How many TSBs for Lockout?
My '03 (made in November) does the driver door lockout thing (and, no, I am not hitting the mechanical lock).
I can hear the door lock itself if I am standing near the vehicle. It does this if the vehicle has been started (whether running or not) and I have gotten out of the vehicle after that.
This is, of course, not the part where it locks the doors because you unlocked them but did not open a door.
It only locks the driver's door (and I always unlock all doors, and I always carry the fob outside the vehicle, with me, tied to my mittens).
They used a TSB for a Maxima problem. I told them (based on info posted here) that this would not solve the problem. They did it. The problem persisted.
Next service visit, they had TSB#2 (replace the actuator inside the door, leave grease everywhere and leave enough oily stuff that for 3 months, I could put more on the window every time I upped or downed the window).
Problem not solved.
Yesterday, they pulled out TSB#3 and it says to change a harness. They have ordered the harness.
I prefer this door problem to, say, an exploding transmission, or to driving a Ford.
