SOURCE: My DVD drive does not open

I suggest you may have accidently put another disk in your DVD drive on top of the one used previously without removing it first: I know, I did just that, and the teeth may now be sheared on the drive wheels which means it will probably need replacing with a new one.
To open manually, look for the tiny hole beside the Open/close button just under the drawer and insert a long slim steel probe which will activate a switch to open the drawer. (Have a look among your kitchen utensils, there might be something there).
Hope it works, but you may find you need a new DVD/RW unit, so have a look around in the New Year Sales and use the opportunity to buy the best you can find at a bargain price.

You will either need the dealer to replace the lock set and reprogram the system or a well equipped locksmith.

Locked my keys

If by "secret trunk latch" you mean "brick through window" then yes. Seriously though, you can look up the tennis ball doorlock trick on youtube but I don't think it really works. Call a locksmith.

I lost the door key to my 1996 Cadillac diville, now every time i open the door the alarm goes off. How do i turn it off.

If you lost the door key and the remote locking fob push unlock on the fob twice. then you need to call a locksmith and have the door key made.

Lost key and i cannot remember my pin, i enter it and it just beeps at me

get hold of a locksmith. no person will give you any hints on opening a safe personal or not. locksmiths are bound by a work code NOT to divulge any secrets for opening a lock.

Lost keys

Why are you taking out the old one. Check with any good locksmith. If your door key fits the ignition, you can easily remove a door lock cylinder and the locksmith can make you a new key!!! I'm pretty sure to remove your lock you need to turn it with the key in it (but you don't have one)
