Elecitrical issue (key fob & door locks)
I have a 2006 Ridgeline RTL. One day, everything is fine. Next day, my wife locks our 3 month old boy in the car (thankfully the A/C was running and he slept thru the entire ordeal).
Here's what happens. Key fob now only unlocks the driver's door (does not unlock pass. doors nor does it roll down the windows when the unlock button is held for the 2nd time). I can hear the other doors cycle but they don't unlock. If I get in, and start the truck, then close the driver's door...the driver's door lock with cycle thru the unlock position twice, and then lock (this is how all the doors locked on my wife the other day). Also, if the truck is running and I hit the unlock button on the driver's door...the driver's door will cycle thru unlock twice and then lock. The lock/unlock button inside of the truck works and will lock and unlock all of the doors.
Obviously there is an issue. I'm not sure if it has to do with the key fob or the antenna. (I do not have the auto door lock feature set). I have not checked any fuses. I'm guessing some moisture got in some place.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to take it to the dealer and would like to try and solve the problem myself.
