01 Grand Cherokee lock issues

Our GC has a tendency to unlock itselfwhile in the driveway (lights flash and all). Recently I started hearing the locks going crazy while driving down the road. Anyone know how to fix this issue without doing the hit-and-miss replacement (replace this part then that part then another part until you finally find the right part that was wrong)? This damn thing is driving my wife nuts.

Might check the door boot wiring also just to be sure. Can't recall this particular symptom being diagnosed from the broken wires but never know.

X2 on wires running through the door post and the door. I've been into that wiring mess three times on my wife's 04 JGC fixing loose and broken wires.

Your passenger door module controls all locks in the vehicle. I'd start there. I'd probably try to get a good one from a junk yard. You'll also need to get the keyfob from that same WJ in order to unlock and lock your doors.

Keyfobs are married to the PDM of each vehicle. The PDM is the module with the unlock and window switch in it. I hope this helps you, buddy.
