    anybody have problems with their power locks? My driver and passenger side will not lock by the door or key fob, but will open from the key fob. Confused.

    trouble shooting 101 amigo - start with the simple stuff, check the fuses first then work down the line from there.

    I have same issue. Suddenly none of the electronic locking options (fob, door buttons, drivers exterior door handle) work. The only thing that does work is the fob UNlocking option. I've been trying to narrow down which fuses to check as I don't want to pull any that might reset any of my electronics. On the interior fuse box cover, I have descriptions for: SFT LOCK-ACC, DOOR R/L, DOOR F/R, DOOR F/L. Any thoughts on which one is the likely culprit (or a different one I didn't mention)? Thinking this would still be under warranty, but prefer to not hassle with a visit to the dealership. :)

    Id just say take it to the dealer, tbh. Take advantage of the warranty while you have it

    Are you saying there is a fuse for lock and another for unlock?

    Doesnt seem logical to me.

    is it just that one door? (all the others function properly?)

    Does the lock end up locking if you push the lock button on the door quickly and repetitively?

    More than likely your issue is a door lock actuator motor. A 6 dollar part on ebay for the little electric motor that ends up slowly failing and ends up in the situation you describe. My passenger rear door went out via the same demise.

    Like stated 6 dollar part on ebay, you need a "20mm long flat shaft motor"

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mabuchi-Ni...hash=item19e3ec87fb:m:mETANqFNBgmy6A7-sXogfPg

    Its kind of a bitch to get to the door lock actuator itself, but follow a youtube video and go slow and its maybe an hour n a half job and will save you TONS of money.

    The drivers door on mine started doing this a few months ago. It’s the actuator motor that’s crapped out. Eventually I’ll get tired of locking the truck manually and fix it. There are videos on YouTube explains how to do it. Thanks for the link to the correct motors on eBay.

    None of my doors are locking. I imagine it's just one fuse, just not sure which one when I look at them.

    Got it back from dealer yesterday. Blown 20 amp door lock fuse caused by short in wire harness for B pillar. Warranty covered it and they added foam to both harness per Toyota.

    @TraverseFar - which specific fuse was blown? Toyota dealer is trying to blame this issue on my reverse cam anytime switch, but I’d like to have them look into the B pillar short.

    Thanks.
