Does anyone Know what Relay Derf00 is refering to? I have the same problem described above I have gone thru two batterys and am on my 4th alternator in ten months. I would love to try changing the relay and see if things behave better.
There's a relay in the upper right hand side (drivers side under the dash) that maintains power when you turn the car off until you open a door. Sounds like relay is going bad. It controls all of the interior electronics. If it's going bad or is bad that would present the issues you are describing.
When you turn the car off and take the key out, before you open a door, listen very carefuly, you'll hear what sounds like two noisey small gears rotating, that's actually the relay. when you open the door it should stop after a second or two.
I have a new battery and alternator Could it still be the same problem
