My car key will not lock the car
If the cylinder turns, it is a plastic clip inside the door that holds the linkage that has broke. Dealers don't sell them and it is hit and miss at parts stores. If the cylinder doesn't turn, replace it.

Why doesn't it start?
I ran into this once when I changed a 2000 engine with a 2001 engine. The crankshaft gear for the timing belt was different. One had 2 ears for the crank angle sensor and one had 4. To check if this is the problem, pull all 4 sparkplugs, hook them to your plug wires, turn the engine over and see if you only have spark to 2 cylinders. If that's what you find then you will need to replace the crankshaft timing belt gear.
If that's not it, and you have spark to all 4 cyls., check your fuses. It could be a fuel pump fuse or ECM or an number of other fuses.

Left passenger window down in rain and now it wont go up. 2004 Subaru Forester
Same thing happened to 2002 Suburban and it turned out to be the cables which are connected the window regulator (motor), assuming you have power windows. You will need to remove the panel on the passenger side door to determine the cause. It could be one of three things, the cables, the regulator, or a broken fuse or wire stopping the electrical current...this is pretty rare especially if this is the only window which is not operating.
