Not steam, but stReam. I just put my vents on the window and feet, to defrost windshield.

What to lubricate?

And I hope that you understand correctly. When i press my key to lock car - when it works, salon light shuts down and my hazard lights flash one time. I don't have frozen locks or doors. It should be something electrical, not mechanical.

So I shold just check between body and door, for some connector? Or it's somewhere inside the door or body, but I can get to it from the space between car/body, when I open door?

what do you mean pull off the window?

Again, sorry about my english.
