How to disable auto-locking of your Toyota when you engage gear

As above, and works for all toyotas of a certain age, if it auto-locks when you put the car in gear, you can disable this if you wish - here's what to do:

Put the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position. Open the driver's door and remove the key (keep door open). Put the key in and out 4 times (in/ out only without any turning of the key) with the key taken out at the end. Hit the drivers side unlock button 5 times. Wait at least ten seconds and shut the driver's door. Away you go. If the car battery is ever disconnected it will reset this function, so you would have to repeat the above sequence once if this ever happens to disable the auto locking once again - or to put it back on, just disconnect the car battery for 10 minutes - remember to get the radio code before taking the battery off for any reason!

Need to know how to adjust the door auto lock function.


Not an easy fix! The door lock function was designed to lock doors only. you can however, disable this lock feature by simply cutting the light blue automatic door lock signal wire on the 6-wire harness plug connector located on the chime module (In component center).
