What would cause the doors to randomly lock constant and set security


This is related to communication with the transmission shift "range selector". It is a loose connection that is causing the control module to "see" a park or Neutral and the doors unlock. This may turn on the check engine light also. It may eventuallly cause the transmission to not shift, also. You need to check the connection on the transmission and on the shift range selector (sometimes called the "PRNDL" switch. The computer automatically locks the doors when you select a gear. It is seeing no gear selected and unlocking the doors, the seeing a gear selected again, and locking the doors. You really need to get this repaired soon.

The door switch is part of the door catch assembly. Try spraying some WD40 into the catch and opening and closing the door several times. If the cam inside the catch will not free itself off, you will need a new catch. Hope this helps...

Gear shift


alot of times what happens when you turn the key the pin that locks the steering wheel and also allows the shiftet arm to move doesn't always dis-ingage. if you can do this yourself dis-assembly of the steering column is not difficult, however if you have a driverside airbag be etremely careful you can set it off with a static charge. if you feel uncomfortable doing this take it to a small independant shop where labor cost is minimal. dealships are quite pricey these days.
