Hi:
The most likely cause of this is the power door lock control module. You can locate the fuse for the power door locks and pull that, to keep your durango secure. I am not 100% sure , but I think the module is located inside the drivers door.

SOURCE: power door locks continusly lock and unlock

Sounds like the electrical relay that controls the locks. Trace the clicking sound and that may be where you have a bank or relays and fuses which control different functions of the car. The relays just pull our of there sockets and are easily relpaced. Once you have identified the suspect on you may find there are other relays with the same part number adjacent. If this is the case you can try swapping two identical ones and see if this solves the problem. Mark the relays first so you dont mix up a potentially bad relay.

Drive side power door lock is not working


If the door lock works ok with a key, I would say the lock actuator is failing. Its a small electric solenoid that moves the lock rod.

1995 Jeep Grans Cherokee electric door locks not working when I hit the button they won't work. they make some sort of noise but they don't lock or unlock. only seems to lock the back hatch but...


Well, it is hard to say for sure without some electrical testing. It could be that you need to buy a whole bunch of door lock actuators - especially if you started losing one door lock at a time. If all of the door locks started acting up all at the same time, there is most likely high resistance in one of the door lock main power circuits - like the one that comes from the ignition switch or from the keyless entry module (if equipped).
Then on the other hand, if they LOCK OK, but do not want to UNLOCK (or visa-versa) there could be worn or burned contacts in either the lock relay or the unlock relay (or possibly even BOTH).

Again, some electrical testing should be done to pinpoint the actual cause of the problem before going out and spending a bunch of money on parts.

Central Locking


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front door can unlocked with the key manually. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. If no doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittantly or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. You will hear the "beep" but no door locks will fire at all. If you have odd door locks not working intermittantly you need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear of the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. If you can hear the door lock working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.

Electric door lock mafunction


Door lock/unlock actuator (motor) has gone bad in the passenger side. Get the actuator from a Hyundai Parts dealer (or junk yard if you trust them) and replace it yourself OR take it to a Hyundai Service Center and they'll do it for you.

When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front doors can unlocked with the key manually only. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. 
If NONE of doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittently or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. Pressing the remote button you will hear the "beep", but no door locks will fire at all. 
If you have a few odd door locks not working intermittently or not at all, you will need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear if the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. 
If you can hear the door lock motor working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
Sometimes a bad door lock motor can blow the central locking fuse. You will notice it because it will take a second or two longer to lock and unlock compared to the others. If the door lock motors seem fine, install a the next step up in amperage fuse. (From 15 AMP to a 20 AMP)
