Hey There,

On my 2003......

The key only unlocks the drivers side door and the rest if you use the switch on the door. The tailgate lock is all that opens when the key is used or the switch on the drivers door and the passenger side door singularily with the key not the others.

Is there a way, using the key to unlock the door all at once?

Any help always great.

Apparently not. 2003 owner's manual page 88: "Only the driver’s door unlocks when you use the key or the lock tab."

After that you have to use the electric switch inside the driver's door.

I think its a safety feature to keep unwanted guests from jumping in your car when you unlock it. The same reason when you push the unlock button on the fob once it unlocks the drivers door and the second time it will unlock the others.
