My drivers door power lock wont work on my 2000 toyota 4 runner. I have tried locking and unlocking with the door lock button on the control panel and also with the auto key remote lock and unlock button. The only way it will work is to manually open it with the key itself. All 3 of the other door locks unlock and lock fine from both the control panel and the remote device....HELP!

It is a common problem that may be quickly remedied. Try this....spray your door hinges with a good penetrating oil...then work them back nd forth as to open and close. You are possibly losing ground.Also check to be sure you have a good ground from the body to engine.Hope this helps
