2001 Forester is the vehicle. I knew that system was a mistake.
It started yesterday. The central locking system is locking the doors on its own. I came out at lunch, and had to unlock with the key. The same after lunch. The same at the end of the day. When I drove home, it had locked me in, and it wouldn't let me out! It kept locking the door as soon as I opened it, or else it wouldn't unlock at all. As I was sitting ther playing with it and trying to figure it out, I could hear it trying to lock spontaneously, click-click-click...It seemed to have stopped when I got out.
This morning, it was locked again. And once I got in, the battery was too flat to start the engine, probably because this thing was running all night.
1. What is probably wrong with it?
2. How can I fix it?
3. Can I just pull the fuse to get it going? What else do I lose if I pull the fuse?
4. Maybe it would be better to unplug it. Where can I unplug it? IN the door or is there somewhere under the dash that will be easier to access?
I need the car to get to Prince George on Sunday, 400 miles or so, and will be there far from home and tools for a week or 2, so I need a quick fix to get me going.
