Without knowing make or model of car, hard to tell. Some cars, like Hondas, will not lock if one door is slightly ajar or at least the switch that is supposed to say the door is closed says it is open. Look on your dashboard and see if a door ajar light is lit when this happens. Back hatches are usually the culprit if the switches are good, because they don't have the same latching mechanism as a side door. You could have a failure in the electronic lock receiver or wiring and that might be detectable by the onboard computer. See someone with a professional computer code reader.

SOURCE: Car Alarm

sounds like the drivers side key switch has failed remove the interior door panel and there will be a switch attached to the back of the key lock cylinder or around there it should be two or three wires also check the door jamb wire harness where the door closes for any broken or damaged wires, use a vot meter and see if you get power or ground to the opposite side of the switch when you use the key to lock and unlock the door if nothing changes and there is power or ground! at this switch i would replace it, i don't think there is one but if the car has a passenger side key hole try to unlock the car from that side and see if you get the same problem -jeff

A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

Door lock problem


Even though it's a 2001, it's still an A3, so the locks are operated using a separate vacuum pump, and hard plastic lines. Check inside the drivers door hinge area. Remove that accordion thing over the wires. There's a vacuum coupling centrally located after you twist, and separate the lock on the harness connector, and separate the 2 parts. There is also, a little tiny "o"-ring that seals the vacuum passage. Replace it, and see if the wait is shorter. I highly recommend using a little Vaseline to aid in the insertion , and seal of the new o-ring. Good luck.
