the hatch is still an electric latch though

Moving actually sounds like a great idea.

Problem is probably solved by now, and what I post may not apply to the original person posting. But ...

My Ď18 SR5 has key locks on the driverís door and rear liftgate. It donít hurt to occasionally use it, or lube it with graphite, to keep things working in case this situation occurs. Turning the key to roll down the rear window also unlocks all four doors (locking them when you roll up the window), though in a dead battery situation this wonít work to get you inside.

Why would the "Limited" not have a rear door that can be unlocked with a key?

That's the only way I can think to help you out. You need about 2 people to pull and hold the door (AMA will insert an inflatable device to achieve this goal) while one person inserts the rod or coat hanger or whatever to press the unlock button. Wait.. no battery, no power locks. umm, coat hanger and try to get the flipy locky thing? haha man, that's a tough spot to be in.
I agree, because I said the exact same thing EXCEPT you can grab and pull the hood latch with a long enough tool

Might be his has the optional ďSmart KeyĒ, or proximity key so you donít have to use the fob to enter the locked vehicle as long as the fob is in your pocket. The driver door handle senses the fob and your hand near the handle.

No models have a rear door that can be unlocked without power

Nope...my bad.

The 4R is my wifes. I've been under the hood many times for maint, but never bothered to notice the rear door has no key slot.

Bad idea Toyota, along with the missing transmission fluid dipstick.

My 2006 Honda CR-V I traded in on my Outback had no dipstick either. I guess it’s a trend. I don’t mind. I hated checking auto transmission levels. Mile long, bendy dipsticks and inconsistant readings on most of my cars ...

I seem to remember, that a few years back, there was a thread dealing with a broken hood release cable. Owner was in the same boat being unable to open hood. The fix was a tool made to trip the hood latch from the front. I bet the dealers have one.

What rock have you been living under? How did you miss the fact that not having a key is the greatest upgrade in the history of the automobile?!?! It's so awesome.....you don't have to...or maybe it's that you do get to.....well, I don't really know but they tell me it's the greatest.
