ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

7/26/2017 - HOPE MILLS, NC
THE DOOR LOCKS MALFUNCTION WHEN THE TEMPERATURE IS ABOVE 80 DEGREES. WHEN THIS HAPPENS YOU MUST USE THE KEY TO UNLOCK OR LOCK THE DRIVER DOOR AND MANUALLY OPEN THE OTHER DOORS FROM THE INSIDE. THE REMOTE KEY SYSTEM IS NOT EFFECTIVE WHEN LOCKING OR UNLOCKING THE VEHICLE. I ASKED REED LALLIER DEALERSHIP IF THERE WAS A RECALL ON THE LOCKS BUT IT ONLY APPLIES TO THE "SS" MODEL AND NOT THE LT, EVEN THOUGH THE ISSUES ARE THE SAME. THE ISSUE STARTED LAST SUMMER AND HAS GOTTEN WORSE THIS YEAR, WHEN THE TEMPERATURE IS AROUND 75 AND BELOW THE LOCKS FUNCTION FINE. THE MALFUNCTION ONLY HAPPENS WHEN IT IS HOT OUTSIDE.
