    odd door issue

    Hello all I've been having the all too common driver and passenger side door handles stop working. I know there are other threads about this and about switching out the micro switch however I have a strange symptom. The only time that both doors work is during and after its raining or has rained, or after a car wash. So the common denominator seem to be water, any one have any clue why this is happening? Thanks in advance

    Re: odd door issue

    do you mean when it's locked and trying to unlock the car and get in or from inside trying to get out ?
    because if it's the first case then that can be your keyless entry fob, battery can be low.

    caddyvirgin, Same thing happen on my driver door. It would open only when it had been wet, raining. Replaced the driver door micro switch. That has been almost two years ago. Danny

    Hello caddyvirgin,

    I apologize that you are experiencing this concern with your STS when it rains. Have you addressed this concern with your dealership as of yet? If you would like to discuss this situation more, please feel free to private message me. Thank you very much for your time, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
