Having problems together with your Toyota Venza’s power door locks? Don’t deal with this hassle any longer. Here is a handy guide to diagnose the problem.
Toyota Venza Door Lock Failure Diagnosis Guide
Power door locks not working properly on your Venza? Here is a guide that will help you fix them.
It is important to properly troubleshoot the problem, before you begin to operate on your power door locks. Diving in and tearing apart every door panel when it is only a simple dead battery in the remote is not a good outcome.
All Doors/Many Doors
If all your doors aren’t working or in case you have many doors that won’t work, you could have a big problem on your hands. First, check the power door lock button in the door. If this works, then check the key fob. Bring your Venza to a Toyota certified mechanic if that doesn’t work and also the key fob doesn’t either. Odds are you will have a blown fuse or a much bigger electrical issue.
Single Door Won’t Work
If one door won’t lock or unlock, it is one of the door actuator motor or something that is is off track. Often times, you may hear a buzzing sound for a while until the actuator fails. Here is a typical fix:
Order an OEM replacement part from a Toyota dealership like parts.olathetoyota.com.
By locating the screws in the arm rest as well as on the door itself, remove the door panel.
Whilst you carefully pull the door panel off, try to find and unhook an electrical connection that connects the door locks to the locking mechanism.
Peel back the plastic shroud to expose the locking mechanism.
Locate the actuator by comparing the pieces in your replacement part and then swap them out.
Carefully placed the door together again.
Key Fob/Remote Lock Fails
If your key fob doesn’t unlock the doors any further, check the battery inside of it. This is easily done by finding where the pieces adjoin the other. Pop from the back and you will find the battery.
If none of these steps fixed your trouble, then it is a chance to take your Venza to your Toyota certified mechanic, lastly. While power door locks aren’t necessary to driving your car or truck, they are a nuisance.
