Question about 2000 Toyota Corolla

Open Question

When i turn the ignition key ON, all the doors are locked

Hello,
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?

Please help.

Thank you
Arik

    i would go back to the folks who installed this aftermarket remote starter and have them turn this feature off. my father's subaru had this and it was so annoying.

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)
Good luck!

SOURCE: can not lock car by key remote . toyota rav 4 53 plate

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.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla and electronic key

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!

SOURCE: In my 2005 Corolla, the "door open" light is

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.

The unlock button on key wont work, when i use the key to open door the alarm goes off. The car drives but doors lock when I am inside and alarm goes off when I get out?


Have you changed the battery over on the key fob? If you key doesn't have a battery in it, then the chip in the key may be bad or the key may need to be re-synced with the cars ignition module.

I have a 2000 toyota corolla and the key will only turn to acc. We have tried the other key. The stering wheel is unlocked. We have jiggled the shifter to make sure it is in park.


See if you turn the wheel and try to turn the key at the same time if it releases. We might get a free spot where the key should turn. The lock may be in a bind and pressure on it may release it.
Clean and lubricate the lock cylinder. Electric cleaner to flush the dirt and liquid graphite to lubricate. A substitute for the electric cleaner is a spray of isoprophyl alcohol.
You may also need to tap the assembly for the ignition switch to release the mechanical parts. See if you can get the cover of the steering column off to gain access to the ignition switch assembly.
Check also if the spare does the same, other wise the key may have deformed.

Key buttons will not operate locking system,i have changed battery but still no good.use master key,gets me into the car but alarm goes off and also when i attempt to drive it.


I have the same problem kinda. Lost my master key and sent my ecu off with a home made 2 button key to program immobiliser. This key works to start the engin and drive but I cannot get the key to program with the alarm and locking system. You can try the following steps as may work for you.

I can get my car into programming mode after step 1 but step 2 does not work for me. The locks do not go off at all, not once or twice. Battery in remote key is fine as LCD lights red.

Can anyone help please?

2000 toyota corolla key will not turn in the ignition switch. tried jiggling the key, etc. but no luck. need idea on fix and approx cost in northern virginia area. thanks


Put a little machine oil on the key and insert it into the lock, move it around a bit and try again. You might be lucky. I have done it before successfully. Don't force it too hard, a broken key in the ignition is a bigger problem.

Our key stopped opening the driver's side door of our Toyota Corolla about two days ago. The key was able to be inserted into the lock, but would not turn. Since entrance to the vehicle was still possible...


Put light-weight oil on the key to lubricate the lock cylinder tumblers. ... Use cooking oil if nothing else available. Put the oil on the key and work the lock.
Wipe the keys when the locks start working.
The locks use "graphite" for lubrication. You can grind up pencil lead and use as a lock lubricant .... messy.

2000 toyota land cruiser door power lock


This is normal if I'm reading this right. The door locks are supposed to pop up when you turn off the key when in "child proof" mode. The reading lamp is wired to prevent low battery conditions by only operating when the engine is running. Did you just get the car?
