no idea, but my inclination would be a short or problem with the locking mechanism. Is it EVERY time, or most of the time?

probably a short or a bad relay. Don't know much about the locking mechanism, so I really don't know what to say.

Does the same thing on my 5 series.

Solution, lock the doors from the outside or hold the lock down for a few seconds.

i would suspect one of your front-door (master) lock actuators. you may have to open your front door trims and check on the linkage of the actuator to the car locks. it may be loose. it should be set in a way that when it is locked the actuator's link goes all the way inside (or the reverse). if the link stops halfway, it bounces back open.

i dont know if i am making enough sense,,,, ill try to get some illustrations.

here.. http://auto.consumerguide.com/auto/used/re...dex.cfm/id/2117

it says that if the central locking system unlocks itself after being locked or locks itself after being unlocked, the actuators could be defective or the trunk lock may need to be adjusted.

i am not quite sure about this.... if the problem is just the adjustment of the locks where the actuator rod is linked, forcing it down might just wear your actuators (bigger problem).
