Welcome to the forums.

You need to clarify what you are asking. What is the problem ?

When the vehicle is sitting there with the key turned off or while you are driving....... the door locks keep trying to unlock the doors.

Do you have an aftermarket alarm or remote starter installed ?

I doubt it's a remote issue with the factory fob as they usually won't work when the key is on.

You may have a problem in the BCM (body control module). Not a terribly easy unit to service. Easy to replace but expensive.

There is a feature on cars that automatically lock the doors based on time or distance... You can turn this feature off... Look in your manual....

It sounds that it could be either simple electrical related or BCM related. I would start with the door lock switches to confirm that one of them is not shorting out. If all the lock switches are tied into the driver door master switch you could try and disconnect this switch at that point and see if the issue stops. If so you can do a simple continuity check on each of the switches to see what is going on an isolate the problem switch. It does happen with some switches over time that through moisture penetration they can fail through corrosion, and in some manufacturers they have even proven to be a source of fire. If a disconnect to the switches does not isolate the problem then having the BCM read for any fault codes would be another step. That may need to take place at a dealer however as typical OBD2 scanners will not pull those codes.
