Door warning

Hi. 2016 toyota fortuner 2.8 gd 6 a/t. With all doors closed one doors shows on the display that it is still open. Cannot lock it with remote. Have to use manual key. While driving, doors will lock but warning stays that show one door is open. After a while it will sometimes go away but sometimes the warning stays. The warning and beep will go on and off several times while driving. Sometimes i drive a long while before the problem arises again. Had door sensor checked and seemed OK.


Had it checked by a dealer. He checked the knob sensor of the door and could not find a problem. Did some diagnostic test but also nothing. As long as the diagnostic machine was pluged in the door showed closed. He thaught it might be a earth problem somewhere. Never had this problem. Had my windscreen replaced recently.

Hi. The problem was solved. As mentioned in my initial message the windscreen was replaced prior to the problem. There was a leak on the windscreen as it was not fitted properly and water leaked in. Water leaked on the left hand side and ran down onto the wiring situated on the left below the glove compartment. Upon opening the covers we found that the wiring was wet and caused the electronics to malfunction. The wiring connections was dried with compressed air and the problem was solved. The windscreen was re-fitted and the problem did not occur ever since. I have photos if you need to see the location of the wiring.

Dash Showing Door Open Whilst Infact Door Is Closed

I need help with my 2017 Fortuner. When the ignition is off, the dash shows that the right passenger door is open. As a result, I am not able to lock the car using the remote. The moment I start the ignition, the dash reads perfect when I open or close the door.

The vehicle just had some full vallet on it.

Water got in somewhere, open the left side (passenger) panel next to the door, under the cubby hole and check for water.
Please also report to Toyota, service manager told me that they already found this on a couple of Fortuners.
They will log it and will be in the history if more problems arise.
