Remote locking not working

Just got back from the dealership after getting the timing belt, water pump and other belts replaced. I told them to check out my remote locking as it works with the key and the door button but not the key fob. They tell me its the door actuators and its about $1000 for both front doors to get done...... Can this be correct? Also the rear window does not go down with the remote, if it is just the actuators surely the rear window would still go down with the remote. Any ideas?

I find it hard to believe all those actuators died at once .
I'd go elsewhere for a 2nd opinion.

Here are the instructions for programming the 99-02 4Runner Keyless Entry factory remotes:

1. Start with the following conditions: you are in the vehicle

a. Key is out of the ignition
b. Driver's door is open ( all other doors are closed)
c. Driver door is unlocked (other door locks don't matter)

2. Insert the key into the ignition (don't turn it) and pull it out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:

a. Cycle the power locks 5 times. Use an even pace and try
to go relatively fast.

b. Close, then open the drivers door.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:

a. Cycle the power locks 5 times (same as before).
b. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF.
c. Turn the ignition to ON then back to OFF.
d. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should cycle (automatically)
indicating successful entry into programming mode. Return to step 1
if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds:

a. Press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter
simultaneously for 1 second.

b. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds.
Within 3 seconds, the door locks should cycle ( LOCK then
UNLOCK) once-- indicating successful programming. If
the door locks don't cycle, or cycle twice. Repeat steps
6a and 6b--this remote has not been accepted.

c. Repeat steps 6a and 6b for EACH transmitter that will
operate the vehicle. Including any old transmitters.

7. Close the driver door.

I hope this helps.

I had previously tried to reprogram the remotes a while ago with no success. Well , I tried again reprogramming my key fobs to the truck, I can now lock the doors using the keyfob but they will not unlock with the keyfob, any suggestions for troubleshooting? They still lock and unlock with no problems using the switch on the drivers door.

TIA

Well, eventually I decided to replace the motors in the door actuators. Ordered the motors from Ebay for $20, spent about 2 hours removing and replacing the motors in the actuators and refitting them. Everything works great. Door locks work perfectly with the remote. Saved about $980 over the dealer price.
