This just started this afternoon. I was leaving the store to come home, and as I cranked the car and shifted into reverse the power locks went down… then up… then down… then up… then up again… then up again… etc. So I pulled into the parking space and turned it off and then on again, hoping it was just some intermittent issue. No such luck.
Since I was just two miles from home I figured I’d suck it up until I got to the house. About halfway home my car decided it wanted to shift into neutral gear (it was making the same noise you’d get if you manually shifted the car into neutral)… then back into drive… then into neutral… then into drive…it was doing it with the same rhythm as the door locks.
Then the dinging started. As in, a “your door is ajar” ding rather than a “there’s a loose bit of metal” ding. It would ding but then stop in mid-ding, kind of like a “DINstop DING DING DING DINstop”. At about this time I started hearing a clicking noise coming from somewhere under my dashboard.
Thankfully I was almost home, otherwise I’d have had to pull into a parking lot and call my family to come get me.
Any ideas on this? I did some googling, and although I found several people who had similar problems, I didn’t really find any answers.
