Thank you for using just answer.


The problem with your truck is the door ajar switch is loose or bad.99% of the time they are bad.When the switch goes bad the computer cannot read if the door is closed or shut.This is why the doors keep locking and unlocking because it continues to send false signals.The ajar sensor is probably the drivers side because thats the main door that is used the most.There are ony two ways to find the correct door.One is to replace one at a time until fixed or take to dealership so the computer can tell which door it is
