Anyone have power door locks start going up and down on its own?

Well on track this weekend I start hearing a click, click, click... So I go in pits and find my power door lock going up and down on there own. I am not 100% sure if it's power locks or alarm arming and locking doors on and off. It's not all the time up and down, but random as driving and when parked and ignition off it auto locks on and off then locks and stops in lock position.

I tried unplugging the console lock switch but still same. I ended up pulling the lock fuse as a quick fix. I also tried the "alarm off" pin and code seemed to turn off alarm with confirm beep, but then alarm still arms itself.

Any ideas?

Mine started doing it on Saturday on track one or two times and I was not sure where the click click came from. Then on Sunday I kept hearing click click lick more often when I found it was door locks going up and down when driving. Then became more frequent.

Anyone have any idea? Again I tried removing the console lock switch to see if faulty switch but still does it. It is both doors. I removed fuse that is for power locks only for temp fix for now.

Power locks or passive alarm issue? With fuse in and I turn off car after about same amount of time door locks goes up and down a few times then lock doors. It never passive armed before.

If it is only doing it when you are in it/near it I vote the key fob

Thanks, I did have both fobs with me this weekend and might be using backup fob for the first time. When I get home I will get new batteries in both and test each fob with other one out of range. This sounds like it could be it, I hope.

Tried both key FOBs separate and was not the issue. But I took console out and found when moving the main wire harness by metal forward under dash console tube locks open/shut. So took out forward metal console and found micro hole in tape wrap rubbing to metal console. So unwrapped checked all wires and rewrapped with heavy duty plastic insulation electric tape and no issues anymore. Seems I found it...
