You have a wire shorting to ground (in doors?), or water in door lock connector in door, or a bad module.

How do i open my door when my car battry dies and my door locking is sticking, and it wont work by the key fob????

The biggest reason this happens is because no one uses the key to unlock doors. The cylinders in the key slots loose their lube and get stuck in a certain position(corrosion). Spray some lube in it(wd40) and work the key in and out. Spray more lube. Work it more. This may release your locks, but is no guaranty. You may have t have a lock smith come out and fix it.

Key fob

Walk out to the vehicle with a new battery in the key fob and press the lock AND unlock button at the same time while you stand close to the vehicle for 7 seconds. You will hear the doors go thru a lock and unlock cycle, your fob is now programmed. This will sync existing programmed controllers, security sync. to program new remotes:In the trunk, connected to the wireless remote controller (driver side on wheel well, need to remove 'mat') is an empty connector with 2 wires connected. short the two connector pins. The locks will all cycle. Press and hold lock/unlock buttons on remote until locks cycle on/off. repeat for other remotes. Remove short across connector pins. Test new remote(s).Warning:existing remotes are deprogrammed, only remotes programmed will work from now on.This worked on my 1998 Cavalier. Be sure battries in new remote(s) are good! Answer Locate the data link connector under the dash (under the steering column). Ground out pin #8 of the DLC (top right port) with a jumper wire to any piece of metal close by (I use the e brake hardware). The door locks will then lock & unlock to let you know you are in the programming mode. Simultaneously press & hold the lock & unlock button on one of the keyless entries until the locks cycle (this lets you know the transmitter has been programmed). Repeat this step for your second transmitter. You must reprogram the 2nd transmitter within 60 seconds of programming the 1st one or you have to start over.

Locks that unlock on their own

One of the lock actuators is bad. It's not locking or unlocking all the way. watch the locks while working the lock and unlock switches. If you see a lock with a sluggish response, thats the bad one. Note-- Over working the locks while testing will cause over heating and locks will stop.
