Auto Door Locks
I read the other door lock posts and there wasn't enough resolution for me.
(2007 Chevy Cobalt LT - 200,000 km)
similar problem, door locks started going crazy by themselves 3 days ago; here's what I did:
pulled the psngr side kick-panel fuse - auto door locks # 26 I think,
fuse was fine but I could hear the\a switch clicking randomly,
pulled the drivers side armrest door - lock control panel off- it was dry, thought it may be shorting due to water from wipers splashing the switch,
called Lordco, they said call GM,
GM says 1-2 hours with a technician to figure out the problem (yeah right, 300 bucks +...NOT)
GM wouldn't just tell me the name of the part or part #, so I could just buy a new switch (go figure),
I had a brand new fob programmed 2 years ago - 145.00 for the service and 125.00 for the new fob...its not under warranty anymore.
to me its either the relay switch at the fuse panel or a short in one of the door control panels, so I need the part name and # or a slightly better route to resolution.
Thanks for your feedback, for the time being I just pulled the fuse and manually lock my doors and then engage my anti theft.
