thats why i said if it doesnt work you dont pay lol must admit its odd i would check the relays myself possibly water has got in the engine bay fusebox or check under the passenger carpet for damp if the pollen filters leaked it will get to the interior fuse box just a stab in the dark

to be honest mate i think its a job for an auto electrician ive never heard this before the fact it happens when warm suggests its the fuse box in the engine bay and the heat from the engine is drying it out

what about the interior light and the chime when you leave the lights on - do these work on opening the door?
