Just recently the driver's door lock has been slow in going up when
unlocking the car with the remote control. Once it even failed to go
up when it got real cold outside. Once the temperatures warmed up
again, all was fine. I'm guessing it's wearing out or a diaphram is
Then just the other day the remote door lock/unlock,trunk lock, and
reverse poles on back fender quit completely. The light goes green
and red but no reaction on any of the locks. Nor does the dash
mounted switch do anything now either (used to work fine).
Locking and unlocking with the key is really no big deal but then the
car wouldn't start. I'm assuming it's the anti-theft device doing its
job. Sometimes by closing the door and clicking on the remote is
enough to let it start on the next attempt but on several occasions it
wouldn't until I put it into neutral when it did start!
I never had to shift to neutral to start the car and was wondering if
fixing the vacuum pump or whatever might be wrong with the locking
system would solve the starting issue. One mechanic said that it is
probably a harness issue.
Thanks for any feedback,
