    There are 4 possible causes:

    1) The previous owner always used the remote to unlock and lock the doors
    and the lock became gummed over time. Try using Lock-Ease in the aerosol
    can to see if you can free up the lock.

    2) The previous owner always used the remote and use the key only in the
    ignition, so the key and ignition lock wore differently from the door and
    trunk locks.

    3) The ignition key is an imperfect copy and it happens to work in the
    ignition but not in the other locks.

    4) The ignition lock was changed at one time.

    Could the guy have just been given a valet key or do those open doors?

    The valet key opens the front doors.
