Question Door Key Lock Does Not Open

Used lubricate a few times with some short term success, Graphite base, and silicon based. Is this a common issues. Next I will most likely disable the lock to troubleshoot it. Any comments?

Thanks!

Look at your key and see if it's really smooth/worn out. I had the same issue where I couldn't turn the key in any of my locks, aside from the ignition: 65 dollars and a trip to the dealer for a new key later and all is well.
