2001 Pontiac Montana back door locks work sporadically The automatic locks on the back doors are not always operating. If I lock the van I have to check to see if they locked. Sometimes they do but most of the time they don't. Same thing with unlocking the doors when the ignition is turned off sometimes they unlock and other times they don'. How can I fix this??
