Hi there:

Based on your question and the information listed, it’s possible that you’ve got an exposed wire somewhere in your vehicle that is causing a short with your door locking mechanism. Sometimes this issue is caused by a faulty relay from the power door locks on the driver or passenger side to the control module under the dashboard. To know for certain, you should probably contact a local mechanic and have them complete an electrical problems inspection.
