Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
It sounds like the striker to the latch is closed. You can open this on the door with your finger or screwdriver, or use your key to unlatch it by using the unlock mode or even your key fob to unlock all doors. If this procedure does not work, then your door latch is bad.
Ok, it appears that the latch is bad then.
Thanks again and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me later on for this issue.
