    I own a 2016 Tacoma TRD Off-Road 4 door. Recently I have had an issue where I cannot lock or unlock my driver door using either the key fob OR keyless entry. All other doors unlock except my driver door. Additionally my truck beeps 5 times consecutively when attempting to unlock the doors. I also noticed that when I put my truck into drive, the same issue occurs where all doors automatically lock except my driver door. Doing some brief research I have concluded that this might either be an issue with a fuse or more likely, the door lock actuator has gone bad. Has anybody else experienced this issue with a 3rd gen and how did you fix the problem.

    Just got back from the dealership, They wanted $140 to diagnose the electrical.

    They found a bad door lock actuator. No surprise there.

    They want $660 parts and labor and they have to order the part.

    20,600 miles and 39 months I will just have to eat the cost.

    Not too happy about it but what can you do
