Loud continuous clicking noise from all 4 door locks,
Either 1) One of the door lock switches is stuck (the car is continuously trying to lock or unlock the doors, most likely in the "unlock" position); try to wiggle each door lock switch up and down (into the lock and then unlock position) to see if you can free the stuck switch. 2) More difficult to repair - the locking system's wiring harness has become damaged such that an exposed conductor is making contact with a metal part of the car (i.e. it's being grounded, which has the same effect as operating the door lock switch. Has any work been performed on this car recently, especially any door panels removed? Someone could have shot a screw through the wiring harness. If this is the nature of the problem, it may be a slow, tedious repair.
