You may need new motor mounts...if they are worn out this would allow additonal vibration from the engine to transfer to the vehicle body & doors . If it is 4WD then also check underneath for the center driveshaft mount. Higher mileage cars tend to have the mounts lose there ability to dampen engine movement upon engagement.

Any shop should be able to push on the brake and engage the transmission in drive or reverse and watch the whole vibration event happen.

Then it becomes a determination of which mounts to replace.

What can i do to get rid of a loud sound i am hearing when iam reversing my car?


Automatic? or Standard. Standard, possible transmission gear
problems. possible lube too low. Possible universal joint complaining about going backwards. Applies to Automatic too.
Possible engine or transmission mounts have separated and causing engine or transmission or both vibrating against the floor or body metal. It's difficult to guess at this distance with the information provided. I believe it deserves some attention from a reliable mechanic if not the dealer.

What would cause the doors to randomly lock constant and set security


This is related to communication with the transmission shift "range selector". It is a loose connection that is causing the control module to "see" a park or Neutral and the doors unlock. This may turn on the check engine light also. It may eventuallly cause the transmission to not shift, also. You need to check the connection on the transmission and on the shift range selector (sometimes called the "PRNDL" switch. The computer automatically locks the doors when you select a gear. It is seeing no gear selected and unlocking the doors, the seeing a gear selected again, and locking the doors. You really need to get this repaired soon.
