Took the 2005 LT out for a ride, tried to open the top case when we got home, and it would not open. Latch remained locked in both keyed postions. Open and Locked
Push botton lock will not depress.
Used the info. on this site to open the case........ turn key CW 1/8 turn and that overrides the tumbler lock. I can open the case using this method.
Also I have removed all remote locking case clyd. from this bike.
The question is......... has the tumbler lock failed? How do I fix it?

Sounds like the actuator has failed in the locked position. Once you open it with the 1/4 turn method you should be able to go into the area were the actuator is under the liner and move the lever manually and test the lock with the case open.
