Default Manual door lock will lock but when I close the door it will unlock.

I've noticed that my driver's side door will lock but then unlock immediately after the impact made when closing. Please help!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Try lifting the outside door handle when you shut the door, some have a safety so you don't lock the keys in the car accidentally

Luckily, I found a solution. After I lock it thru the inside I pull the handle as if I were going to open it from the inside.

Can you explain that solution? My rear driver side door has been doing that since I got the car I just always close the door and go in from the front door to lock it, even after driving for an hour sometimes it will rattle itself to an unlocked position.

You lock it from the inside then pull the handle from the inside? You then close the door after that?
