Default Door Locks Electric

The other day, while sitting in the 1998 Saturn, 4 door , the electric locks, were activating themselves, Seemed to start when the door was opened, both with engine running, and off. Had to pull the 2 Relays to get it to stop.
Any ideas appreciated

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Generally it's the driver door lock/unlock switch. Pry it out of the door & disconnect to test.

Can skip to the beginning by removing the "?t=90" part of the link but it takes the 90 seconds to get to anything useful.

If you buy the POS Dorman replacement, be sure to save your old lock to swap the trim over. The Dorman one is often the wrong side and you have to use the original trim piece. It's higher quality anyway, so regardless you'll probably want to use it over the paper thin one that will come with the switch.
