Default Auto Locking Doors on Vector, Then Alarm Keeps Going Off

I have a 2003 Vector and lately I've noticed the doors auto lock when I leave it. It seems random. Is there a way to turn it off since lately the alarm keeps going off in my garage for no apparent reason. Thanks.

far as i'm aware the 9-3ss doesn't have this feature,sounds like you have a fault some where.

i bought a used 03 vector that did the same thing its gone now, not sure which one of these things did it, but i:
Replaced battery
Replaced driver door switch pack (turned out it had water damage)
used a tech II to pair the new switch to the car.

No problems now

Mine auto locks sometimes. Seems like it only does it if the key is close by, like when I'm working on the car or washing it and I have the key on me. Probably coincidence, but I can leave it for hours unlocked otherwise and it doesn't auto lock.

I've noticed this sometimes when I am washing it at the handheld wash. It randomly locks and then the alarm goes off because it senses vibration from the washing. It doesn't do it every time. Weird.

Default Auto Lock

I just unhooked the battery overnight and the problem went away. Sometimes it just needs a reset.
