    not sure on the vectra but have seen it on other motors as the lock is never used as people always use their fobs to open the car and the lock barrel gets seized up

    That's not how you syncronise them. RTFM will tell you how.

    As for the locks not turning, you have to turn the key quite hard to overcome the deadlock mechanism.
