Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Front passenger door lock won't lock/unlock

All the other door locks work on my 1998 Avalon except for the front passenger door.  It will not work either with the driver's door button or the key fob.  It will move just a tiny bit when we lock/unlock the other doors but not enough to be useful.

You need to replace the electric door lock solenoid.The electrical part of the solenoid may be compromised and is not letting the solenoid arm retract or extend to lock/unlock your door.

Front passenger door will not open 1998 Tercel


If the passenger door has not been opened for some weeks or months, or in icy weather, it is possible that the rubber seals around the door frame will cause the door to appear 'stuck' fast - in this case, a bit of extra force from inside the car whilst pulling on the interior door handle should cause the door to open. Failing that, if the car has electrically operated central locking, when the key fob is pressed to deactivate the central locking does the door lock on the passenger side work as expected? Try unlocking the passenger door with a key, and or pull the door lock button upwards to ensure that the lock has been deactivated. Check for blown fuses.

1998 Toyota Corolla Electric Door Lock Problem


You'll need to replace the solenoid (motor) that doesn't work. Not hard once you get the door panel off. I suggest you buy the correct part, not a universal one.
