Q: Doors keep unlocking. Using both manual and auto-lock.

asked by on

Doors manually unlock within 20 seconds of locking them, using both manual and auto-locks.

I would have a technician inspect your electrical system. It sounds like you may have some electrical problems. There could be a shorted wire where the wires go into the doors or you may have a bad lock sensor on one of the locks.
