Question about 1997 Toyota Camry
Must have car running for automatic door lock to work. (used to be able to shut off and have a little power to lock the doors) All lock except driver's side door. The weird thing about the dash clock is, that when car is started the clock comes on but always starts at 1:00. If any car door is opened while the car is running, the clock resets to 1:00 again.
Alternater is working fine and got a new battery approx a month ago.
I HAD the same problem.... first check the fuse under the hood labeled 'dome' should be a 7.5A it is blown for sure... also if you are good with wiring and at working on cars look at the drivers side doo wiring (between the inside door jam and the drivers side floor... its the wiring that goes through the door to the cabin.... anyway you have to take off the door panel and remove a small cover on the floor of the drivers side.... now remove the two connectors that go to the wiring harness.... you should now be able to loosen the grommet and pull the wiring harness through the door via the speaker hole (you should have removed the speaker already) you now must inspect the wiring which is most likely frayed and/or broken now fix the wiring with some new wiring and crimp connectors and heat shrink your work.... should be good as new... have fun getting the wiring back through the door... it will be bigger due to the crimp on connectors etc..... i did a quick write up of this so i hope it is understandable
