94 Camry door lock / unlock issue, PLEASE

My car is 94 Camry V6 LE, with power lock and power window. It is kind of weird that:

1. I can unlock the driver side door from outside, but can NOT lock it.

2. I can lock the passenger side door from outside, but can NOT unlock it.

3. I can both lock and unlock the doors inside the car using power door switch.

When I tried to lock doors through driver side door or unlock doors through passenger side door from outside, the key seems stuck inside the key hole. Any idea what is wrong?

Thanks in advance!

i am presuming that you are talking about lock/unlock using key only? the camry DOES have a keyless entry pad right? is this car new to YOU on have you had it a while? try resetting the lock/unlock code and see if that helps. a little lubricant in the key lock may help. never heard of this PARTICULAR kind of problem before. good luck. someone will respond shortly with a better answer. let us know how it goes!

That is a wierd one. I don't think that Camry will have a keypad, ours didn't. I don't know if any of those functions go through a computer or not, but as a long shot you might try disconnecting & reconnecting the battery. Maybe just a worn key? Have you tried a different key?

Yes, I was talking about lock / unlock the door using key. I've been driving this car for 5 years, and am pretty sure it worked before. But some day, for some how, it didn't. This car doesn't have a keyless entry pad, or remote control.

Since I can unlock the driver side door from outside, and lock all doors before I leave the car, I didn't pay much attention to it before. Now I found this forum, and am thinking I might not be the first person having such kind of issue.

Thanks,

Do you have another key,if so try it. The key may be old and not working lock properly.Does the locks make any noise when worked with the key?
