Archived from groups: alt>autos>toyota>camry (more info?)

A few months ago my power locks completly stopped working and all for doors
were in the lock position. It was almost impossible to get in the car since
I had to really apply force when turning the key only to lift the knob high
enough to open the door. Basically, 3 of 4 door lock knobs (all but one
rear passenger) were stuck in the lock position. I got took all the lock
motors out of the doors so that i'd at least be able to get in and out of my
car. Any ideas? Thanks

Can you move the solonoid arm in an out manually? If not
buy replacement ones off ebay <$5 each. Sometimes you can
force and unlock them but they usually freeze up again. If
they easily go in and out then use lubricant on the lock
mechanism and check rods for binding.

All the solenoid arms I took out did not move at all. I find it weird that
this happened to 3 of them at the same time. What do you mean by check rods
for binding? Thanks

Lubrication may be the answer

There was a recall for the power door locks - did you have yours fixed -
that happened maybe in 1990....

I think it was related to some locks always locking - and causing a fire in
some cases.

I don't know if it has been done since I am the third owner of the car. Do
you know where I can find out if it has been done or where I can get more
info on that recall? Thanks, Dom
