    Thank you but all remote functions fail using both fobs leading me to believe it is more centralized than your suggestion. Any other thoughts? G

All of the locks don't function at times or just one door? If it is just one door the lock actuator is likely defective or the wiring harness to the door has a broken wire inside the wire insulator that runs through the rubber convoluted tube from the body to the door.

SOURCE: doors wont lock

It sounds like the key cylinder, in the door, has become frozen. You can try putting some powered graphite or penetrating oil into the key hole and work it free. Or take the door panel off and replace it.
If you decide to replace parts then do yourself a favor and remove the panel first. Inspect all related parts and make sure it is the key cylinder and not the door latch or something else.

Doors unlock by themself


Assuming you mean door unlocks while parked? Toyota will not allow door to be locked using the remote control while key is in the ignition or if you with a wireless proximity key (now referred to as a FOB), while the wireless key is still in the car. If these are not the case, you may need to check out the sensor in the ignition or if using a FOB, the computer interface between the FOB circuit and the door lock.

a. When you lock the doors (with the Switch) with you inside... do they stay locked?
b. Do your Doors lock automatically when you put it in gear?

Sliding doors won't lock or unlock using keyless.


there are 3 possibilities that I would check first. 1: make sure the contacts on the door, and body where the touch are clean. the lock and unlock signal are sent through these. 2: You may try replacing the battery in your key fob. 3: the power lock motors may have gone bad. To check, lock the doors with the drivers door panel, if they lock, they are fine. Another solution may be to recode your key fob. procedure for coding the fob to your vehicle can be found online.
