I wish I had the answer. But, I have the exact same problem with a 1999 4runner. Hoping someone has the answer. The dealer I purchased it from just replaced the actuator, still no good. One dealer said maybe the master switch, hopefully not, they said that part is $400. Maybe a relay going bad?

I have a 2003 Toyota 4-Runner. The keyless alarm has stopped working on the drivers side door.

On the driver side the actuator is more likely the culprit,the linkage could of come off or the actuator just doesnt work

Drivers door power lock wont work.

Either the wring going to that motor or the motor itself is bad.

If a vehicle has manual locks that means, to make it power locks you will have to install power locks motors on all doors, and change all of the door panels with switches and get a power box, for the operation of the door locks, and it will have to be wired to the fuse box.....

My suggestion, go buy a truck with power locks....
