it can be one of two things..

1. one or more of your door mechanisims are cactus

2. one or more of your CL actuators are stuffed

or both..

it usually one of the actuators
when you unlock the car one of the actuators is coming up to slow.
eg if your driver side actuator reaches its unlock position before the pasenger side. the drivers actuator will try to lock because the bcm thinks the pasenger button has been pushed then it will just keep going around in circles untill it evens out

another thing you can try as a temperary.try unlocking or locking the car with the key from the pasenger side and drivers side. some times opening the lock manually will unstick a slow actuator.as in most cases if you have the remote to unlock your door you dont normally use the key and as the actuators get old they start to get lazy.
i use to do that in my eb because sometimes a pasenger would accidently push the door button with his elbow and they would be going up and down for 5 to 10 mins then they would even out and stop. then i would have problems with every day so i started using the key to unlock it and the problem went untill someone accidently pushed the door button again.
i eventually fitted aftermarket actuators and never had a prob after that..
hope that helps lol

I found that if you turn car on a few times and do locking button it fixes it, it works for me

My EL XR6 does this from time to time but it cycles a few times and then returns to a locked state, usually it will work the next time with the key but unfortunately the passenger side key trick can't work in an EL as they don't have a passenger side key....
Mine mostly does it when it is cold...
