15 Nissan Altima s door locks .

Automatic door locks opening & closing constantly when making sharp turns & when temperature drops below 32 it happens more frequently! Thanks!

I'd probably find and replace the relay... but it could be one of your door actuators short circuiting... most likely driver side since it's used the most. You could see if a shot of electrical contact cleaner would do any good.

The BCM (body control module) controls lock function.
It's in the OBD II data stream.
I think the doors communicate with it on the data bus.
My guess would be a broken wire in the drivers door.

You could try sitting there and see if opening the door slowly causes an issue.
It is not going to be an easy problem to fix.

Nissan 15

Do I spray contact cleaner into doorlocks or do I have to remove door panel?

There's nothing to spray.

Something is telling your locks to lock and unlock..... correct ?
That would mean a connection problem between the manual lock/unlock buttons on the inside door.
If that car locks and unlocks all doors when you use the key outside then the door lock assy could be bad.
Otherwise the vehicle computer can demand lock and unlock depending on speed and programming.

One other thought.... a possible problem with the fob.
Are you sitting on it ?
Are the buttons getting stuck ?
Do you have a second one where you could swap and see if the problem stops ?

Nissan

Are u referring to using the key physically outside when locking or unlocking or the fob itself?

Using the key in the slot.
I know it works pressing the buttons on the fob.

when making sharp turns
Making a sharp turn means something is moving during the event, possible an electrical short in the wiring

Car is 7 years old so it's had time to cause a worn spot in a wire somewhere, where is going to be the tough part!
