If I use the transmitter to unlock the car, all of the locks unlock and then instantly lock. It does the same thing if I use the door-lock switch on the inside. Also, sometimes if I put the key in the ignition (but don't turn it at all) and my driver's side door is open all of the locks go back and forth constantly. Any ideas? or is this something a mechanic needs to fix?

I'm thinking you should take it in, unless its something obvious like your door switch is stuck down on one side.

the problem is with your ignition switch.. there was a service bulletin released on this very issue.. your car is thinking that the key is still in the ignition even when it's not.. so when you go to lock the doors by the switch it just unlocks them because it thinks you have the keys in the ignition.. your remotes don't work as well either.. also when you open the door you hear a beeping noise reminding you that your keys are in the ignition when they're really not.. this happened to me once but has never occurred again so i didn't take my car in... But it's an easy fix for the service department.. Takes less than an hour.. But it is covered by your warranty..
