Help! Door won't close/latch in cold temps and/or key won't unlock door in cold temps
1997 318IS 2 door Coupe with central locking system
Just wondering if anyone has door opening and closing problems in the cold.
Main problems in the cold (0 degrees and below):
1. Drivers side door lock doesn't turn to unlock when I put the key in (lock de-icer is not the problem). So i open the passenger door and the central locking system unlocks my driver door. Somebody told me it's the actuator on the drivers side..
2. Sometimes after the door is unlocked then I open it, it wont close. Meaning the latch doesn't close so I've had to drive home with one arm holding the door closed and the other steering.
3. Once in a while as well, after opening the door, getting out of the car and trying to close the door again, the latch will be in the wrong position somehow (I think in the closed position) and will bang off of the finger attached to the pillar where it's supposed to latch.
Is this all actuator related? If not, what the heck else can it be?
