power door locks gone haywire

When I unlock my door from the outside, the doors unlock, then automatically all lock again. Why would it do that?

I can't get into my trunk to get my laptop now! lol. and my key doesn't work in the trunk lock so I can't manually unlock it.

mine does the same-if the trunk button is sticky, and not fully popped out, the doors will automatically lock after you unlock them.

WD40 into the trunk lock cylinder, and around the whole trunk locking assembly once it was open.

WD40 will seize back up when it get really cold again. Best solution its COOLANT MIX WITH OIL. Spray that shit in there.

wd40 IS really a penetrating fluid rather then acting as a greese. It will dry out after, so please after use of wd40 to clean up and break free, use a silicon based spray or form type to protect it.
