Question about 1998 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

Windows wont roll down and central locking doesnt work

I unlocked my the front door to the 4runner, from the outside, then opened the back door to get something out. Then I got in the car and wanted to use the central lock and it felt stiff and it didn't lock any of the doors. Then I tried to roll down the windows (electrically) and none worked...this is the first time it had ever happened. Now I cant roll down the windows and need to lock and unlock any of the doors manually..

Sounds as if you have a bad switch (you say it felt funny) and these get so much use they do fail. Salvage yard may have this, or check with a parts store. Dealer will be expensive.

SOURCE: door locks

Regarding the rear door child locks: There is a small lever on the latch side of the door, you can only see it with the door open. Move it to the other position.

Regarding the front door locks: You either have a bad door lock switch, or the power lock solenoids are beginning to fail. To check this, you will need to pull the door panels off, & measure the actual voltage at the solenoids whilst manipulating the lock switch. If you have 12 + VDC, I would suggest replacing the door lock solenoids. Not hard to change, but it IS time consuming. Best left to a dealer. Expect to pay 1 hour per side to change each solenoid.

SOURCE: central locking not locking all locks from drivers

You will need to replace the driver door switch. You can try to pick a switch up from the dealer or a local car wrecker (i.e. Pick-n-Pull). It will involve learning to take apart the door trim panel.

1994 toyota 4 runner electric windows will stop working wont roll up or down then sometimes work again. the electric locks also aree not working properly if i push the driver door lock it unlocks al


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

My door handle wont open my door on the drivers side. I have to roll down my window to open the door from the outside latch. Is it repairable, or do I have to replace any parts?


I have shaved door handles on a 2000 chevy silverado and the drivers side door just recently stopped opening it seems like its completely locked out and the door is closed so i cannot get to the bolts of the latch assembly when i hit the unlock button it unlocks half way and when you go to open the door it relocks itself even if you manually try to unlock the door and hold the lock forward it still wont open

Windows wont roll down


I suspecft this is a security programming situation. I have something similar going on with my '95. I have to get an owners manual to find the sequences. I stumbled into this by manually locking the front door and turning on the key with the door open.
re: the dash lights. I find if I have the interior light dimmer all the way to the right it locks out some things but moving it back to the middle puts it back in operational mode. aside from the flashing, non playing stero. At least I can drive it and powerlock the doors IF the doors are closed.

You need a body control computer, which controls the windows, door locks and other items. The new computer will have to be programed by a good imports shop or Nissan dealer.
