Mine sometimes does that. I am certain I locked it and come back and s**t its unlocked.

Is it a faulty SmartLock pad, locks, door mechinisms etc?

I swear I've had it happen too. But I've got an aftermarket alarm fitted, so I guess rule out smartlock. maybe lock mechanisms.

mine used to do that, probably done it about 3 times in the 9 years I've had it soo never really bothered about it. I heard it was a problem Ford did a recall on and replaced all the actuators......

My 98 EL was doing the same, but I actually caught it in the act. - I even say the locks bobbing up and down up and down. I spoke to my sparky and he said its quite common, and is linked to one of the four door lock motors, on its way out. Find the culprit and replace it - problem gone!

My 95EF does the same thing with the locks, positive I lock it and then find it unlocked. I caught it out one day, it locks then unlocks without setting the horn off. and it often goes stupid and goes through the lock/unlock routine until it decides what to do - I am fairly certain it only does that on hot summer days, it was ok for months and then started doing it again - the only thing that changed was the weather.
and it seems ok on cool rainy days we are having in sydney.

thats interesting, was replacing my indicators today and the reverse happened. the car was unlocked and then decided to lock itself, only reason I found this out was from the indicator i just put in, did the usual flash when the cars locked. I always thought my garage was pretty safe, maybe my ute thought otherwise...
As for why it did it, got me buggered, never happened before.
