Yesterday i vacuumed and wet wiped the interior of our 1997 camry. when i finished and went to lock it with the remote, nothing happened - it wouldn't lock - dead silence. so i went inside and got the other remote and same. both the remotes had been working perfectly without any problems pior to this. the open door alert doesn't work now either but everything else seems to work fine. there are no blown fuses (says husband). could i have bumped something when vacuuming/wiping?? if so what and how do i fix it?
not sure if any connection to above, but the interior light has not worked for some time now and the bulb is not blown so maybe is switch??

central locking unit may have a fault. could just be a dry joint on the board. they usually good boxes. but have seen them do this in the past. also can be a faulty fuse vibration can crack the fuse or fuse over time. so shoulld check this to.
You may have two separate issues here. First as for the brake lights not working I'm guessing they all went out at once. If so there is stop lamp switch located on the arm of the brake pedal. If this switch stopped working then you will not have any brake lights. The panel underneath the dash has to be pulled out in order to see the switch. As for the locks not working the pnuematic pump which supplies vacuum for the central locking to work may have either quit working or shut down due to a vacuum leak in one of the vacuum elements. To check this go to the fuse panel in the trunk and look for the fuse for central locking and remove it for a few seconds and re insert. This will reset the pump and allow it to work again. Try the locks a few times to see if they are working. If they don't work right away then you may have a bad vacuum pump for the central locking. The central locking pump is located under the rear seat cushion on the passenger side. Hope this info helps you out if not let me know and I will try to do what I can to assist you.
Your central processor is erratci and givng into wrong commands. Start from exiting one by one from the battery of the remote to the main hand rest., Check for poor connection in the wiring harness specially in the areas of the door hinges where the wires go into the customer control.Also try to find out if any moisture or oil has clogged on to the main Unit.
Hope you have patience.

When holding the "OPEN" key, press the "LOCK" button three time. 6. After pressing the "LOCK" button 3 times, release the "OPEN" button. 7.

there is a sensor on the door lock in the door if it goes bad or falls off it will do that take the door panel off window up and look at the back side of the lock a small snap ring holds it on some even come unplugged
Replace the alarm control box, it is usually under the driver seat, or in the extreme left corner of the dash. If the box under the driver seat got wet for any reason, expect bizaare things to happen; in any case, replace the box.
