Help! My automatic door locks are going crazy!!

I have a 2002 Dodge Dakota SLT Quad Cab and the automatic door locks have become possessed. The doors randomly lock and unlock, sometimes very quickly and continuously for a few seconds and other times they'll be silent for minutes at a time. Doesn't matter if I'm driving, parked with ignition on or parked with keys out of ignition. Totally random click... click-click-click... click-click. Help!

Sounds like one of the little metal clickers wore out on one of them toggle door lock switches. Try all the buttons and see if one is moving kind of freeley. If one is, It is best to replace the whole switch assembly.

It's happended to a number of people. There was a TSB on it for Durangos. It's one of the arm/disarm switches in the doors. Usually happens after a big rain and water gets in. In the mean tome pull the fuse for the power locks.

What Neil said. I tracked mine down to the switch on the drivers door. The switch in question is attached to the end of the lock cylinder inside the door. Pretty cheap as I recall.
