I have been having some issues with my doors not locking. I ALWAYS lock my car and sometimes when i go to get in I forget to hit the unlock button but the door opens anyways and the alarm goes off.

Recently it seems like everytime I forget to unlock it happens. So I have been purposly not hitting the unlock button, cause it disables the alarm obviously, to see how much it really happens and its pretty much all the time now. Does anyone know why this is happening and if it can be fixed with vcds?

Thanks guys.

I had that problem before only backwards. My doors wouldn't unlock. I would have to hit the lock and unlock sequence about 5-10 times before they would finally unlock. Took it in to the dealership and both door switches ended up being faulty. Might be the same issue your having.
