    Door Locks Unlocking On Their Own

    I have an odd little problem. . . My door locks repeatedly try to unlock while driving down the road, like someones playin with the remote. It seems like they're only trying to do this while the ignition is turn on, so security's not really an issue, just annoyance. To me, it seems like a something wrong with the remote sensor or a bad ground. Anyone ever experience this? Where is the remote sensor located?

    Start with checking your battery voltage and connections.

    Could be a bad power lock switch as well. The spring that returns the switch could be worn and while driving it would be like you're pushing it. Just something to check.
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    I had this problem except mine just kept locking and locked my keys in anytime the door closed. i traced it to the driver's side door switch, water dripped on it from the t-top when driving at highway speed and fried something i guess. i just cut the ground to the switch b/c i never lock my doors with the door switch anyway just the remote. no problems since..

    This is interesting, I think the switch would be the easiest thing to test. You can look at the window motor replacment instructions by following the link in my sig if you are unsure how to remove the switch bezel.

    Just unplug one for a day and see if it stops. Otherwise I think Smittro is right on the money...
