Keyless entry stopped working gradually. Key Fobs are OK and fresh batteries. Reprogrammed them when had it working sporatically. Now nothing. Suspect reciever, but can't locate it!
My keyless entry stopped working. The remotes have fresh batteries and I've already tried the reprogramming list or opening/closing etc. Ideas?
Keyless entry remote unlocks the doors but it will not lock the doors.
Remote keyless entry stopped working for no reason. Key fob batteries and transmitter tested and worked fine. Problem with the receiver, unable to locate it. Mechanics will not invest the time to locate or repair problem.

2012 Toyota 4Runner 45,000 mi,
Had a 1998 4 Runner no problems bought an 2005 and at 90,000 door locks and A/C started messing up. Traded in for 2012 4 Runner because I thought it was just my 2005 4 Runner. Now 2012 door problems again at 45,000 both front doors and now at 55,000 one back door. What is funny is they act like it is a problem that they don't know about, but what I have read online this problem is been going on for along time. I didn't want this 4 Runner my wife did,it will be my last Toyota.

One remote will unlock the door only but, neither remotes will lock the door. When all doors are locked the red alarm indicator light on the dash is solid red and does not flash to indicate that it is armed.
