The locks on my 2005 Sonata automatically lock a few seconds or minutes after being unlocked. Any ideas why and what can be done to correct it?

Yes, that is a security feature. If you dint opeN the car door after hitting the unlock on the key fob, it will relock the doors thinking that you accidentally hit the unlock button on the key fob.
