Question about 2000 Toyota Corolla
I have the following question:
After I changed the battery at my Toyota corolla 2000 something was reset in the system (I believe) and now when I turn the ignition key ON, even before the engine starts all the doors are locked automatically.
If I turn the key ON and want to clean the snow for example, I must keep one of the doors open or to open window, otherwise if the door closes I can not get in to the car and the engine is ON.
Please instruct me how I can remove the option of automatic door lock? I know it wasn’t there before I have a battery problem.
I also have “Ultra” remote starter on my Toyota 2000 for the following model:
Probably it is the remote starter troubleshooting that I need to look on?
Hi, you need to take the locks to a locksmith to have the keys made, they may have to be diferent than the original ones. good luck.

SOURCE: Door locks automaticly
Carry a spare key in a magnetic box on the car somewhere. I do. ($1.80 at Ace)
My jeep does this too but only if the Motor was running.
It was a real pain in winter when I'd start the car, kick on the heater then grab the scraper and hit the windows, The door would sometimes close and lock me out of a running car... in winter... in light clothes... at 4AM!
Now I just grab the spare key.
I am sure yours is a function of the built-in alarm system on the Camry and a wire needs only be disconnected or fuse pulled.. but I do not know that car (yet)

If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.

I am having the SAME problem with my 99 Corolla, Still searching for a way to disable the factory security system, for the last two years I have the vehicle hotwired through the headlights to start it. (1 wire to battery positive, 1 wire to starter hot lead, touch them together.) unfortunately this has proven very dangerous as the vehicle will start even in gear, and take off without a driver. additionally, because the alarm is going off continuously, the battery dies if not disconnected after every use. I found the fuse in the relay box that disbles the alarm, and the car starts fine, unfortunately, It it also the fuse for the alternator, so that solution will not work either. If anyone has found true way to disable the system, PLEASE offer your suggestions!

look around the car on each door, you will see a small black switch on which the door shuts on. This switch when open brings on the light and bell. Go around and check by pushing each one of these in. This should stop the light/chime. It works on what is called an open circuit, if you check each of the sensors and the problem persists, then one of the sensors may be faulty or their is a broken wire somewhere in the circuit. For the mean time to stop your battery going flat, remove the interior light globe.

Testimonial: "Thank you--I think I see which sensor is loose--now I just need to figure out what to do about it."
