I have a 2008 XLR. There is a problem with the electronic door locks, but only sometimes. I put the car in park and press the button and only about half the time will it open the door. When it decides no, I have to bring the drivers window down and manually use the outside release.
Anyone have a similar issue and a solution for the problem?
I have a 2007 XLR and a couple of years ago I had some door lock issues. I would squeeze the door lock pad and more times than not, the door lock would not fully release. It made me have to push the door closed and try again....sometimes several times before being successful. In the end what solved the problem was replacing the door pad switch module on the inside door jam. This completely solved the problem. No issues since. The switch modules are readily available and are under $50. They are a 10 minutes job to complete. You could try removing the module and cleaning the contacts 9 (carefully) with fine steel wool and electronic contact cleaner. That might work. You have a 10 year old switch. I would have the replacement on hand just in case cleaning does not work.
