    My 2000 SR5 V6 4Runner's rear hatch will not lock or latch using the remote or side door's key. Works fine with rear hatch key. Can't find any wire diagrams for this, if anyone has a copy, I would appreciate it. :lalala:

    Id test out the powered lock device. Have it open a try to cycle the lock to see if it even moves.

    You can go one step further to with the back window UP, take off the back panel(Should be just a few screws) and you can see all the inner workings.

    Great idea. I hope Dirk will send me a diagram, so I can do those tests.
