Kudos

My old ea fairmont ghia did that, the pasenger side actuator was loose and sometimes drooped so it sat lower than the other ones.
so when the rest where up it told the controler that "something" was pushing down on the passenger side lock so they all locked' then when they where all down the others told the controller that "something" was pulling up, so they all went up. and back to the start.
you may find ones a little loose, if so it sound like the same thing

My XH had the same prob all the time. Turned out the rod going to the external doorhandle is adjustable and was loading up the door latch. That sort of explained why the door sometimes didn't shut properly! Another contributing factor was all the dirt and dust and s**t inside the mechanisim. Works fine now! :lol:

I suggest getting a can of RP-7, WD-40, or CRC and spraying in your actuators. Close and open the doors a couple times. Give it another spray. Do this to all your doors and then if that dont work go look for the jaycar door lock replacement doco that i redone.

i had this problem a few years ago with my ef gli u press the unlock and it locks itself again, just open the drivers door when it unlocks, lean over to the passengers side and smash the lock a few times with your fist, it seems to fix the problem
