If I lock my 2006 Chevy Cobalt, the security system will randomly lock and unlock the doors accompanied with the horn honking

I think you have a BCM - body control module problem ! The BCM controls the automatic door locks .
Automatic Door Lock Operation
This BCM controlled feature can be personalized to driver preference. Refer to Power Door Systems Connector End Views Personalization Description and Operation in Personalization.
The BCM will automatically lock the vehicle doors if the following conditions exist:
All vehicles doors are closed.

The ignition is in the ON position.

The vehicle is shifted out of PARK.

The BCM will then unlock the doors when the ignition is placed in the OFF position. Do the exterior lights flash as well as the horn sounding ?
Body Control Module (BCM)
Content Theft Deterrent
system is an internal function of the Body Control Module (BCM) which utilizes class 2 serial data and various switch input information to perform CTD functions. When the BCM detects an unauthorized entry, it activates the horns and exterior lamps.
When the BCM detects an unauthorized entry, the BCM enters the alarm mode. The BCM activates the horns and exterior lamps for 2 minutes. This is followed by a 3 minute time-out with the horn no longer active. If no new intrusions are detected after the time-out, the horn is not active. The system must be disarmed or the intrusion condition removed after the time-out for the system to exit alarm mode.

Lock door using key. only drivers side door locks remaining doors stay open. why?

I just answered this same question few hours ago...

The culprit is the foolish decisi?n of using a BCM (Body Control Module) to control the door locks with only two wires to the actuator on the lock. In order to "save" a few feet of copper wire, the too-intelligent automotive designers decided to use a costly, heavy, unreliable, complex electronic module instead of the third wire. Therefore, it now needs to multiplex the lock-unlock commands on only two wires. This BCM fails miserably in every Stratus or Sebring and Chrisler Minivans I've seen using this design approach.

As the BCM is VERY expensive and a real pain to remove from the dash, I resorted to disconnecting the wiring from the doors to the BCM, and paid a lot less to a car alarm installer, who installed an inexpensive car alarm with remote. Now I have to carry TWO remotes: the original one to set the original Chrysler alarm/inmovilizer, and the second to be able to remotely actuate the locks. It was much less costly (I saved about $350 USD) and a lot of pain to get the BCM from the car, additionally, I have heard that the repaired BCMs tend to fail again in a matter of two to three years after repair... sooo.

Best Luck. Amclaussen.

On my 2004 dodge stratus the door lock switch on the drivers side does not unlock the doors. It will lock all of the doors and the windows but it just will not unlock. The passenger side still works for...

I have answered this subject many times: it is a bad BCM or Body Control Module. The problem begins intermittently, but progresses during two to three years and finally inutilizes all door locks. As BCM repair and removal from the dash is a real pain, I resorted to disconnect the wiring to the BCM and paid a much lower price to a Car Alarm installer to put an inexpensive alarm that comes with its own remote. In that way I use the new remote to lock-unlock and the original one to set the original alarm-inmobilizer. Amclaussen.

I need to replace the body control module (BCM) of my 1996 Plymouth Voyager with electrical lock. First, where do I find it in my car? Second, how can I get to it for removal (and replace)?

Sorry to tell you this but you cannot do this yourself. My 98 plymuth grand voyager has the same problem. You must take it back to the dealer in order to take it replace. You can't even take it to a garage.

Fallow this Procedure if it Does Not Work then Yes It Could Be BCM only if it Does NOT CRANK when You Attempt to START ENGINE

Lock ALL Doors BY the LOCK BUTTON Wait 1 Minute, Then UNLOCK The DRIVER DOOR WITH KEY, This should Deactivate the ARMING of FACTORY Alarm System.

Key fob wont lock or unlock doors but will open them

It may be the body control module, it controls the locks wipers and alarm. Have it checked by a dodge dealer they have the proper equipment to check the BCM.

1996 Plymouth grand voyager se-need diagram showing where body control module would be located.

The BCM is located on the drivers side under the the steering column. It is behind the fuses and to get to it you have to remove the bash board plastic, than a pice of metal and than you have to remove the fuses box. It will take you approximately 20 min to remove everything. Once you remove the BCM you need to take note of the Part Number P/N. It has to be the same P/N on the replacement BCM. You can use any BCM from years 1996-2000 but make sure the electrical configuration is the same as yours (Power windows, alarms, etc.). I bought my BCM on the junk yard for 35 dollars and my car works perfectly.
I hope this may have assisted you,

I had the exact same problem PLUS my power door locks and some guages stopped working. I replaced the Body Control Module (BCM) which is behind the inside fuse box and problem was fixed. I did get the part from a salvage as the unit from Dodge was $1000. Make sure you replace with same part number and disconnect battery before working on it. One downfall of changing BCM is I now have a new odometer reading.
