winter issues

hey guys,

so, I'm finally having my first issue with my FiST.

1) this is the common one that it seems. Only today, first time, my hvac blower wasn't operating properly. The air seemed like it was blowing below the slowest setting. The temperature seemed about correct. This may be related to the blower freezing up or something. Although, I think I have the foam strips that is part of the fix for that...

2) This is the 3rd time it has happened. It seems to only happen when I get off work and it has been below 0 degrees F, if not below -10 degrees. When I press the lock/unlock button on the driver's side door handle, all but the driver door unlocks. Seemed very odd. Pressing the button again locks everything (no noise from driver's door). Pressing it again unlocks all but driver's door. Very odd.

so I guess Ill go visit my dealer on Monday and ask them to take a look. They probably wont be able to replicate the issues without keeping the girl overnight.

anyways, anyone else having similar issues or have any insight?

I have been having the door unlocking issue, too. I have no issue when opening it from the inside, via access through another door, but when pressing the unlock with the handle button and/or fob button I cannot open my driver-side door. This only happens when it has been in the single digits, or colder overnight and I want to gain access in the mornings. I have been hesitant with taking it to the dealer, as I know I cannot replicate it unless it is bitter cold and has been sitting outside all night. Also, I do not know what the problem is since the car opens like normal from the inside, but refuses from the outside.

Anyone know what the problem is, or how to explain it to the dealer to get it fixed? I would rather not give them the car overnight, just to have them tell me they can't replicate it.
