    I recently bought my first toyota tacoma (2006 base model, double cab, manuel 6 speed, power everything, and 4x4) and am loving it so far except for one issue, my door locks. All 4 door locks as well as the remote just stopped working one day then the next were fine. They lasted for 4 days working great then it happened again. Its been a week now and I dont think they will be making a come back. I've checked the fuses under the dash and under the hood and they are both good. Also replaced the batteries in my keyless remote. I hear alot of talk about the actuators going out but don't think it could happen to all 4 at once.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    -Thanks

    Check to make sure all your doors are fully closed. I pulled that one today... I could unlock the truck but could not lock it. Walked around and found one door not closed all the way.

    Do the lock/unlock switches in the doors work? The way you worded you OP, left this unclear.

    Had that happen to my truck after the dealer had it for an alignment. Either key fob wouldn't work. Can't remember if I just changed the batteries or if they just started to work again.

    Swap relays. It's probably going bad.

    So just to clarify, the don't unlock, OR lock at all correct? If the truck senses it has a door open, they will only unlock.

    Reviving an old thread - wondering what your solution was?

    I'm all ears! It is presently my problem ; neither remote is consistent, despite battery changes. Activation with either door lock button is perfect, as is external activation with the key. Could it be the "radio" receiver?
