1999 Toyota Camry door lock and unlock issues

I bought a 1999 Toyota Camry V6 3.0L automatic. It driven by a old woman and has only 43K miles on it. The problem I have is that when I insert the key to drvier side door(no remote), then it only unlock that door. If I insert the key from pasenger side, then it unlock all 4 doors. It seems to me it could be factory default (either wired wrong or firmware (programming) is wrong). Does anyone know how it can be fixed, so I can unlock/lock all 4 doors from a key from the driver side door. I appreciate if you also send email to me when you post some answers (qazx1900@yahoo.com)

I believe this was done as a safety feature. It stops a potential car hyjacker from sneaking in the passenger door when you open the driver door. I know recent Hyundai models are set up such that if you turn the key in the driver's door once it only unlocks the driver's door. If you turn it twice in quick succession it unlocks all of the doors. Maybe the Camry is set up the same way.

How do you reset the alarm on a 1999 toyota camry if i dont have the remote locking mechanisim


Operation of the theft deterrent system is discussed in the 1999 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual beginningh on page 21. Unlocking the door with the key should disarm the alarm system. If it does not disarm when using the key, there are only two possibilities:

> You have an aftermarket alarm system installed in addition to the system tht was provided by the manufacturer and they are interfering with each other.

> OR

> Your vehicle needs service to correct the malfunction.

You might try unlocking the car from the passenger side or use the key to open the trunk first to see if this works. If it does, the switch inside the driver door is probably malfunctioning.

My battery was dead in my 1999 camery this morning. I took the battery out and took it to the auto parts store to get it tested. They told me I needed a new battery so I bought it and brought it home and...


If you have a keyless remote, use it to lock and unlock your doors-if not, lock your door with the door lock, close the door, and unlock the door with the key. This should reset the alarm.
