Door Locks Don't Lock

Hi all, the drivers side door lock no longer activates with the key from the outside with the door closed. Began a month or two ago. Then the passenger side door lock is acting funny, sometimes it'll lock with the key, sometimes not. Both will unlock with the key, neither will lock from the outside with the key.

Rear door works fine. Is this a worn out door lock tumbler assembly issue or some weird needs to be cleaned or reset issue?...

did you try wd-40 in the key hole? May clean out any debris. I would try that before you start taking the whole lock assembly apart.

Well I wouldn't recommend WD40 or any liquid in a keyed assembly. Graphite puffer bottles are the best for lubing keyed locks and such since the dry powdered graphite won't attract grit and such. Will try it, but likely will buy new barrels.
