Angry Doors lock & unlock for no reason

My doors lock and unlock for no reason. Usually when I accelerate or hit the breaks they will all lock. Sometimes I take off and the doors will lock when I hit 15 MPH and then unlock for no reason. I have tried to disable that future (15 mph) but that doesn’t help
A few times when the car is not running and off I will close the rear hatch and all the doors will lock. WHY???

My wife reported that once the doors locked and unlocked on their own. It was about the same time the trip odometer kept resetting back to zero. What solved the problem was replacing the car battery. It either had a short or was just weak.

Hope this helps.
