1991 Toyota Camry DX - Front Passenger Door Lock won't disengage

\015 I have a 91 Toyota Camry DX sedan that is "pre-owned", and the front passenger lock won't disengage (so I can't open the door). When you use the power locks, you can see the car trying to unlock the door, but the locking mechanism is stuck. Likewise the key's can't unlock the door and I can't pull up on the lock from inside the car. I've also tried putting pressure on the door so there's not as much tension when it tries to unlock, but no luck. I was able to get the door panel off a bit and there's no broken linkage and the electrical to the door appears go be fine... just a stuck lock down by where the latch holds the door shut. Having essentially a 3-door car has worked until now because I only use it to get myself to and from work. However we recently found out our main vehicle is in need of costly repairs and we can't afford that right now, so I'd really like to be able to use the car as a family car for a month or so until we can fix the other car. Any suggestions?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

On my 1995 Toyota Camry, the driver door will not unlock, even though all the other doors will. It doesn't matter whether I use the lock/unlock button on the inside of the door(s) (either front door), or turning the key in the outside lock (my Camry has automatic lock/unlock with the turn of the key in the door locks). I can use the key in the driver's door (remember, the door that won't unlock), and all the other doors will unlock, but the driver's door will not unlock. The door won't open, so

I have a 2003 Yukon Denali with the following problems: 1.) Passenger side front window will not go down. 2.) Passenger side front door lock will not work with driver side panel for the door locks. 3.) Passenger side front door mirror will not open or close with driver side door panel switch controls. 4.) Rear window liftgate and window will not unlock to open. 5.) The only door lock that works with the control switch is the driver door.


Without being there to test the switch, I would suspect that you either have a bad master switch, or you have a broken wire or two in the door jamb. You can look at the wires in the door jamb by pulling back the rubber boot around the wires. Someti ... 2003 GMC Yukon Denali
