CHILD SAFTEY LOCK

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry LE V6 and one of the rear passenger doors will not open from inside the car. I believe that the child safety switch on the door is not being set to allow it to open. Is there a way I can fix the child safety lock switch?

Do you
have the same problem?

After opening the door from the outside look by where the weather stripping is, there should be a switch there that you can change from child proofing to regular operation, most cars have them locatied on the same side as the striker bar.

I know where the switch is and have moved it to lock to unlock numerous times -- I still can not open the door from inside the cars. Is there a simple way to fix this problem without having to take the door apart?

Nope there's no shortcut to it-you need to open the panel and figure the locking mechanism to unlock it. There's is no reset to the child safety lock.
