2011 JGC - No Doors Will Lock (occasionally)

So the wife’s 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7Hemi has a locking problem.

It is intermittent. Been happening for a few weeks now. Started out of the blue.

It sometimes won’t lock any of doors at all with:
- either key fob
- either passenger or driver inside switch
- outside door handle switch
- above 15mph
- close, far, or inside the vehicle

Doesn’t matter if the car is parked or moving, door open or closed, it just sometimes refuses to lock ANY of the doors.

Usually after a few minutes of walk away leave it alone, it'll lock just fine using any of the normal means to lock it.

When you press the key fob the horn still honks as though it locked, but sometimes none of the doors will lock, sometimes they lock like normal.

Unlock is fine and works every time with no issues, windows are fine and work every time with no issues.

What could it be, where to start looking?

Thanks for any help in advance!!

Re: 2011 JGC - No Doors Will Lock (occasionally)

When I had my 2011 Laredo X, ( with Hemi ) I experienced the same thing, it lasted about a week. I then came out of a dinner date to discover all the windows were down and the doors were unlocked and the engine would not start. ( it wouldn't even crank ) I had it towed to the dealer and all they did was disconnect the battery for about ten minutes and when they re connected it all was well for the remaining 4 years that I had it ..... ??

I told them I wish I knew to do that, I wouldn't have had to wait for the tow ..
