One more question from the New Guy:) .

Again, during the cold winter months, the door locks act up on my '92 Pathfinder. Unlocking them with a key is difficult (locks feel stiff to turn) and the lock won't stay up. Seems as if the motor/solenoid wants to keep the door locked. Once it's open, it sometimes automatically locks when the door is slammed closed.

What's going on. I've only locked my keys in once because of this, but it is very annoying. I have a friend with a similar problem on his Pathfinder, so I figure there's a common problem.

Any suggestions?

Graphite lock grease. Its pretty common for water to get into your locks in the winter. Also if it has been lubed with anything else, ie wd-40, the lighter oil displaces the heavier and you end up with a lock less lubricated than before. You also need to lube the latch assembly in the door. If you happen to be inside the door panel anytime in the near future, you may look to see what is binding.

Yep. The lock linkage is binding up and needs to be lubed.
