Using the key or remote? If it's only with the remote try retraining it, if it still plays up replace the battery in the remote and try again.

i was thinking something along those lines troy, would the best way to test be unplug one at a time and see if it still does it?

i would say its probably the passenger front, try locking and unlocking the car from the passenger door with the key and see if it stops doing it..

no it does not stop, but a suspect the issue is with the passenger front as it is having other issues like when unlocking with the remote you cant open that door but it will open with key, this actuator has already been replaced i suspect the replacement is also faulty

open it up and have a look,

just a tip even if one of the rods is bent just a tad it will crack a fit and unlock-cycle so if the doors just had the actuator replaced id be looking at that one first

i noticed when i turn the ignition off and remove the key the smartlock light does not flash, and there is a range of noises, (sounds like relays ticking) coming from the bcm,
when the lock button is pressed on the keypad or button inside the car, the locks cycle and the smartlock light begins to flash,

should i replace the bcm or could it be a wiring issue
