How are you trying to unlock it? with the keyfob, button inside the car? in any case this can be a little hard to diagnose but i'll try my best. if the door tries to unlock but doesn't unlock a lot of the time it may be a weak door lock actuator, if the door just doesn't respond to unlock commands it may be a module or a short in the wiring. the locking when put in drive is a normal characteristic of the car. being that this vehicle uses modules for everything it would be a good idea to have it checked out at a dealer with the proper scan tools and calibrating equipment. other than that the only other thing i can think of is the mechanical linkage inside the door binding up, not allowing the door to unlock when commanded. if you can get the panel off you might be able to check the rods and linkages yourself to see if there is a binding issue and also to check if the actuator is responding to commands. without seeing the car in person to witness the issue your describing its hard to give you an exact fix for this problem but i hope i helped!

Shut the hood, make sure the back hatch is shut tight. Lock all the doors. Walk around and make sure they locked. Open the drivers door with the key. This should clear the security. If not lock it again and try the passenger side door. Reach in and unlock the drivers door. If it cleared then. Replace the drivers door latch on the back side. Inside the door.

All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?


this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

My door locks wont stay locked when put in the locked position


Many Chrysler vehicles won't let you lock your keys in. If locked from the inside, or locked before closed, the doors unlock upon closing. If you don't have a remote, you'll have to lock the doors with the key after you close them.

How can I program the door locks on my 2002 Camry so they do not lock when you put the car in gear?


Put the key in the ignition, turn to the on position. Open the driver's door and remove the key (keep door open). Put the key in and out 4 times (in/ out only without any turning of the key) with the key out at the end. Hit drivers side unlock button 5 times. Wait at least ten seconds and shut the driver's door. Away you go. It will stay like this unless you remove the cars battery - if so you will have to do that sequence again. Works for most if not all toyotas

CHevy cobalt door locks- lock and unlock while I am driving had key fob reprogrammed and it was ok for about two hours and started all over again. What can the problem be?


Could be a problem in the shiftier. Your car doors lock automatically when you put the car in drive. They unlock when you put the car in park. The switch located in the shiftier can go bad causing the locks to randomly lock and unlock. Also, this can cause the key to get stuck in the ignition.

Locks unlocking while driving.


Has the switches on your driver or passanger side gotten wet anytime lately? I had to replace the switch that you actually click to unlock and lock because it had gotten wet and my car would set it's alarm after waiting 30 seconds when you would try to open the door. Changing this is an easy and cheap fix. I hope it helps!
