    Because it is a legal requirement in cars used as taxis in New Zealand to have that safety feature disconnected.

    The Owners Manual that came with the car is in English not Japanese so it could be said that I have got the wrong Manual, [as the car came into New Zealand as a second hand Japanese vehicle.] This manual shows the fuses under the bonnet where mine are but they do not fuse the window and locking circuits. No fuses could be found under the dash. I still want to lock the doors manually,- just stop the doors from locking automaticly.

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: 1989
Make: Toyota
Year of Recall: 1992
Type of Report: Vehicle
Potential Number of Units Affected: 554,910
Defect Summary:
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.
Consequence Summary:
If the door fails to open after ECU failure, vehicle occupants would have increased difficulty exiting the vehicle in an emergency.
Corrective Summary:
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!

Best regards,

What is wrong 2007 HHR cruise cntrl and auto door lock function stopped working at the same time ?


Automatic Door Lock Operation
This BCM controlled feature can be personalized to driver preference.
The BCM will automatically lock the vehicle doors if the following conditions exist:
• All vehicles doors are closed.
• The ignition is in the ON position.
• The vehicle is shifted out of PARK.
The BCM will then unlock the doors when the ignition is placed in the OFF position. The body control module (BCM) monitors the signal circuit of the cruise control switches. The BCM relays the cruise control switch status to the engine control module (ECM) via the GMLAN serial data circuit. The ECM uses the status of the cruise control switch to determine when to capture and maintain the vehicle speed. The ECM monitors the vehicle speed signal circuit in order to determine and the desired vehicle speed. The ECM uses the throttle actuator control (TAC) motor in order to maintain the vehicle speed. For further information on the TAC system, refer to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 2.2L (L61) engine or to Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System Description for the 2.4L engine. Ignition voltage is supplied to the cruise control switch from the 2-amp EPS fuse located in the integrated BCM fuse block.
You should have the BCM checked for DTC'S

Want to demobilise automatic door lock


Easy enough to do. You could identify the fuse that does this, or disconnect the wire from the speedometer, or pull and tape one of the solenoid wires in all of the doors. Depends on which is easiest.

2006 Tahoe Z71 Lift Gate Will Not Unlock With Remote


Take the liftgate inside panel off an check the wiring , connections etc....
rear door hatch lock repair GMC Chevrolet
chevy tahoe lift gate not opening
The liftgate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the liftgate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
The liftgate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a liftgate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the liftgate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the liftgate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the liftgate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the liftgate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and liftgate will unlock.
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the liftgate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the liftgate lock circuit and that the liftgate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following

There is a broken wire in the rubber casing between the door and the vehicle. Take the rubber casing off and you will more than likely find a broken wire or one about to break. Been there and done that.
