[DMCForum] Original locking module: Really that bad?

Everyone seems to think the original door lock module is terrible and
will lock you in the car / destroy the solenoids / drain the battery.
My module didn't work correctly when I bought the car, turned out the
driver's lock solenoid was shot & shorting the entire circuit. I
rewound the solenoids, reconnected the lock module, and it all works
great now.

For the fun of it I took the lock module apart. Folks, this is a very
simple circuit. A few wires, couple of diodes and relays, not much
else. What's the problem with the circuit? Are we sure this is a
problem with the locking module and not simply the age of the
solenoids themselves? When they fail, they will short right back into
the lock module and cause problems. Seems to me that rewinding the
solenoids will restore them to new and prevent this problem from ever

Is there something I'm missing?
