Okay, I fixed it but I'm going to explain it here for anyone else who may have this problem.
So it turned out to be my door lock actuator in the driver side front door. The door lock actuator gets power from the ETWIS and it, in turn, sends the signal for whether the lock is up or down via continuity check. What really tipped me off is the behavior it exhibited when I unplugged it. It was almost as if continuity was restored for a brief moment, activating the power locks.
This was interesting. I'm still on the road to get the theft deterrent working again. The only thing I need to replace now is the hood switch. Another time, another place.
