Question Door (electric) locks will unlock but not lock?

2005 Camry - Doors will unlock with console switches and remote, but will not lock with either.
This happened once before (month ago)and "went away" and has now reoccurred.
Check power fuses 1 & 2 they are "OK"
Cycled all four door switches and they did not seem sticky.
Any ideas.

First try reprogramming the locks. An internet search on this to will find links such as below which you can try.

The door lock system had issues with a relay in a fuse box which can cause all kinds of strange lock/unlock activity.

Thanks Joey,
Right now the locks are working "OK", I guess that I will wait until they don't before I do anything? does that seem right?
The only thing that has changed is that the weather has gotten cooler? It will get hot here again soon.
Thanks for the help!

Default 2005 will not lock when temperature is warm

2005 Camry LE will not lock when warm weather. I have had the problem of not locking when temperature is warmer for two years. As soon as the temperature turns to about 65 F, or less, I can Remote lock or main door lock.
Otherwise, most of the year in TX, doors will not lock from either the Remote nor from the main driver side.

Obviously, some relay is stuck either close or open. And the temperature affects electrical current.

Any thoughts?

Default Mine Camry does the same thing

I have a 2012 and when it's really hot outside, some of the doors will not lock with the keyless remote. Once the temp cools down later in the day, they all work fine.
