As above, and works for all toyotas of a certain age, if it auto-locks when you put the car in gear, you can disable this if you wish - here's what to do:
Put the key in the ignition, turn it to the on position. Open the driver's door and remove the key (keep door open). Put the key in and out 4 times (in/ out only without any turning of the key) with the key taken out at the end. Hit the drivers side unlock button 5 times. Wait at least ten seconds and shut the driver's door. Away you go. If the car battery is ever disconnected it will reset this function, so you would have to repeat the above sequence once if this ever happens to disable the auto locking once again - or to put it back on, just disconnect the car battery for 10 minutes - remember to get the radio code before taking the battery off for any reason!
Hi, Do you have auto locking hubs on the front wheels, or manual locking hubs? If you have auto locking hubs chances are they are not engaging properly and will need to be removed and spline sets checked for broken teeth on locking hub and locking shaft. If you have manual locking hubs then check that they are firm when turning to engage them in the lock position.If they are light when engaging them to the lock position then they my have broken/worn out the locking hub and spline. Also check that the engaging spring inside the hub has enough tension to engage the hubs they may be broken. If the hub are all ok then you have a problem in the transfer box, where the 4WD lever is not meshing the transfer box properly. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.
It may be failing contacts in your remote; these are normally little carbon buttons that can either get fouled with contaminents or wear out if made too thin.
You may have to replace the remote to regain normal function.
If you are unable to turn the steering wheel then you have engaged your anti theft system. To dis-engage, depress the brake fully, turn the wheel all the way in the direction that it gives, and apply pressure to the key and it should dis-engage the anti theft system. If you can turn the wheel, than try the post above.
