Re: Unable to lock/unlock doors with key or remote
In answer to your question nothing had been replaced or repaired prior to the problem.
Batteries in all the remotes or the car have been renewed. Problem still exists.
Removal and replacement of the fuse 25 resetting the ignition module. Starting the engine and moving the car to a different location the locking system operated normally but on returning to my home the system failed.
My wife returned home later and her car a different make and model would not lock.
I have since turned off my broadband wireless network system and holding the lock button for approx 15 seconds the lock operated.
I will post findings after further trails

Check to see if your central locking still works on all doors and that you can also operate the driver's door central lock motor. This can sometimes be an issue with the door lock motors themselves and not necessarily the key.
"KEY FOB PROGRAMMING
The Central Door locking is controlled by the Multi-Remote Control system which controls
the door locking, door super locking and hazard reminder. When the doors are locked and
unlocked the unit flashes the hazard lights once for lock and twice for unlock.
A maximum of four remote controls are allowed to be programmed.
Ensure all the doors have been unlocked, either by using a good transponder key or remote
control plip key.
1. Turn the ignition switch from Position 0 to ON 6 times within 10 seconds.
2. Then turn ignition switch to OFF position. Leave key in ignition switch.
3. After 2 seconds, the system will enter programming mode and will flash the warning
4. Press and HOLD the unlock button on the Plip.
5. While pressing the unlock button, press the lock button 3 times.
6. Release the unlock button.
7. The warning lights will flash once to indicate successful programming.
8. Repeat procedure 4 to 7 for up to 4 plip key?s.
9. When completed turn ignition ON, and the warning lights will flash 2 times.
10. Remove key, and check all plip key?s for operation.
NOTE : The programming mode will stop when either the ignition is switch ON, 4 plip keys
have been programmed or no input signal either from the switch or plip keys has been received
for 120 seconds."
you are doing it right the key should be in ignition at position 2 for about 5 seconds no more than 10 removed hold unlock slowly press unlock 3 times if a door lock actuator or even the fuel door lock actuator is malfunctioning it will not work check these with driver door lock cylinder (fuel door lock does not function with central locking button) all doors should be in same locking position to perform this proceedure first try locked then unlocked hope ive been a help
unlock with key and hold key over for 30 secs(windows may go down)then lock with key and hold over for 30 secs(windows may go up)then press remote unlock button and hold for 30 secs,you have just reset system...the closer you have to get to the car for the remote to work the lower the battery power.sensor on top of dash(little black dimple)rarely,if at all, goes wrong.....
Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.
You must reset your remote control in order for the lock/unlock to work properly.
To reset remote you would: 1)Insert Key in Ignition Turn to Position 1(Don't Start the Engine) for about 5 seconds 2)Turn Key Off and HOLD the LOCK button on Remote while pressing the UNLOCK 3 TIMES 3)Release both lock and unlock buttons you are holding 4)All doors should automatically unlock
If your car has an alarm with a separate remote, it is a separate system and it is probably self-arming. When you lock the doors with the key central lock, the alarm gets armed by the RAV4 being OFF and the door locking action. When you unlock the doors with the key, the alarm is still armed because the key is not comunicating with the alarm just the cars factory keyless system.
