She hates me

She is burning out bulbs in the tail lights (both sides) like its going out of style. Central locking is acting with a mind of its own. Unlocking car on driver side with just the key results in no unlock on the other door, no lights upon door open, and once i start the car, the locks won't unlock, and the light on the central locking button will remain illiminated. What is going on here!? Is my car taking on a mind of its own? Help!

Take it to a dealership and have them check the electrical system.

There must be an electrical force field around the area, because I'm in Jacksonville and mine has been doing some weird things as well. Are you sure you guys aren't testing anything up there?

I think it is because you treat your car as a "she." She is acting accordingly,
"Just like a woman!"

Sorry ladies!

Funny thing is, I am in jacksonville, down at my girlfriends place for the holidays.

Bruce, you're right, it's like having a second girlfriend/wife. Take it for granted and it will get the attention of you and your wallet in the most unpleasant way. Haha.

Bosch, the new Prince of Darkness.
I heard the Krauts sent a bunch of engineers to England to apprentice at Lucas.
Apparently we are now seeing the fruit of that effort.

Same happened to me...

I had this happen to me, except for the bulb burning, and I had checked the fuses and they were ok. So I took it to the garage and they found it was the alarm, which has it's own fuse, that was blown. Sorry, but they didn't tell me exactly where this fuse was, but I understood that it was on (or near) the alarm. By the way, did your windows stop working also? That happened to me also and it's a sure deal if it has happened to you.

That is so funny and so true!

Lucas sucks!

I do have a non-factory alarm that doesn't work installed from the previous owner, perhaps removing if from the electrical circuit will solve this problem. Does anyone have detail electrical diagrams? If so you can email them to me. Thanks.
