    When i unlock or lock my car it unlocks for a second then locks/unlocks itself again, turning the key a second time cures it.

    Any idea what it is?

    I think you better check the wiring loom between the boot lid and the body. There are know problems that frayed wiring causes symptoms like this.

    You'll probably see it when you open the boot lid...mine is on the right hand side.
