My front right door & rear left door are not opening or closing the security lock completely. I have to manually push down or pull out the security latch on the doors after shutting down the car it will not open or close the security latch completely. Both other doors work fine. I've heard that i has to do with some type of cable inside the door panel that needs adjustment for the electronic motor can pull or push the latch adequately. If so, how do I fix this?
Re: Toyota Corolla 98 doors not locking completely...
Maybe this will help... http://www.ehow.com/how_5105535_replace-toyota-corolla-door-handle.html You will need to remove the door panel for inspection, look for a
broken inner door handle or a link that may have fallen off at the door
latch, if everything is connected the door latch assembly has to be
replaced, by the way does the door open from the outside?

Toyota Corolla Verso - Central locking has just stopped responding
So you don't waste your time, here are some assumptions: -
1. When I press the key fob there is no sound of doors trying to lock/unlock and I know the key fob is fine.
In this situation reset the alarm/locking system
Below is the procedure I followed to get the central locking working again: -
Open the passenger door, and look at the side of the dash board. There should be a triangular panel. Pull the panel off to reveal a small set of fuses(see the back of the panel for the fuse map). To power down the central locking you need to remove the Dome Light fuse, this is located top left. Second one down 7.5 amps. (if in doubt remove the top two 7.5 amp fuses I did)
When you remove the fuse(s) you will notice the interior light go out indicating you have powered down the system.
Now leave them out for at least 30 mins so any capacitors can discharge properly. (Be aware while the fuse is removed all central locking is disabled, so the other doors are open. I left the fuse(s) out over night with all the doors open but I don't recommend it, 30 mins should be fine)
After 30 mins replace the fuse(s) close all doors, and then try your key fob, hopefully you should here that satisfying locking sound.
2. When I press the key fob I hear the locking system trying to engage.
This could be a faulty door switch on any door including the boot, or there could be a dent in the inner door panel of any of the doors, usualy the rear doors due to the seat belt not retracting properly.
Check all door switches for damage, and check inner panel for dents, just a small dent where the switch connects can be enough to not engage the switch. This will stop the central locking.
Use some kitchen roll wrapped in tape (as a makeshift pad) and tape to the inner door as a temp measure to engage the door switch. At least you can then lock the car.

Sometimes..........tapping with a rubber hammer around the door latch .....which is about halfway down the door at the rear of the door from the exterior.......THEN pulling the lock button open on the rear door will allow you to........open the door. Do not touch the outside handle until the inside lock button is triggered from inside the door. If this does open the door (s) do not RE LOCK them until the latches inside the doors are WELL lubricated.....this lubrication will require inside door panel removal.
This switch is in the lock it self. Push the lock into place with a screw driver (use the screw driver like the bar that the lock comes down onto)and the light should go off it you have all the wires still intacked.
I have the same problem on a Toyota Tercel 1997. I am trying to remove the door panel with the door closed (I can not open the door because the door knob is stuck in the lock position). I think I will have to cut through the panel. Have you found something ? My e-mail is email@example.com
