Question about 2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5
Replaced front speakers - removed door panels. All good when put back, then locks won't work. not just front doors. Works fine when engine running, either nothing happens or locks, then immediately unlocks when engine off. Key unlock after manual lock won't unlock door(s). What did I screw up?
You possibly need to reprogram the lock system to match your fobs.
If it unlocks by the interior switches then its the fob programming. This site is one example you can look for. http://www.chadspictures.com/automotive/How-To-Program-Toyota-Key-Fob/ If this is not the issue the computer that does the door locks could have died or you can look for the door lock fuse or a cut or pinched wire (due to other damage in an accident or from prior mods you did). Other possibilities include intermittent door solenoids if you can use the interior switch you can click it open and closed until you find the one that does not work every time. Change it out as it can leave your vehicle unlocked or it might interrupt the system. worst case it could be the chassis computer this site sells some http://www.automotix.net/usedautoparts/2008-toyota-sequoia-chassis_computer-product-i88489256n.html?gclid=CKfowo60gb8CFQQOaQodGqUArQ . If the shift lock system is screwed up it could be casing issues also but that's a long shot.

Remove the door panel and reconnect the plug going to the front driver door lock or, if you can hear the motor trying to engage the door lock cam when you press the lock/unlock remotereconnect the door lock lever bar

SOURCE: manual door locks won't unlock
I recommend pulling the door panel off and getting a better look. There are little nylon retainers that slip over the metal rods in the door which connect the door handles, locks, latches etc (usually on the ends of the rods). Quick guess is that the end of the rod is sliding in there but because its still clipped onto the rod, it appears to be all there, in its proper place and working correctly. I'm also guessing that there has been a lot of penetrating oil sprayed into the door in an attempt to free the tight lock mechanisms. In reality, allowing the broken parts to slide into a stuck position more easily. Pop the door pnl off, start wiggling and moving different parts of the lock, latch, handles etc... You may want to ask your wife to help turn the door lock key outside while you're watching things move inside. I'll bet the issue(s) become very clear in no time! Good luck!
