Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4
Pls explain if you have electric door locks or not. A seized solenoid (if you do) will preevnt the latch from working...Regardless of whether you do or not, anything wrong with the alternator will give not you door lock issues. You problem is purely mechanical. The electronic function (option) just assists the mechanical (non-powered) door locks. The doors should work; (the lock/unlock/open/close) even with the battery disconnected, using the manual controls.
