Front door will not lock with key fob

Asked by Jun 11, 2017 at 09:49 PM about the 2013 Lexus RX 350 FWD

Question type: General

Other doors will lock and unlock normally.  No audible beep or lights flashing
when locking.  Will double beep and lights flash with unlocking.  Mirrors retract
normally with locking.  Changed battery with same results.  Is this an actuator
issue?  Does this have to be repaired at the Lexus dealership or can local
Toyota dealership fix it.

Could be a bad actuator or wiring issue. Ask your Toyota dealership if they will work on it. Pretty sure it won't be warranty work at the Toyota place.

If the locks will lock & unlock using the buttons on the driver side door, that probably eliminates a door lock actuator as being the culprit -- if that were the case, you'd have one (or more) locks not working and the car would beep 4 times when you tried to lock it. The fob may have to be "synched" back with your vehicle and I believe only a dealer can help you with that.
