Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4
A few months ago, the front passenger door on my 97 Rav4 decided it didn't want to open anymore. About a week ago, the driver's side front door decided to quit too. Any ideas on what could cause both doors to lock and stay locked?
I've had the same problem.. I took it to a local mechanic. They (somehow) got access to the door's innerds, opened up the lock assembly, and found a lot of corrosion inside. They cleaned it, let it soak in oil overnight, and I was back in business. Until I had the same problem again the following year. Took it to the same place, they did the same thing again.

Jakenju, I would bet that the rod from the outer door handle is either off at the handle or the door latch on the pass door. Mayhap exact same problem on rear door.
