Two, the rubber boot dries out and breaks allowing water into the actuator. Needs a good clean out and ideally, a new boot. Where do you get those? Got me. Maybe others know where to get new actuators. I still have a spare or two from when the yards were full of these things.

Like kyote, I also recommend keyless entry, because the wiring to the button and key switch falls apart, and because beep-beep. They are inexpensive and easy to add http://cleanflametrap.com/keyless3.html

That would make the wife happy, lol. She's upset it doesn't have keyless entry. lol
