Locks..

How are my locks supposed to work?

Push the drivers side lock down and they all go down right?

If i push my driversside lock down they all go down then come back up, then if i do it again they will stay down, same thing if i use my alarm system remote..

Locks bouncing??? Normally a sign you've left a door or the trunk open and tried to lock the car. Other possibility is that 1 of the latch microswitches is beginning to fail.

Might be worth a look...

You guys have a button to lock the door? Well that's a bit unfair...

On my car if the driver door is closed but any others are open and i push down on the lock then the whole car locks, just whatever is open stays unlocked. If the driver door is open then it bounces back up. But if the passenger door is open and I push down on the lock it stays down...is there something wrong with my passenger door lock?

+1 for that. I would guess it is a switch/latch/sensor in one of your doors or trunk isn't working correctly.

Yes the trunk does have an actuator. trunk and fuel door should lock with the rest of the car doors.
