C180k central locking

When i press the remote button the passenger side door button jumps up and down. after 5 to 10 attempts it opens the door.
any ideas? i have done some searching via the net but the answers vary & no one seems to know where the pump is located!
oh by the way all the other doors are fine.

Hi, It is not a problem with the pump. Your door lock/latch assembly need to be replaced. Very common on these vehicles.

Front passenger door will not open 1998 Tercel

If the passenger door has not been opened for some weeks or months, or in icy weather, it is possible that the rubber seals around the door frame will cause the door to appear 'stuck' fast - in this case, a bit of extra force from inside the car whilst pulling on the interior door handle should cause the door to open. Failing that, if the car has electrically operated central locking, when the key fob is pressed to deactivate the central locking does the door lock on the passenger side work as expected? Try unlocking the passenger door with a key, and or pull the door lock button upwards to ensure that the lock has been deactivated. Check for blown fuses.

Passenger door not opening with central locking

1st wind the glass down and turn the key in the driver door twice in clockwise direction to lock, at the sound of the second click try try opening the door thru the window (passenger) manually. you will need to pull the knob twice before it opens. you can get all the passenger doors open this way until you decide to change central lock system. To activate the remote; insert the key into driver door while pressing the lock or unlock button on the remote for at least five-ten seconds which should get it functioning normally again. hope this helps. it worked on mine.

Check your remote batteries.Listen for any sounds coming from the passenger door lock when operating the drivers door switch.The lock could be faulty.Have a diagnostic check done at a dealer to tell you whats wrong , this is normally free , before stripping anything..
