occasional faint beep tone when doors lock... weird
 
Has anyone else noticed a faint beep noise when the doors lock? It sounds like it's coming from within the driver's side front door. It doesn't always do it, it's pretty random. Sometimes I hear it when the doors auto lock while driving or when locking via the key fob. I'm not complaining, it's just weird.

Same thing happens to me. It only happens in this scenario: the vehicle is running and has already auto-locked once, I unlock the doors without shutting the engine off, and get the vehicle above x RPM or x MPH (not sure which one it activates auto-lock).

EG: I leave the vehicle running while I pump gas. After I get back in and drive off, when the doors auto-lock, it'll make that beep.

I get it too. Used to happen on my durango but was louder. Dealer told me that the lock actuator/motor/mechanism was dieing on the durango. But that happened under warranty so they replaced. Seems to happen on my driver side door too in the WK. I believe drivers side lock gets the most work on a day to day basis. But since it is not consistent like it was in the durango, maybe just a lubrication issue?
