I would have to guess water has entered the electrical system, most likely the door locks and the moisture is conducting electricity/causing a short. When things dry out the systems may work normally again but this needs to be investigated as we are approaching fall.
thank you so much for info.
We were thinking the same thing but have no technical expertise.
It make s sense though,so i may hold off on the service.
Thank you SO much!
The locks are now not acting up!
