SOURCE: my 08 toyota tacoma tailgate latch is jammed and

Some gravel has gone down the latch holes on each side. Take the tailgate out and place it on something that won't scratch it like an old blanket. Turn it upside down each way and gently tape on it with your hand to dislodge the gravel while operating the latch.

SOURCE: The door 1996 toyota camry is very hard to swing

Hello Mike. Your issue may be as simple as properly lubricating your door or based upon the age of your Camry, one of your hinges could need to be replaced. Let's try the inexpensive fix first. Get a can of WD-40 at any hardware store, auto parts store or walmart. This is a penetrating lubricant. Spray it into each of the hinges on your door and let it work. Repeat each day until the door works as it should.
If, after getting the door to operate better you notice that one of the hinges has rusted out somewhat, you will have to replace it. You can then go to most auto parts stores where they will now sell you the part, and even loan you the tools to repair it yourself. Regards. Joe

I've never even seen a Tacoma but usually these things work with thin steel rods inside the panel. Is the catch releasing on either side or not at all? If you can undo or prise off something to access the rod then hopefuly you can wriggle it enough to get the catch to release. Lashings of WD40 isn't going to hurt, just wipe it off the paintwork afterwards

1998 toyota tacoma headlight buzzer not working, how do I fix?


The problem lies in the door frame then. You will need to remove the push button in the door frame and check if it is grounded. You should have noticed that your dome light also stopped working. This is because it doesn't know when the driver door has been opened. Therefore, no alert that you left your headlights on, and no dome light. Check wiring.

Dead battery making a clicking sound


take the battery out of the veh and see if it will charge overnight on a charger, if not then the bat just ran its course I doubt it is 11 years old. Bats last anywhere from 3 to 5 years then they die if it does charge then your alternator needs to be replaced as it charges the battery when you drive, low voltage may cause the buzzing, tellin gyou there is a problem.

Program my remote


Program your factory keyless entry functions
For 2001+ Tacomas equipped with a factory alarm or keyless entrymag-glass_10x10.gif, here are some programming options that allow you to adjust the way your locks work.
The first programming option allows you to set the entry unlock to: (A) unlock the driver door with one push, and the remaining doors with a second push OR (B) unlock all of the doors with a single push.
  • Open the driver's door. Remove the key from the ignition switch.
  • (Complete these steps within 40 seconds)
    1. Insert the key into and remove it from the ignition switch 2 times.
      (IN - OUT - IN - OUT)
    2. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
      (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)
    3. Insert the key into and remove it from the ignition switch 1 time.
      (IN - OUT)
    4. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
      (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)
    5. Insert the key into the ignition switch and leave it in.
    6. Close the driver's door.
    7. Turn the key from LOCK to ON 4 times, ending at LOCK
      (LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK)
    8. Wait for the locks to stop, then remove the key from the ignition switch.
  • On the key fob, press and release both LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time.
    1. [For all doors unlock] press and release the UNLOCK button.
    2. [For driver door unlock] press and release the LOCK button.
  • Open the driver's door. The programming is complete. If programming did not occur, start over.
