Default pls help

first of all thank you for all your previous help.


let me explain the situation. first of all my passenger side mirror broke off.
I didn't know there'* a hole behind the mirror.
next it rained and a lot of water got inside the passenger door where the hole is.
now my passenger side door is going crazy. the doors lock and unlock by itself.
the sunroof won't work. the car will react like the door is open when it'* actually closed. I'm sure its because the water leaked inside the door and sent my electrical connectors nuts. I know how to take the panel off the door. what do i need to look out for? thanks for everything!!!

First you need to pull any related fuses/breakers to prevent a possible fire. Someone will chime in on how to pull the panel.

Honestly...I'd doubt there'* a water issue in the door. There is a plastic shield and drain holes in the bottom of the door.

This sounds like a ground buss related issue. Depending on how much rain you had..start with pulling the door panel and looking for obviously wet items. Then check the ground buss.

The ground Buss is located under the carpeting in the front cabin. Not sure if its on the drivers/passenger side or both.

I think a lot of these models are the same. Mine, a 95 has one on both the drivers and passengers side. All you need is a little dirt or dampness on these and it will cause an electrical nightmare. I've been there before with this. Good luck!
