Sounds like the switch. If I'm not mistaken, the sensor is built into the switch.

Sounds like the switch. If I'm not mistaken, the sensor is built into the switch. It's probably shorting out.

If you are pushing the lock button; that is how it is supposed to work. If it just happens at anytime without pushing the button; then a wire could be worn through the insulation and is bouncing on metal & shorting out the switch causing it to work. Or as BohoMark said the switch its self could be bad. Check the wires going through the door from the door frame and pull the door panel and see what you see: bare wire? broken contact? bad switch? Fix as needed. Good Luck

thank you gentlemen, it seems its a wire somewhere, I changed the switch and its still acting up.
