My car locks work a few times and then stop working after 3 or 4 times but it sounds like it is trying. What could it be

My car has 180000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If your door locks are not working properly, I would recommend having the door lock system inspected by a qualifed professional. It is possible that the door lock actuators may be faulty. It is also possible that there is an issue with the door lock module. This module is a small computer that is responsible for controling the door locks. Consider YourMechanic for this inspection as a certified professional can come to your home or office to [inspect your door lock system]https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/power-door-locks-are-not-working-inspection) for you to determine the cause of this issue.
