Subject: Central lock burns fuse

My 900i -89 central lock sometimes burns the 10A fuse. Half year ago i found out that one door had stiff knob (inside the door the pivot of the lever was corroded). After lubrication all seemed OK. But nowadays it started again burning fuses. Now lock knobs seems to be moving without excess force on every door. When central lock works on first attempt then it works several times. The fuse always burns on first attempt to open/close locks for example on the morning. There appears to be a slight (about 0,5 to 1s) delay when opening the locks. Normally it works at once. Normally the current on the fuse is about 8A for 1s when lock is used. My guess is that all levers are slightly corroded and needs lubrication remembering that this car has been 10 years in Scandinavian climate! Any hints and advice greatly appreciated.
