    I have a 1998 MB E320 and the locks randomly go up and down when driving, sometimes even when stopped. If i make the mistake of leaning my elbow or body against the driver side door this also triggers them. It is exceptionally annoying.

The problem is that someone has manualy opened the lock by pulling the lock stick.

Door actuator is bad. just had to replace mine. it's either a $70 or $300 part depending on what door features you have plus about $200 for labor. if you doaon't fix it, the actuator could cease and your door won't close.

2007 gl doors unlock while driving

The most likely cause for the door locks locking and unlocking while driving is one of the door lock actuators has gone bad. Usually the one causing the problem will jump up and down real fast or commonly called 'machine gunning' and then the rest of the locks will unlock,lock,unlock. If this is the case then the door lock assembly or actuator will need to be replaced.

  • Reset your Mercedes-Benz key by placing the key in the ignition of your vehicle while the vehicle is turned off. Do not turn on the vehicle. Press a finger on the "lock" button of your key fob while the key is in the Mercedes' ignition.

  • Pull the key out of the ignition while continuing to hold the "lock" button down. Continue to hold the "lock" button for the duration of the key resetting process

  • Use another finger to push down on the "unlock" button five consecutive times. Keep holding down the "lock" button.

  • Release the "lock" button. This is the end of the resetting process for your Mercedes-Benz. Use your key fob to ensure it is properly working

    The door lock on my 2003 E 320 just goes up and down when I push the remote, it does however set the alarm what is causing the problem?

    From what you describe, it sounds like someone tried to slim-jim the door lock and dislocated the metal rod from the lock cylinder mechanism. There are two rods; one to the lock mechanism, and the other to the interior pop-up lock shaft. If the interior lock shaft is going up and down, but the door is not locking and unlocking, the rod to the lock cylinder/mechanism has fallen off (this is very common when someone tries to slim-jim the door for entry). To repair requires the interior door panel to be removed and the rod to be reinserted back into the small L-shaped plastic clip.

    Hi, You need to replace the door lock assembly. They go bad often on these vehicles. The door panel needs to come off to access the assembly. Not very easy to do unless you know what you are doing.
