My hearing is bad, so I don't hear the horn until I open the door. My wife hears the horn, but she doesn't remember this source from one occasion to another.
My auto mechanic found a Nissan document that explains how some part about 6-inches long inside each of the 4 doors and involved with the door lock is sometimes found to get wet after the car is old, and this causes problems. Nissan changed to a better replacement, but without opening up every door he cannot tell which doors have the old problematic part or the newer replacement.
If I KNEW FOR SURE that this is the problem, I would pay him to replace these parts --- there are other strange things that happen, perhaps from the same cause. (For example, in warm weather & I am driving slowly, sometimes all 4 door locks close of their own initiative, usually while I am using the foot brake.)
He tells me he would have to open up all 4 doors.
I don't want to pay him to take each door apart and discover that the answer might be something different, which might be very expensive to replace.
have the same problem?
