I believe that a malfunctioning relay would be the problem, because its on its way out, and you need to giva that one a try. If not, then one of the wires that controls the switches or in between is exposed and is reacting in the aforementioned way (Not that im 100% sure, but im just using common sense)

Although my car is light years behind the times, I had a somewhat similar problem. I do not have any remote lock feature just the electric door locks. About two years ago I locked the doors and after I closed the door the locks would unlock automatically. It turned out to be a stuck contact behind the drivers side door lock faceplate. Ya neva' know?!

I checked fuses and relays this weekend. Found nothing wrong there. I've done some searching around here about the BCM and RFA. Sounds like there may be some sort of check that can be run on the BCM? I'm still not exactly sure where the BCM and RFA are at...under the dash on pass. side?
