Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Locking and unlocking on its own

I have just purchased a pre loved '94 and it is locking and unlocking by itself. I am wondering if it is the fuse or something in the remote. My mechanic said theres probably something wring with one of the doors in particular but that if it were that then one door (the one with the issue) would stay either locked or unlocked when this occurs. Which fuse is for the central locking? Id like to remove that for the time being until wenget to the source of the problem. We pulled out a couple of likely fuses and even disconnected the inside switch in the centre console area. Nothing

    Hi Nohblee, Start by pressing the remote once to lock the car, then a second or two later press remote again. It will give you a little beeb that is different from the regular beebs when locking or unlocking with the remote.

    The solution of your problem is two fold. The first step is to check for any wiring problem or short circuit in the harness and the other step is to reprogram the system.

    1. Check the following:

    - May be the master control in the door is water contaminated. - Check the connectors for loose, burnt or corroded. - Check the harness bunch for purged wiring between the chassis and the door from where the harness enters into the master door. - Check the main control module in the door and the motors for jammed. - Check all the door locking motors for jammed. - The major problem could be in the main control module or the master door. If the problem persists, try to program the remote. These steps are tested on Camry from 1999 to 2005.

    after a long arduous exercise of checking each door for issues ive figured it out! theres a relay under the dash on the passenger side. behind the glove box somewhere thst is clicking by itself! so its a case of rip that out and replace it or just keep my doors all disconnected and manually lock them

SOURCE: 1991 Toyota Camry DX - Front Passenger Door Lock won't disengage

Your power door locke solenoid is seized. You will need to replace it. You are going to have to get the entire door panel off, and then reach in to manually pull the solenoid arm to retract the lock mechanism. Then the door will open.

SOURCE: 99 4-runner limited-power door locks dont lock, but will unlock

I have found a ridiculous solution for this door lock issue. As many people have mentioned, it does involve the control panel under the driver side dash. I noticed that if I pushed the control panel/fusebox in while working the key fob and/or door lock switch, IT WORKED! So, my silly solution was to insert a t-ball (regulation size) between the fusebox/control panel and the paneling closest to the driver on the top side of the fusebox. IT WORKS!!

Glad I didn't spend $500 for Toyota dealer to fix.

Hope my son doesn't miss his t-ball!!

SOURCE: can not lock car by key remote . toyota rav 4 53 plate

If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.

Is there a fuse or factory reset for the drivers door switch. The only controls that work are rear window controls. The mirror control, front window controls, and lock/unlock do not work. Passenger...

Yeah,there is fuse.I suggest you pull each fuse out and check it.Make sure wire in the fuse is in one piece.If broken ,replace it .If no fuses are blown,then your problem is in the switch itself.Locate junkyard and purchase used one instead buy a new.It will save you some money.

Alarm system goes off by itself

Your system may have a backup battery that has low voltage when the car is turned off. You may have to look under the dash to see if you can find the main computer for the alarm.
