Check for loose plug to/or defective door lock switch. Also check for stripped wiring.

Good Luck!!

Randomly locking doors and sometimes continuous clicking leading to battery drainage.

If the locking seems continuous and almost glitchy I would buy new locks for both front doors. If it seems to be one timing lock and not acting glitchy then it most likely is a interference with a security alarm at that point I would disconnect the fuse for pwr locks as a quick fix.

My door locks close but they dont open

Switch may be dirty or worn out. Or the lock mechanisms themselves need to be cleaned and lubed. I would try cleaning the lock mecahnisms first.

I have had this happen 2ce. Keys in ignition w/ Van running . Got in and out 2 or 3 times and then went to get in and doors were locked !!! What's the deal ! I know I didn't lock it. Keys were...

these things lock themselves ,i always leave a window or a side door open when servicing these vehicles ,also a astro van as well will lock itself after a while .Doesnt happen with europeon vehicles for some reason but i still leave a window open or keys on the roof as a precaution after the chrysler turn out but do not ask about that episode

My 1998 Mercedes Benz C 280 key wont turn. Was working perfect. The remote stop working so I manually open door, but electronic key wont turn.

sounds like the battery in the remote is old and dead and needs to be replaced. ( could also be the electric door lock fuse ).
if you are also experiencing trouble with your door locks themselves turning - then try and spray some teflon or silicone base lubrication in all the locks to wash out any dirt or debris.

All 4 door lock will sometimes lock by themselves after you shut the door "unlocked"

Seems to be built into the Toyota security system. Occurs when you lock, then unlock the car and let it sit for 1-2 minutes.

Everytime i lock my van the locks keep unlocking themselves

My Honda did this when the driver's door wasn't fully closed.
Does the inside light (dome light) turn on and off correctly when you open and close the driver's door?

If not, then the door latch might be loose or the door sensor switch might have failed (so it thinks the door is open even when it's closed securely)

Door locks open by themselves randomly

some possibilities

The power door locks may self-activate or cycle on some vehicles. This may be caused by a misadjusted front door lock linkage, excess solder in the front door power window switch, water infiltration of a potential open wire harness connector inside the front doors, wiring harness chafe on the door check strap, or a damaged Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) key fob.
