If you lock the car manually with the key...take a look at the DWA red LED (on top of the dash) to see if there may be an issue with one of the DWA "monitors"...perhaps one of the not so easy to find/see monitors is staying open.

The chart below should give you an idea of what to look for (as far as the LED flashing):
