SOURCE: passenger door lock jammed

Your door latch assembly may be compromised. It could be rusted, the electric solenoid (if it has one) may be seized. Or the rods from the key are bent. Are you using th key in this door regularly? If not, the tumblers in the lock may be seized. Spray some WD-40 in the lock where the key goes, and jam the key in & out repeatedly, and retry. Remove the door panel & spray the interior of the latch, also. Hope this works for you; or, you are going to need new latches.

SOURCE: 97 RAV4 door won't open. Or unlock

These can be a nightmare!
Try pushing / pulling all cables and rods available. And key operation if connected.
If there is a solenoid to operate it, remove the connector and use a meter to find the motor wires. Cautiously apply 12v from a handdrill battery - first one way - then the other to see if the drive motor will unlock it.

As a last resort - Drill a 1/4" hole in the lock body - and use that as a pilot hole for a 20mm holesaw - destroy the lock mechanism to gain entry - the lock was beyond repair anyway - so needed replacement - Just don't damage other components if possible.

Hi, My 2013 Toyota RAV4 front passenger door lock is caught. It sounds like it locks/unlocks- but we can't get it open-seems caught. How can we fix this? We don't use keys, always have fobs in our poc


SO DOES THE METAL KEY WORK OR NOT?

If the electonics magic fails , this is first., right?

just passenger door?

so locks can jam, and can be very hard to fix.

object stuck there, (closing door with junk in hands)

also playing with latch, by kids can trip it into an illegal mode.

first get it closed, 100% is it.

then use the key, if that don\'t work it needs service.

the key is for emerancies, say baby stuck in car, so..... use it.

How can I manually unlock my rear door if the actuator is bad. My rear fate door is stuck in the lock position and I can not unlock it with the key fob or auto lock. 2007 rav 4


Access the gate latch from the inside by removing the interior door panel. Once the gate is open, replace the actuator and you should be good to go.

You will need to try reprogramming the remote 1st, below is the complete procedure. If the reprogram doesn't restore function then you will need the dealer to test the keyless entry system, you may have a bad module or remote (only applies if both remotes don't work).

Start with the key out of the ignition, drivers door is open all others closed and
drivers door is unlocked.

2. Perform these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Close the drivers door
D. Insert the key into ignition and leave it in ignition.
E. Turn the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
F. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically
indicating successful entry into programming mode.
Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1.5 seconds.
B. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
Press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door
locks should lock and then unlock once indicating successful programming. If
the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was
not accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Open drivers door.

I have a 2007 Tahoe, the rear cargo door (lift type) will not unlock. Sometimes it sounds like the door unlocks, but when I attempt to open it, it's locked. The window on the cargo door functions properly....


you know , i had a very, very similar experience just a month ago. The liftglass is also working.Just like you, we used to open doors like these types every now and then, and as for you, your truck. Somehow both of us know the feel, ya know, if the locks are disengaged and ready to lift, right? So by that moment, i ruled out any fuses and wirings trouble. Assessing the situation, my last option is to drill for a small access hole on the trim from the inside. So i can reach for that doorlock lever internally. Anyway i didn't go for it. Instead i went back to that handle and tried again. I think i have tripled my force and bang! It opened. What i found out is the bottom portion of the rubber sealing sticking. If you wont be as lucky as i am, please bring your truck to an accurate driller who is familiar with this trouble. We dont want many holes on ur trim, right. A small one can be tolerated. goodluck and have a nice day. : )

if you look at the latching mechanism on the bottom of the door, you will see two metal teeth. If they are close together, you will have to have somone hold the handle like they were opening the door and use a screwdriver to seperate or open the teeth. Then you shold be able to close the door. Hope this helps :)
