Driver's door won't lock...

Driver's door won't lock using the key fob or the button on the door handle. Also stopped making beeping noise when locking.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Replaced it just a few months ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Lexus?

2008 IS 350

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have not tried anything as of yet but will try myself if I know what to try.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That should be it.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

So far this is looking like the faulty door lock actuator inside the door on the latch. Will the door power unlock?

Do you have a test light or volt meter?

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
