Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Check engine light is on, no codes thrown.  Goes out when headlights are turned on.
Escallated recently when driving, the door ajar warning illuminates intermittantly and the
automatic door locks lock and unlock rapidly.  This is temporarily relieved if either front
doir is opened and closed.
