My door locks keep locking and unlocking by themselves how can I fix this problem

Most of the time this is cashed by a key fob that has malfunctioned either due to weak battery, some foreign contamination or just amalfunction. Remove the battery from all the fobs and see it it stops. If so put battery back i. One and wait. If still functions fine put battery in other. Thus PROCESS SHOULD Reveal Which One Is The culprit.

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.

Doors lock themselves for no apparent reason

I would check the battery in your car remote . I had the same issue where if the remote was within 50-70 feet from the car my doors would lock or unlock and sometimes the remote start would turn the car on randomly. The battery was my cure.

Central locking locks keep going up and down and not locking doors

The actuator could be bad inside the doors.
If they keep going up and down by themselves, you have a problem with the power door lock module, maybe.

1994 Nissan Pathfinder...door ajar light comes on and off when all doors are closed. Keeps the floor lights on and runs down the battery. How do I fix this? Also, when I close the doors, sometimes locks...

Sound's like there is a short in the wiring and it is either getting a positive connection through the ground but if you take it to a shop they can tell you more cause they can test it for you

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee alarm keeps randomly going off.

this happened to me recently with my 96 grand cherokee. the battery got drained by the alarm going off randomly at night. i pulled the fuse for the horn so at least my neighbors would only be bothered by flashing lights. then i couldn't jump the car because the alarm was still going off. i hooked my car to jump it to another car, and then i had to deactivate the alarm first by putting my key in the driver side door and unlocking the car. then i left it hooked to another car and still getting power but didn't jump it for at least 5 minutes in case the computer needed to reset. then it jumped fine. from what i've read online, this is a common problem that can be avoided if you stop using the power locks and always manually lock and unlock the doors with your key. its a little annoying, but apparently the power locks are connected to the alarm issue. hope the same works for you.
