It sounds like your driver's side power door lock module is failing and causing this problem. Through my research I have found many others have experienced this problem and replaced the latch module.
I have heard of a pinched wire from the latch to the door exit area. But to fix this properly, you must replace the latch assy which is the latch/module. It wears more often on the driver's door as this gets the most use. So you are stating that when you try to open the door when the latch is unplugged, it causes the locs to act strange?
no when the door latch is not working ,nothing works ,and if you open the door manual the alarm goes off and you can not stop it .and you can not start the car,or the back tail gate,to open ,with the key you cannot work the central locking,and after a while by tampering with the unit you get it to work again.
So you are driving this with the door panel off? You seem like you have good mechanical abilities. Why don't you replace the driver's side door latch?
Do you want me to help you locate a latch?
no. i will replace the door latch or try to repair the switches and see how i go thank you.
