Have never had to force key to open before. When I was up all night guarding, I would start my truck every few hrs. The idle would be fine, but every little bit it would rise for a bit and then settle back down. Since it has been cold, my cel light will not come on until I drove 5-6 miles and engine has warmed up some. During running in idle though, it will not come on. Seems to me there was one other little thing I had, but it's too early to think that hard. Love my new exhaust. Super 40 Flowmaster's and x-pipe. No cats as I wanted. If I had known this new job was coming, I could have waited a bit and got some high flows from summit, but o' well. At least now I can afford some headers. But I stopped and looked at a used Ultra Classic the other day at Rocket City HD...Hmmmmm I liked.

on that lock use graphite, they sell a small can just for locks, it can be had in either dry powder or liquid
also lube the key before sticking it in; could it be moisture coupled with freezing temps

["looked at a used Ultra Classic"]
is it a twin cam engine ? depending on year they are problematic, mostly due to engine lubrication and not using bearings on some rotating engine parts, they call a bushing a bearing

best bet would be an Evolution engine made after '86, I see them with less than 30,000mi and under $7-$8,000, most have been tricked out by the owner and the EVO engine has no problem reaching the 85,000mi mark with nothing other than prevenative maintence

I believe J it was a 2008 model. Sure was nice. A full dresser is what I've wanted for several years now. Maybe some time this year. I'll go get some lq grafite. The other small problem came to memory. Only when cold, but tranny won't shift into od till after about 3 miles. I leave my house and I'm on a hwy at speed. Just wonder if the cold and possible vacuum leak is the cause. One more thing, since new exhaust, there is a sound coming from the rear of engine and comes through frt of dash. It sounds like radio static or a giant short. I know, sounds crazy, but that is the way I hear it. Thanks J.

I always used Dry Graphite, took the cylinders out of the doors and cleaned them all out and lubed it with the graphite.

That's by design. There's a thermostatic switch that locks out OD till the fluid reaches 95 F.

Ok glc. Just never have noticed it before and of course, we have not had cold like we've had since I bought truck. That noise I was talking about only happens during idle and maybe up to 1200 rpm. Advance didn't have any liquid graphite but they had a little tube with a end to fit in locks. They said it had graphite in it. Before I sprayed though, the door unlocked fine. Just must be frozen moisture at night. Must have a broke rod or its come undone or something on pass dr. It unlocks by pwr but not key. There are several things I want to do on drs but I've been waiting so I could pull dr panel off only once ie: upgrade speakers, replace mirrors, some sound deadening and fix window on pass dr which will not go up properly. I've also noticed some fine scratches on pass dr glass like it has rubbed something going up and down. May replace that too.

Probably rubbing the gasket on the door panel, happens a lot when they get old and start cracking.
