    06 sts front door handles only work when it rains

    my front door handles work fine as long as its raining or for a short time after a wash, i know there are micro switches to change out but i would think the doors wouldnt work at all if they were bad any suggestions or just change out the witches, thx

    I am having the same issues, driver door only works when it's wet, passenger door works fine. I plan on changing out the micro switches as soon as it annoys me enough to bite the bullet and buy them.

    Mines did the opposite. When I would wash the car or when it rained mine stopped working. Until one day it just stopped all together

    Sure enough, washed her today and the driver door has been working fine all day. Guess I'll just wash it more often, probably cheaper than replacing the micro switches
