This is a feature in most modern north amercian cars, and I suspect european cars as well, it is anti carjacking. Likely the feature was disabled, when you did the battery replacement, you reset every thing back to stock. Consult your owners manual, it should have a better explanation and perhaps even the bypass sequence.

Hope this is of some help.

That's a safety feature.... not sure why it didn't work before.... there must be a way to shut it off but i'm uncertain how to do it for that car.

What causes auto locks to go off by themselves constantly. What causes auto locks to go off by themselves constantly


Many newer vehicles use a voltage-differential method of locking/unlocking the doors. This uses a resistor to create the voltage difference between lock and unlock commands depending upon which way you toggle the lock switch. They do this so that if the car battery starts to fail, and the voltage drops to a certain point, the doors will unlock automatically rather than staying locked, allowing you from entry if the battery dies (seeing as some newer cars do not have key-type door locks anymore). The problem could be that your charging system is not putting out the proper voltage or you could have a faulty lock switch or resistor.

1997 Ford Ranger 2.3L Hard Start


I love my Rangers, and it sounds like you need a new starter drive, better know as the bendix. It is cheaper to buy a new starter. As far as the door locks, I would get the starter fixed first and the door lock problem may go away. sounds like the starter is dragging the power down and could cause a number of strange thing to happen. Hope I have help you solve your problem. I think It will.

CHevy cobalt door locks- lock and unlock while I am driving had key fob reprogrammed and it was ok for about two hours and started all over again. What can the problem be?


Could be a problem in the shiftier. Your car doors lock automatically when you put the car in drive. They unlock when you put the car in park. The switch located in the shiftier can go bad causing the locks to randomly lock and unlock. Also, this can cause the key to get stuck in the ignition.
