2007 yaris door wont lock when driver door is open

I think these 3 problems are related.... but maybe just #1 and #2: 1 - After turning off the car, the radio stays on for a number of seconds after the driver door is opened. It used to turn off immediately when the door was opened. This is not a big deal, but might give insight to #2, which started happening more or less around the same time. 2- After turning off the car, removing the key from the ignition switch, and opening the driver side door to exit the car, I usually use the door mounted electronic lock switch to lock the doors, because the car does not have remote key fob. This method has worked for years. Recently, however, the switch will move the lock, then immediately will unlock the door, refusing to lock the door while the door is open. After a number of seconds... 5-15 or so, it will usually let me lock it. Thisi is the exact same behavior it does when the key is still in the ignition, and you try to lock the doors with the driver side door open. Because of 1 and 2, I believe that the car might be sensing that the key is in the ignition switch sometimes when it isn't there. 3 - my wife recently had an episode where she could not get the key to turn the ignition switch. she tried for 30 minutes before it would turn. She tried all the old tricks of wiggling the steering wheel and trying to move the shift lever etc in case the interlock mechanism was just not adjusted quite right. finally she got it to turn. Thoughts?

Sounds like the ignition lock is worn out.

SOURCE: toyota avalon 2006 key fob apparently doesn't work

It looks like you have the "Smart Key" (a small rectangular box) that does not look like a traditional key.
What you also have is a dead battery inside the Smart Key.
Look closely at the box; there is a little button on the side. Press it. This will release a small hidden key. After you remove the small key, use a small flat blade screwdriver to pry the case of the box open at the slot provided. Take the unit to a store that sells miniature batteries, and have it replaced. You will NOT have to reprogram it after the battery is changed. The life span of the miniature batteries is roughly 20 months, less if exposed to RFI, like sitting on a TV, a monitor, or other electrical device. The Smart key TRANSMITS all of the time, even when you do not press the buttons. This is why the battery only lasts 18-20 months. Let me know if this fixes your issue..

SOURCE: Drive Door lock only works manually

It is not that hard to fix. Actuater is sold as part of the assembly. You can't just replace it by itself. Order the part online for a lot less than dealer. I learned that when the passenger side did the same thing a couple months later and I saved $150 on line. Remove the inside door panel. Remove lock assembly from door. Remove door handle.

I have a Holden Barina Hatch 2012 model.


I think the system on that car enables you to open the petrol flap once the drivers door is unlocked (either by pulling the cap open or pressing on the flap).

1. Lock the car using the central locking.
2. Insert the key on the drivers door, turn it once and unlock it. Open the door to check you have unlocked it. Then turn the key in the lock again as if you were unlocking it a 2nd time.
3. Now open the petrol flap as the lock should have released.

Since the BCM must be checked for function with a special scan tool, and if defective replaced, then the new LCM module must be programmed to your vehicle. I think also the module in this year and model car is called the "LCM" or lighting control module. Same functions different name.

2007 Yaris Sedan key will not turn in either door. It works in the trunk door lock and ignition. Am I missing something simple? Have always used the remote entry but recently found it necessary to use...


The door locks may require lubrication; they are likely sticking as they haven't been physically turned with a key for a while. Spray a little WD-40 in there.

Have a 2006 beetle convertible with several problems unknown if they are related. 1) driver side window sometimes will not roll down when door is opened causing damage to top 2) car will not turn over for...


inside the mechanical lock (The part that actualy holds the door shut when you close it) there is a switch that informs the control unit that the lock is either locked or unlocked.
These switches fail sometimes, when this happens the control unit is not aware that you have opened the door, and therefor will not wind the window down slightly.
This is also likely to be the cause of problem # 3 , door will not lock. I fthe faulty switch is not informing the control unit that the door is closed, the central locking will not try to lock the door (because it thinks the door is still open).
The switch is integral with the lock unit, and they are not easy things to replace either.
as for the wipers and engine fault, there could be a number of different possible faults here, would have to be looked at.

2007 Lincoln Mark LT Key Fob


Theres only 1 way to tell if it will work - try it :)

Here is the procedure to marry a new remote to your truck.

1. Close all doors and then open drivers door and press the UNLOCK
button on drivers door panel while door is open and insert key in ignition.

2. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN (not start) 8 times within 10 seconds, with the
8th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming
mode.

3. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote.
Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

4. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote.
Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming.

5. Turn ignition to OFF.
Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.



Both the Escape and LT program the same - the transponder should have the same resistance.


Try it out!!
