    That's good for one door. 3 left. Although I haven't tried with the door buttons. I'll try it now and report back.

    Edit: tried it, but the truck keeps unlocking itself again any time you hit lock.

    Interesting, mine locks all doors with the key. Maybe because I changed my settings for when I push unlock on my key fob, one push unlocks all doors instead of just the drivers door. Factory has it set that you need to push unlock twice to unlock all doors.

    Based on what you said, I decided to give it a try. I almost never use the key fob to unlock the truck since the handle is just easier. (I have that set to unlock all doors). One push of the unlock button allows me to unlock just the driver's door. I can then start the truck and manually lock it and none of the other doors unlock. I have to manually unlock the door though as the key fob still won't unlock the truck.

    Dang. That is weird. I don’t have that at all.
    As soon as I unlock my Taco it shuts off. I can’t even get in the door.
    Still bizarre to me. I should be able to get into the truck and hit the start button to ensure the key is present. I could see the truck shutting off as soon as someone puts it in gear if no key fob is present. But simply opening the door or unlocking is odd. Undo wear on the starter. I wonder if there is a setting I can change somewhere...

    There is no setting you can change. It is done from the factory. Even installing an aftermarket remote start won't solve the issue.

    Tip #33 to change screen images does not work with the 2020's if anyone was wondering.

    Edit for clarity: meant the image that shows on your screen during start up and when the display is set to "OFF"

    The remote start issue with the PTS ignition was just pure laziness and a BS excuse from Toyota for the reasoning. My '19 CRV works exactly the way all others do it. To this day the fact that my $50K Taco can't do what a $20k cheaper vehicle does do just pisses me off.
