Highlander 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When one person exits the vehicle and locks their door the second person is stuck. All electric locks are instantly disabled. The only way to exit is to use the manual lock button which will set off the alarm 30 seconds after. The passenger inside has to manually unlock the door, and set off the alarm. The only way to prevent, is to turn the ignition on before exiting, but isn't possible for most passengers. Ts scc
