The door locks will just lock and unlock without anyone pressing the remote. I tried to lock the car manually and this worked but again the locks opened the door and than I could hear the mechanism inside the door panel working constantly and I could not interrupt the problem manually? Any suggestions?
Re: 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse door locks Malfunctioning
Switch is going bad or loose. look under door pad unplug and replug. If it stops and returns to normal it was loose.. If it doesn't either replace switch (maybe expensive) or just unplug and do manually from now on.

it is not the actuators, try a different remote, you may have an issue with the car security system/body computer not functioning on the unlock driver door command, one press of remote is unlock driver door and 2 presses is unlock the other doors.
The keyless entry system consists of the following:
smart entry control(SEC)/timer module
keyless entry remote transmitters
power door lock actuators
body side door power door lock actuator
power door lock switches
door ajar switches
Principles of Operation
All doors can be locked at once by turning the door key lock switch to the locked position. An individual door can be unlocked by moving the door key lock switch to the unlocked position and turning it again within five seconds; all the doors (including the liftgate) will unlock.
The smart lock system is designed to keep the driver from locking his keys in the car. It will lock and then unlock all the doors if the smart entry control(SEC)/timer module detects the following conditions:
The ignition key still in the ignition.
A front door is open.
A door lock switch has been pushed to the lock position.
The panic feature has a duration of 30 seconds from the last time the PANIC button is pressed. When locking the doors from the remote transmitter, the horn chirp/lamp flash feature can be disabled or enabled by holding the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons for two seconds. The hazards will flash three times to confirm that the feature has be enabled or disabled.
The control module probably see's an input that shouldn't be there . lock Switch , door ajar etc... Don't think it has anything to do with the remote . Some part stores have a tester to see if signal from the remote is working . Or the dealer ! Take it an see if your remote is sending a signal without you pressing any buttons .
If it is you need a new one .

1. Locate the Data Port under drivers side dashboard usually located to the right of steering column. 2. Insert keys in ignition and leave in the OFF position. 3. Make sure there are metal contact pins in terminals 1 and 4 and connect the Data Port terminals 1 and 4 with a suitable jumper wire, leave the jumper wire connected throughout the programming procedure. Make sure you know which terminals are 1 and 4. 4. Within 10 seconds after connecting the jumper wire, press the Hazard Switch 6 times. Note: The doors will automatically lock and unlock once at this time indicating that the system is in the programming mode. 5. Press the LOCK button on the remote to be registered three times within 10 seconds. Upon successful programming, the door will lock and unlock once. 6. Repeat step 5 with up to 4 remotes (including any existing remotes) within one minute. After completing each programming, the doors will lock and unlock once. 7. Disconnect the programming wire and remove the keys from the ignition.
