Door locks is most likely the the relays for the locks. If you have auto for the headlights to could be the light module if you don't have auto lights then it is the light switch itself.

I had the same thing with my grand prix. I work nights and people would tell me my lights were on in the parking lot. I also had the locks clicking while it sat turned off and when driving. I removed the battery out off the eye fob and it stopped. I don't know if it was weak and it was giving signals or what.
