This sounds like a stuck unlock/lock button some where. take out the switchs and unplug the connectors until this stops. if it doesn't there is a problem with the BCM(body control module). then find the fuse for the locks and pull it out until problem is resolved.
thanks jeff

For about the last week or two, my car door locks just continually unlock, as if someone is pushing the unlock button on the key fob. It does this even when the keys are not it in, and while it's


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

When I put the key in door to unlock it locks and unlocks and continues this while I have the key in lock when I remove key it locks putting the security feature on.


You either have a bad "arm/disarm" switch or the switch has fallen off from the lock cylinder.

What is happening is the security system is not receiving the disarm signal when you unlock the door with the key. It thinks the car is being stolen so it continues to lock the lock to prevent this.

There arm/disarm switch is clipped onto the door lock cylinders on the front doors and the rear hatch. If it does the same thing with the other doors than there may be an issue with the security system. If the other doors work fine than I would pull the door panel (I assume you are getting this problem with the drivers front door) and inspect the switch.

Here's a pic of what it looks likeairjer995_92.jpg

If you have any questions let me know.

I used csorb's instructions to reprogram a master key for my 2000 Lexus RX300. The ignition works perfectly, but the doors don't lock or unlock.


Hi!!
I believe your alarm is in the PASSIVE MODE, here is how it works.

PASSIVE MODE Setting (Arming) Anti-Theft System The system will automatically set 30 seconds after following methods are performed: Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Exit vehicle, and close all doors. After performing this, anti-theft indicator on left side of instrument panel will light continuously for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, anti-theft indicator will blink once per second. When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch.
CANCELING THE ALARM AND REPROGRAMING MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm) When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of following methods to cancel system setting:
  • Unlock left or right front door using key.
  • Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.
  • Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
HERE IS HOW TO REPROGRAM THE ALARM IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESET IT.
PROGRAMMING
PASSIVE MODE NOTE:Initial mode is passive mode off. If there is a different signal in middle of programming, signal is invalid.
Programming Passive Mode Off
  • Remove ignition key from ignition key cylinder. Ensure all doors (including back door) and engine hood are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 2 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be off.
Programming Passive Mode On
  • Remove ignition key from key cylinder. Ensure all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 4 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be on.

2000 BMW 323I WONT UNLOCK WITH THE KEY OR KEY FOB, ANY IDEAS?


I had same problem. Driver door would lock/unlock with key in keyhole in door, but not with fob, and other doors would not lock/unlock. Even once inside none of the doors would lock/unlock with lock switch, or even by pulling handles. Mechanic (very trustworthy) explained I needed a new control module (cost me $600). Good Luck. $600 is better than having to roll down the windows so Grandma can Luke Duke it outta the car.
