When the driver side door is opened it starts making a locking / unlocking type of noise. The rear door also makes the same noise at the same time. It lasts about 10 to 15 seconds. During that time the car cannot be locked remotely. The door locks do not lock and unlock while the noise it occurring. Any idea what is causing this?

Can we have more option/feature details? For instance, do you have “soft-close” doors? If you do, then it has a different door lock actuator set up…there’s an additional soft-close actuator. Could it be a failing soft-close actuator(s) causing the noise?

Failing door lock mechanism engages the anti-repeat function. After a number of cycles - I don’t recall how many - the lock/unlock cycle is defeated. My front passenger door lock mechanism is off line.
