if this is a factory lock security system you can contact dealer for instruction sheet to re-program your remote or have them do that for you if vehicle is under warranty. if not you can go online and find the procedure for your make,model and year of vehicle. sounds like the remote's battery is need of replacing or the remote needs to be re-programmed
Start by having your car checked for a Trouble Code. Many Auto Parts stores do it for free. It seems to be a security issue that keeps locking the door. It is a system which works separate from all the other systems in your car.
Sounds like you have button to one of your door locks that is stuck, you remove door lock switches and disconnect 1 at a time to see which one it is. Over time a stuck switch will drain the battery it's sending voltage to all locks constantly, there's a switch tied to ignition switch on some models that locks door when you start the engine and unlocks doors when you shut the engine off, Chev. Suburbans have that
possible latch became diconnected in door , do you hear lock activate when unlocking or locking door to see if motor is working ,did you try using manual lock button should move up and down,try this while using power locks ,it may be just stuck,
it is probably your door lock has gone into safe mode.you need a new door lock.try using the lock/unlock button on your remote or on the drivers door button and gently tap the door handle with your hand while pressing the lock/unlock button,carefull not to dent your car.if that does not work,try disconnecting the cars battery for a few minutes,but note the vehicle might pick up fault codes which need a diagnostic machine to clear...good luck
