Default 2008 Forenza Power lock issues.

I'm sure this has been posted before, but I've only found 2 posts that were 3-5 years old with no answers. I have an 08 forenza 5 sp with roughly 78,xxx miles. If I lock the door from inside there is no issue, but if I unlock the doors from inside they keep trying to unlock. I have replaced the relay under the hood. It did not solve the issue.

this happen on all doors or just the drivers? if its drivers only i suspect the unlock switch is out of adjustment inside the door and works fine off the external key but not on the internal lever.

It's all doors and a clicking sound that sounds like it's from under the passenger side of the dash but I can't locate it

what i meant was which door lock are you using that causes this issue, the drivers only, or does any door cause it to occur?

Obviously being central locking its going to work on all doors, I'm just trying to find out which door lock is causing the issues

I manually locked and unlocked all doors using the lock inside. I couldn't push the lock on the driver door manually. It's pouring out so I didn't try anything else.

A little further investigation, led me to the driver door. I could not manually lock the driver door. After taking the panel off and digging in the door I found if I put constant firm Pressure on the door lock, it spasms and tries to unlock itself very quickly. Unfortunately I wasn't at home so I had limited tools. Any help on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. I am going to switch batteries I have a newer one that's in better shape than the one that's in it.

Hi Jessy I have the same problem. Haven't removed the door panel to experiment yet. Hopefully one of us gets to the bottom of this.

By the way do you know if removing the relay will at least prevent the repetitive self-locking attempts?

I do believe it will stop it temporarily but it will also stop the windows If they are power

sounds like the switch contacts in the mechanism are out of adjustment, not sure if they are adjustable on this model or whether its a new door lock thats required.
