How can you repair a 1984 Olds 98 automatic door locks that keep locking and unlocking every ten seconds or so when you turn the car on?

My guess is that it has an intermittent short. My 67 Toronado had a similar locking system, and when it acted odd it was this problem. If I recall the lock switch is in the door, right? Look for frayed or broken wires in the rubber connector between the door and door jamb shorting against something. Look at the switch? Is it worn out or shorted or wet? You can probably replace it fairly easily; they used the same switches in GM cars for years.

Auto manufacturers are not required to repair automatic seatbelts that are malfunctioning. Auto manufacturers are only required to make sure there is not a defect in the automatic seat belt mechanism.
