I have a 2005 Toyota Tacoma. The fob key works but locks only 3 doors (passenger and 2 back doors) but not the driver side door. Any idea on the problem?

This may be due to a bad actuator lock on the driver door , if you lock the doors using the inside door button and you get the same doors locking without the driver door locking then this is the actuator lock thats bad, this is a motor that controls the lock linkage, most newwer cars and trucks when this part goes bad the latch needs to be replaced as the lock motor is all part of the latch, the door panel would have to e removed and the latch replaced, good day.

It could be the power door lock motor on that door or the lock motor is not getting the signal from the module.some times the wires that run between the car body and the door break and need repairing.these are covered by a rubber tube that is fastened one end to the body the other to the door,you can see it with the door open.

Check for a bad switch in the door.
Water leaking from the rag top-door seal joint often drains into the switch, causing a short or bad contact eventually.

Program your factory keyless entry functions
For 2001+ Tacomas equipped with a factory alarm or keyless entrymag-glass_10x10.gif, here are some programming options that allow you to adjust the way your locks work.
The first programming option allows you to set the entry unlock to: (A) unlock the driver door with one push, and the remaining doors with a second push OR (B) unlock all of the doors with a single push.
  • Open the driver's door. Remove the key from the ignition switch.
  • (Complete these steps within 40 seconds)
    1. Insert the key into and remove it from the ignition switch 2 times.
      (IN - OUT - IN - OUT)
    2. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
      (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)
    3. Insert the key into and remove it from the ignition switch 1 time.
      (IN - OUT)
    4. Close, then open the driver's door 2 times.
      (SHUT - OPEN - SHUT - OPEN)
    5. Insert the key into the ignition switch and leave it in.
    6. Close the driver's door.
    7. Turn the key from LOCK to ON 4 times, ending at LOCK
      (LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK - ON - LOCK)
    8. Wait for the locks to stop, then remove the key from the ignition switch.
  • On the key fob, press and release both LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the same time.
    1. [For all doors unlock] press and release the UNLOCK button.
    2. [For driver door unlock] press and release the LOCK button.
  • Open the driver's door. The programming is complete. If programming did not occur, start over.
