2007 yaris door lock, radio stays on, and key wont turn occasionally

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?

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..

Hello. I will try to provide assistance to you, with the hope that you will give me a FixYa rating for my advice.

First, as a Toyota Service Manager, I can ASSURE you that there is NO "minimum mileage" before a dealer will look at it. That is a direct VIOLATION of the Direct Agreement between Toyota and the dealer body.

Second, what I would do is call this number : 1-880-331-4331

That is the Toyota Customer Experience Center. Call them, explain your situation and the dealership that is refusing service, and the CEC will get in touch with that dealer, and inform them that they HAVE to look at your car. After you call, expect a call from the Customer Relations Manager at the dealership in question, within 3 business days after your call to the CEC.

I hope that the dealership gets your car fixed up for you.
Please feel free to respond back, if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thnaks for choosing FixYa fore assistance!

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.

Keyless entry isn't working and alarm was tripped

Check your door latches. Since the light stays on, one of them isn't reading properly. Once you get that fixed, the remote should work. The light problem could be related. The computer thinks the door isn't shut so that part of the system thinks you aren't moving.

I slammed the passenger door too hard and now the radio doesnt stay on when key is turned off, the auto lock on that door doesnt work and the dome light wont come on 2007 ford escape

I`d check the flexible wiring between the door and the car to make sure it hasn`t been trapped or snapped.

Also check the fuses to make sure one (or more) haven`t blown

Brake lights stay on

Your brake light switch is stuck on, this is also why the cruise is in-op, the cruise is turned off anytime you touch the brake pedal otherwise the car would try to accelerate when you tried braking. The brake light switch is located above the brake pedal, look up the arm the pedal is attached to and you will see it, the switch is not real expensive, and it is easy to install with simple hand tools. As far as the door lock issue fix the brake light switch and try it, not sure it is related unless it all started at the time the brake lights started staying on. Post back after you replace the switch if door problem remains. Thanks
