    Check the contacts in the doors. Maybe one of them is jammed or needs cleaning.

    Do a search of this forum, this issue comes up time and time again.

    Basically it's usually due to wear in the pin on the b-pillar that the lock wraps around - usually the drivers door. The proper way to fix it is to remove the door panel and adjust the switch in the door lock. My way was to wrap electrical tape around the b-pillar pin to thicken it and remove the slack.

    Hope this helps.
