Lock Malfunction

Hello everyone,
Hope all is well and that all of your summers were excellent. What brings me to the forum today is a problem I have been having with my lock. A few weeks ago my windows were down a crack when it began to rain, I ran out to my car and put them up (but not before my doors got a tad wet). Ever since my doors now luck at random times and continue to do so while I am driving. Let me be clear, the locks make the sound they do when I manually hit the button on my key fob, however the locks do not visibly move up or down. Not only is the sound annoying while I drive, it has led to me locking my keys in the car with the car running on occasion (not fun at all!)....any help you could give me would be very appreciated.

Thank You,

I would try something simple first, like getting the switches out and cleaning thel all with an electrical contact cleaner. Lots of luck!

i had a similar problem on mine, but my lock would just make the sound when i press the button, even though the lock would not actually unlock or lock. best bet is to just take it to a dealer unless you are pretty good with electronics and can rip open the door and find whats up
