THANK YOU! I will check inside the driver door tomorrow.
I'm sorry if I misled you. Using the key to lock and unlock the doors does work, Unlocking the driver door with the key unlocks the driver door only (as I believe it should)and locking the driver door with the key locks all the doors, also as I expected.
It's just the remote and the security system that only works intermittently, especially when it is raining or humid.
I have reported this problem to multiple dealers (Dallas, Tulsa and Phoenix)and not one of them has looked at anything other than the remote (which they replaced multiple times) and also put in many new batteries, all to no avail.
I will admit I'm not too comfortable taking apart the car door but I will give it a try tomorrow and if not successful will have my son take a look when he is here on Wednesday. (I suspected I was not being taken seriously by the dealers' service reps because I am female and 62 years old, even though I have been a systems engineer for 40 years.
Again, thank you very much. I will get back if I don't find anything interesting in the driver door:-)
