    Got a 2003 Tiburon and the locks are going crazy. Sometimes they lock
    and unlock just fine. Others, You try to Unlock it, it will unlock for
    a second then lock itself right back up. Same if you try to lock it
    sometimes. Also, when you get in the car and start it, you can hear a
    relay clicking four or five more times after it has already locked
    itself. I was told it could be an old alarm on the car, but I looked
    yesterday and could not find any evidence of that. Anyone have any
    Ideas of what it could be or what I might should replace. Thanks for
    your help.

  2. IIRC, if one of the locks is sticking, it will cause the system to
    re-lock after the unlock button is pressed. The opposite could happen
    when locking or perhaps it would cause the multiple locking sounds that
    you're hearing. I would suggest removing the door panels and checking
    the locking mechanisms. Lubricate them if necessary.

    I've seen door latch/actuator failures on tiburon for whet seems to be
    water entry. I suspect you may have a short or poor contact. The
    actuator and latch come as one unit.
