1991 Toyota Previa LE - driver door won't unlock

The driver door is not unlocking no matter what I do: when I use the key from the outside, or from the inside, when I flip the little button in the "unlock" position (it will not toggle completely when I try to "unlock" the door from the inside, it will flip back to the "locked" position when I release it.

    It has power door locks. The lock on the inside of the door shows that it has been unlocked, in
    the sense that it moves into the unlocked position, but the door doesn't
    open. All the other doors unlock when I use the key on the outside of the driver's door, but the driver's door does not open.

Why1996 previa wont turn over , has new starter

Did the anti-theft system get activated? Clear it with the key by locking then unlocking the driver door. It cost me $100 to learn that lesson when I had to tow it home.

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore

When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

Driver door wont open

You probably either have a piece of linkage that has come loose inside the door or the latch mechanism is stuck halfway between "lock" and "unlock" (fairly common on some vehicles). You will need to remove the driver's seat to make room to work so the driver's door panel can be removed if you cannot open the door from either the inside or the outside.

If you can get the door open, then the door panel should be removed to inspect the linkage and latch mechanism.

The door afar sensors are located in the door latches. Try spraying all the door latches with wd40 penetrating oil and see if that helps.

1991Toyota Previa DRIVER WON'T UNLOCK

Does the handle have tension when you lift it , or is it free floating? Could be a broken plastic lever on the inside of the handle. Does the electric unlock work for the other doors? Can the door be opened?

You could call a locksmith who will reach in by the window glass and release the lock. $50 to !00. Less if you drive it to his shop. That will get you in, but it may happen again. I don't see much choice but to remove the door panel and take a look. Remove all visible screws, some can be hidden behind plastic plates. The rest of the attachments are probably plastic snaps and clips. Remove the panel and see what is not happening.

Auto parts stores, online, or perhaps the library may have a Chilton's manual. it will have full pictures and details. Well worth the $10. I've done numerous similar repairs to my wife's Sienna. Lock motors, door handles, blown speakers, power window motors, etc. All parts are available on line.

Sliding passenger door will not unlock/ open

I assume you mean a 1991 Previa (that was the first year of the model). It is likely you have broken a small spring inside the door that connects the handle to the latch. The only way to tell is to remove the inner door panel (two screws: one under the door handle and one midway along the upper part of the interior door structure then pull out and up).
