I just noticed that I have problem with automatic lock. It used to unlock/lock the passenger door's lock when I unlock/lock driver side's lock. Now it doesn't... could it be problem with wires... (I checked fuse and it was OK).
What should I check to fix the problem? (I really don't want to go to dealer cuz they are too far away from here ~_~)

Sounds like it could be 1 of 2 problems.

1) A wire came lose and that is why the door won't lock/unlock
2) Your automatic door lock actuator (motor) burned out prematurely and you need a new one. That should be covered under warranty

I didn't think that the tibs had actuators...and if they did, since our "power door locks" aren't true power door locks I would imagine that there was only one actuator on the driver's side...

oh... so it sounds like that I have to take this car to dealer...

Does anyone have any idea how long it usually take them to fix this kind of "simple" problem?

Call them ahead of time to make an appointment. Ask for the service Manager. Make sure he knows that you are driving 4 hours one way, and ask him to have the door lock part in stock. That way you will not have to make a repeat trip while they order the part....

This happened to my tib about 2 months after I got it. I took it to the dealership they had it fixed and out in about an hour.
