Question about 2005 Lexus GS

1 Answer

I don't like automatic door locking feature of my 2005 Lexus 300

I understand the need for automatic door locking when the car is in motion, and appreciate it when I am driving my grandchildren around. However, I do not like the feature that keeps the doors locked when parked.
I am frustrated that I often go out into the garage to get something out of my car only to find the doors locked, when I didn't lock them. Often I leave the car for only a minute, for example when cleaning out the interior, only to return to find the car locked..I am tired of having to use my remote or key every time I close the car doors.
Is there a way to turn off this feature?
I've only had the car for a short time so maybe there is something about this feature that I am just not understanding. Thanks.

when you lock the doors it automatically arms itself. you can disarm by inserting the key in the driver's side door and unlock the door lock, it should disarm if the alarm goes off.

A seized up door lock actuator. You can try freeing it up by spraying a good penetrating oil, my favorite is PB Blaster. If it wont free up you will need to replace it.

How to remove the door panel of a 1999 Lexus RX 300


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
