Power lock does not work on rear door

Power door lock mechanisms required periodic lubrication to work correctly. Without periodic lubrication, the mechanisms stick and, eventually, the lock solenoid will fail and require replacement. As a rule, the power lock mechanisms and power window regulators should be lubricated every two to three years.
Begin by removing the door panel and lubricating all points of the lock mechanism, including the solenoid plunger. If that does not correct the condition, look for broken parts and mechanical obstructions. Manually move the solenoid plunger to make sure that the mechanism is not seized. If the mechanism will not move, detach the mechanism from the actuator solenoid and see if the solenoid itself has seized.
Check that the lock solenoid is receiving 12V when the LOCK/UNLOCK button is actuated. If not, trace down the electrical fault. If the mechanism moves freely, and there is voltage at the connector when the switch is actuated, the solenoid has burned out and should be replaced.

Which one is best between UPVC and Aluminium Doors & Windows?

I will prefer UPVC windows and doors because it is much advantageous than aluminum. Some points are given below-

Aluminum windows and doors need painting over long periods of usage whether UPVC windows and doors requires no painting; only routine cleaning.

Durability under Extreme Weather
Aluminum windows and aluminium doors can start fading after sustained exposure to sun. Start looking ugly. But, UPVC windows and doors have UV resistant blend; do not fade under sustained exposure to sun.


Aluminum windows and aluminium doors can look cold and out of proportion whether UPVC windows and doors have elegant looks; enhances both; the exteriors and interiors of the building.

The sliding door on our 1996 Toyota Sienna is broken shut (it cannot be opened). The door button on the inside nor the handle on the outside can mechanically effect the door. We do not have automatic door...

It sounds like the cable/bar in the door is broken or stuck

1. you will need to remove the door lining to get at the problem

2. could also be the door lock stuck in the lock position (does the door feel like it locks or unlocks when you use the lock)

3. could be the handle cable/ bar

NOTE some vehicles have cables while others have bars play with everything while you have the guts exposed this should help to locate the problem if nothing is moving while you play with the lock or handle this could be the problem
NOTE If nothing seems to be missing or out of place it could simply need to be lubed at the point where the door locks to the frame

Okui 3530 toner sensor error

turn off eq - open and remove the drum with the color cartridge in locked position still in place - on the drum on the cartridge lock side you will find a small (1/4 ") rectangular "window"...with the catridge in locked position the window should be open so you can see the sensor...when the cartridge is unlocked the window should be with the cartridge locked, using a tiny pointed object (paper clip), gently move the panel up or down to the open position (mine moved up)....replace the drum with cartridge...make sure it is set properly...close up everything and turn eq back may have to do this two or three times to make sure the window stays open when the lock is engaged...but this is what the "tech"(salesman) did...good luck

N Reg Ford Escort Cabriolet, locking mechanism

By 'Black bar' do you mean the window guide? If so, this is usually held in place at the bottom by a bolt or screw &, once removed, the guide should pull out downwards. The window should be closed. Your latch might have a black, anti-theft cover on the inside of the door which will also need to be removed.
