Question Sound on unlocking and brakes acting funny

325xi 02 116k
Anyhow, when I unlocked my doors today I noticed an odd little buzzing noise. It only happens when I unlock them, not when I lock them, and it happens everytime. They never fail to unlock, the noise is just unnerving.

Brakes:
Replaced pads and rotors about 2 months ago due to warped rotors causing vibrations when braking. Maybe 3 weeks afterwards I got a slight vibration back in the breaks, and now it's nearly back to where it was initially. On top of that, my breaks squeal a bit when I press lightly on them as if the pads were in need of replacement. It's my understanding that pads should last longer than 2 months.
Ideas?
