Dont know if i have mentioned this before..... it happened once last winter and its just done it again!.

The drivers external door handle didnt work (got passenger to open door from inside), started driving car and could hear a slow ticking noise from door!....possibly solenoid going on and off.....stopped noise by locking all doors. After a couple of hours everything works fine again.

It did it last time when it was very cold, this time it did it after car had been washed, so it may be water in the electrics.

Anybody else had this?

Might be worth taking the door panel off and squirting some WD40 around the solenoid and linkages.

Either that or a bit of Vaseline to stop corrosion on the electrics. If its the cold though I don't know what to recommend...dirty old grease on the linkages and dynamat cut carefully around the solenoid?
