Default 2002 Camry bad starting motor

My 2002 Camry wouldn"t start. i thought it could be a problem with the smart
key or remote keeping the engine immobilized because the auto door lock
feature would not work when I walked away from the car. Now I'm told I need a
new starting motor. How doe a bad starting motor also stop the auto door lock
from working? Could it be something simpler? Thanks.

In most cases this is caused by a discharged battery.

The battery is not discharged.

Are you *sure* it's not discharged?

Sure, the voltage might read 12V while not under a load, but once you
put a load on it, if the voltage drops significantly, then you have a
discharged battery...

Well, take it to a second mechanic and see what they say...

I bet a bad battery or corrosion on the terminals. Corrosion causing
poor voltage cant be seen you need to remove the cable and clean the
wire terminal and battery terminal. 4 years can be common for a battery
to go bad, ive had them go bad in 6 months. The starters last over
100000m so I dought the starter. Check battery and charge system, My
shops always do it free, because they sell you the battery. Sounds like
a hack is diagnosing the car.

You're right on this. A weak or shorted cell can do this as well.
