Modern locks dont have a long life with electronics built in like a lazy solenoid which is part of lock,check first wiring loom at door for broken wires.

Yeah will either be the contact in the solenoid or a broken wire in the door harness because they go brittle over time and wear out the outer protection with years of doors opening and closing etc had a simular fault on a ford galaxy where the central locking was intermittent and every now n then the windows would wind down by themselves due to the wires shorting out :(y):
