CENTAL LOCKING PROBLEM

1998 Hyundai Sonata • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 272,000 miles

I have a Hyundai Sonata GL 2lt and the central locking system locks itself when the bonnet/hood. Boot/truck and doors are slammed shut. It does this intermittently, the passenger front seems to do it most often

Check the passenger front door lock actuator linkages/alignment and adjustment. It is most probably weak/loose and any vibrations would cause it to self lock.
