Question about 2001 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Drivers door doesn`t unlock when the weathers cold or it`s raining

I unlock the car using the key fob but the drivers door won`t unlock,the drivers door console has no power going to it(the other door consoles work though) and the dashboard temp. gauge shows 2 dashes(- -)instead of the temp(i cannot unlock the door using the key as the deadlock won`t allow me to).I will start the car and after 10-20mins(depending on how cold it is)the temp gauge will suddenly show the temp.and simultaneously the drivers door console will start working(i see it light up)and then i can unlock the drivers door by pressing the lock/unlock button on it.The colder or damper the weather,the longer it takes to activate.My A/C motor needs replacing but the mechanic disconnected it and the A/C system whilst he waits for a replcement motor,would this be affecting/causing the problem?

Key won t unlock doors


lost the other fob>>> ?????
never own a car with 1 fob.
and if one fob messes up, the battery inside is dead. (or worse)
if just lock fails the button is bad, if one fob false, and they do
its just cheezy switch. (can be cleaned)
use the other FOB, if it fails, post.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

Won't open my door when I press unlock, key won't open door either


can you manually unlock the lock and open the door?? Is it more than one door or just one specific door? If its just one door, yourcactuator inside the door may be bad or you have a wire issue. If its all the doors, more than likely you blew a fuse or a relay(id say fuse)

2006 sebring 4 cyl - in cold weather security alarm goes off whether i have it left unlocked - use key to unlock or fob - every morning it goes off - yesterday - when i was leaving work - went to unlock...


I know a quick fix to get it started but you might think i'm crazy to do this:

My 2003 Dodge ram van 1500 does the same thing. I put a small heater on the driver's side floor blowing the hot air toward the door.
I plug in the heater when I get home from workand let it run all night.
The computer for the alarm is under a kick plate near the driver's door next to the driver's seat on the left side. Once it warms up the alarm; it will shut off the alarm and you can start the motor.
