Comfort Access not working on one door only...

is there a fix or a reset for this? Or a trip to the dealer?

All of the doors work fine except for the driver's door and only for locking purposes. It still unlocks when I open the door but it won't lock when I press down on the handle, but the other doors work fine.

My warranty is up next month (I did get an extended one from Mercury of course) and figured I'd better get things done asap.

Thanks

It sounds like your driver door handle went bad, I'd take it in. I remember some posts either here or on the 5 series where people had individual door handles just go out and needed replacement (especially while you're still under warranty), V/r, Tim

Thanks, that's what I kind of figured. At least I'm under warranty until next month, then the car will just explode...

I think this happened to both the doors on "General Lee" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Lee_(car)

I had my passenger door handle replaced last year because it went bad. My dealer replaced the driver side as well.

Same thing happened to me on my E66, fortunately it was covered @ the time. I believe it would've cost me over $700 out of warranty...

I had my handle go bad- its the antenna in the handle, they have to replace the handle, do it under warranty, it cost me $600!!

Please be careful about your battery dying when you have a bad door handle. Often the door handle becomes faulty and starts draining the car's battery when the car is off. One of my got burning hot when is was faulty and was draining my battery.

How do you know it's not working? Does it show a fault in the system?

For example, should I be testing all my 4 door handles routinely? Is it 1 antenna per door, or are there less than 5 (assuming one for the trunk)?
