    That is the problem I believe it is the lock mechanism in the door. It is what ever part latches to the striker on the body frame itself

    are you talking about the inner door handle, the outer door handle, the lock mechanism in the door, or the striker on the post.?

Make sure window is up. Remove inner door panel. Disconnect latch mechanism. Should be a few nuts holding handle on. Unscrew them. Install front door outside handle frame sub-assembly. Using a torx wrench (Usually T30) install the outside handle.

I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma. The fob key works but locks only 3 doors (passenger and 2 back doors) but not the driver side door. Any idea on the problem?


it could be the power door lock motor on that door or the lock motor is not getting the signal from the module.some times the wires that run between the car body and the door break and need repairing.these are covered by a rubber tube that is fastened one end to the body the other to the door,you can see it with the door open.
