Default How to check your doors lock solenoid

Hi
I have a 2003 base PT Cruiser. When it rains the locks go up and down. After a day they usually stop, the last rain in Southern California the locks would not stop going up and down until the battery was dead. I read on a post that the solenoid can get moisture in them, causing this problem. I need to know how to check the solenoid to find which ones are bad in the doors.
Thank you,
Leroy

I don't think the problem is the solenoid, there 4 in your car & are independent of each other...it could be the RKEM (Remote Keyless Entry Module).

I would pull all 4 door panels & check the plug, mounting bolts & solenoid arm.
If you want to test them...pull one out at a time, use small test clips and attach 2 clips the the solenoid & 1 to the + side of battery & touch the other to the - side. The solenoid should move either in or out...reverse the + & - leads to test the other way.
