When I have washed the car (with a wax finish), if it is covered in heavy rain drops or ice, mine do not work too well either - but a back-hand or wiping them clean first, usually works.Started today, drivers door handle lock sensor (triangle to lock the car) not working anymore. Passenger side works just fine! Issue just started today, it was working fine for two weeks since I've received the vehicle. No matter how I touch the triangle sensor door won't lock no matter what. Any lighter touch on the passenger side will lock the car just fine. Cleaned the whole handle and sensor twice no good. Really annoying! Anyone has ideas, suggestions, similar issues? This is not my first car with capacitive door handle lock sensor so let's eliminate operator error of the bat! Also no dirt, moisture or any type of residue in the handle. Does not matter if the FOB is outside or inside the pocket. Again any type of usage scenario on the passenger door works fine. Bad driver door sensor, software issue?
I guess the sensors are somewhat weak, a bit like the sensor in the back for the hatch.
