Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Want to make inoperative the automatic locking of the doors when the vehicle reaches 20kph
Ah Yes..good reason.
Go to your fuse panel (under your dash). Remove the fuse marked "door". It may be named something else, perhaps "locks".
Once you find and remove the fuse, give it a try at speed. Hopefully the fuse only supplies door lock power and not your windows. More than likely this will render your door locks completely manual.
However, there was a recall on this vehicle for this problem.
NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 92V135000
Component: Structure: Door Assembly: Latches And Locks
Manufacturer: Toyota Motor Co., Ltd.
Year of Recall: 1992
Type of Report: Vehicle
Potential Number of Units Affected: 554,910
The electronic control unit (ECU) for the power door lock system can fail, causing the contacts to "weld", and resulting in door lock solenoid damage, with failure of the door to lock or unlock, even under manual operation.
If the door fails to open after ECU failure, vehicle occupants would have increased difficulty exiting the vehicle in an emergency.
Install an additional sub-circuit relay control to prevent malfunction of original relays in the ECU.
So the thing to do is contact your local Toyota dealer and have the recall performed.
I hope this helps!
