The Door Latch problem

I purchased my car new in February 1998. After 9 years I only have 43,000 miles on the car. I live in southern California so there is no extreme temperature changes which might have caused the door handle to be compromised, nor abuse as I see others are being told by service shops.   Read details...

The Latches/locks/linkage problem

At about 20,000 miles the srs light came on as well as the warning indicator that the passenger was not buckled up even though I could see they were. Also the key can be removed from column without the car in park.   Read details...
