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.

thank you's

Once again Coby7, I bow to your experience and wisdom.
the FoB is fine and the problem does seem to stem from the drivers side switch. The link to what I need was a very thoughtful inclusion.

Thanks again, this help was invaluable.:)
much respect;
Darkannon

Disconnect the switch if it stops you know it's the switch
