I apologize in advance if the solution to this is the same as the recent post regarding the 1986 Lincoln.
My 1996 Honda Civic LX is a peach. I love my car, even if it has 190k miles on it. I do all of the regular maintenance as prescribed by my manual.
A couple of years ago, I noticed that when I locked my car using the inside drivers side switch, the motors (or whatever electronic motion creator) still actuated, even though the door was still locked. It would do this for any length of time. Fearing a dead battery at some point, I took it to the dealership I bought it from. I have no complaints about them, btw, they have always been good to me - but they couldn’t find any problems with it. My power windows weren’t working, around the same time, so I had them repair the connectors between the doors. The windows work fine - no problems.
So, a year passes. This locking problem is intermittent, and has never locked me out of the car, but I have noticed that the “all lock” feature, activated from outside by turning the master key in the drivers side door, no longer functions. I start to notice a trend in the pattern of this lock actuation - it happens when it rains, and when it seems to be particularly humid outside.
Finally, today. A beautiful day - sunny and warm, not nearly as hot as it has been. My locks start acting up the entire time I am driving home from school on the interstate.
So, I need some help. I have had the door panels in my car off, so I feel fairly confident that I could do a repair prescribed by the community. I hope you can give me some direction to go in.
Thank you for your time.
