You have a intermittent condition. To isolate the cause: 1.Disconnect the drivers door lock/unlock switch from the connector. Drive the vehicle and see if your random lock/unlock condition has stopped. If it has, replace the switch. If it hasn't:
2. You have a grounding problem or a problem in the BCM (Body Control Module) and should have a technician use a Tech 2 Diagnostic Link Tool to access the BCM computer to obtain any fault code data to help correct the condition.

What do I replace if my Auto door locks won't work

First off testing would need to be done to determen what the cause is . The door locks on your vehicle are controlled by a computer ,BCM - body control module . The first test would be to check for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes in the BCM . An to do this you would need a factory scan tool , not a OBD2 code reader . Door Lock System Components
The Power Door Lock System consists of the following components:
• Body control module (BCM)
• Driver door lock switch
• Front passenger door lock switch
• Reversible door lock actuator in each of the doors
• IBCM (PWR) 15-amp fuse
• Driver door cylinder switch, if equipped
Door Lock System Controls
The Power Door Lock System is controlled by the body control module (BCM) and can be activated by any one of the following:
• A door lock switch lock or unlock actuation
• A keyless entry transmitter actuation
• An automatic door lock or unlock actuation
• A last door closed locking (LDCL) actuation
If the driver door cylinder switch feature of the vehicle is functional, the locks may also be operated by a driver door cylinder switch lock or unlock activation.
Your best bet would be to take to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer.Because if the BCM were the problem an had to be replaced , it would need programming .
Each door lock switch is wired to the body control module (BCM) through a separate door lock/unlock signal circuit. While these circuits are separated between the BCM and respective door lock switch, they are connected into a single circuit within the BCM. The BCM supplies voltage through the door lock/unlock signal circuits to each door lock switch. When either door lock switch is operated, this supply voltage is pulled to ground, providing the BCM with the required lock or unlock signal. In order for the BCM to distinguish between a lock and unlock signal, the lock switch contains two separate paths for this voltage to flow to the same body ground. When the switch is operated to the unlock position, the supply voltage flows to ground through a 1.5K ohm resistor. When the switch is operated to the lock position, the supply voltage flows to ground through a different part of the switch circuit, which has no resistor. The BCM then interprets the flow of voltage as a lock or unlock request and powers the door lock actuators to the appropriate lock or unlock position.

Why is door locks sticking. All the doors don't lock when the car is placed in drive, and only one or two unlock when unlocking with key fob. What is the problem?

You are not telling me where you live, but here are some ideas.
Door locks have "always been" inside the doors of the car, and as such, cannot be easily lubricated at all.
From the factory, they have no lubrication, are supposed to "just work" for 20 years or so.
I would be highly suspicious that you may live where there is ice and snow, which can cause rust or corrosion inside the doors, and may make your locks stick . Fixing would include taking each door apart and lubricating the mechanisms. That is a big job.
Be blessed.

I can not lock my doors using the lock button on the door. But I can lock the doors by using the clicker on my key chain. Where do I start looking to fix this?

The switches sometimes wear out. You can replace it yourself . They pop out and unplug. The plug in and pop in new one. small hands are helpful

How to take child safety locks off on chevy malibu

Hi ,
Check your owners manual (first) the go to the door itself and look at the under side of the door and you will see a sticker guide to the operation of the safety locks . It's usually a slight turn (90*) on a simple mechanism within the door lock assy .It's always a good idea to lock the traffic side door with children on board. GOOD LUCK
