2009 Pontiac Vibe doors locking on their own

I have a new 2009 Pontiac Vibe and off and on from the start when I get out of the drivers door will lock on it's own. I had it into the dealership where I purchased it and they did a check but could not find a cause and it would not do it when I was there.
Now about 2 weeks later it did it 4 times in a row today and I have been keeping track and everytime I have gotten out and not locked the doors, the drivers door will lock on it's own.
Just wondering if anyone else has found this problem.

Keep the locking remote far away from the vehicle and see if it still locks on it's own.
Also you may need a new battery in the remote or a new remote.

Sounds like a faulty door lock actuator inside the passenger door. Have you had the window regulator replaced recently where the plug could have been disconnected?

Keys do not open doors just the keyless remote


Sounds like someone replaced the ignition. The vibe uses one key for all locks and if you replace just one the key wont work. you might see if the dealer can get a factory replacement from the factory key code. you will need to get a new key with the factory code as well but this should solve the problem.

Look under the Hood and Locate the Fuse Relay Box. Should be on the Drivers side torwards the Firewall. There is a Relay in it for the Door Locks. Replace this Relay and see if they will not work. Also check the Fuses in BOTH Boxes inside and under Hood with a Flashlight and Make for Sure that no Fuses are Blown. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

The 2006 Vibe no longer has that feature. It was discontinued after 2005. I have the 2005 so I know how to change it. If your 2006 is able to change then here are the directions from my 2005.
Programmable Automatic
Door Locks
If you have an automatic transaxle, your vehicle is equipped with an auto door lock/unlock feature which enables you to program your power door locks.
Your vehicle left the factory programmed to Mode 4.
The following is a list of the available programming options:
Mode 1: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. There is no automatic door unlocking.
Mode 2: No automatic door locking or unlocking.
Mode 3: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the shift lever is moved to PARK (P) with the ignition on.
Mode 4: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the ignition switch is turned from ON to ACC or to LOCK.
To change the mode you are in, do the following:
1. Set the interior lamp control dial to the door position.
See Interior Lamps Control on page 3-16.
2. Move the shift lever into PARK (P) and close all doors and liftgate.
3. Turn the ignition to ON.
4. Within five seconds after the ignition is turned to ON, press and hold the power door lock switch in
the lock position for about five seconds.
5. The interior lamp will flash to indicate that the mode has been changed. For example, if the lamp flashes once, the function has been changed to Mode 1.
If the battery is disconnected or run down, the mode is changed to the initial mode which is Mode 4.
