Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction...

Whenever we open or close the drivers door all of the locks will quickly half lock and unlock again.
Sometimes I can hear a ?relay? clicking around the steering column when this happens, other times it does not appear to affect the ?relay?.

When I unlock the car for the first time all the doors unlock but sometimes you will see all of the internal lock half lock and unlock itself again.

The car is a Nissan Wingroad 2004, Chasis is WFY11.

Thanks

I guess the relay could be the indicators?

Could be, but the indicators are not noticeably flashing, and are not showing as flashing on the dash.

When you say "open the door" does that refer to the actual door physically opening, or you actuating the door handle,

Just trying to track down whether it could be related to the physical door latch, or the handles ( inside and outside)

I have just spent the last 5 minutes trying to answer your question, and I am no longer able to get the car to play up.

But, since it use? to happen when we opened and closed the drivers door, I am going to guess that the door handle is not at fault.

One thing I have noticed, and just rectified, is that the rubber hood was worn on the door pillar. It was off centre and worn, so have positioned it correctly now.

Below is an example of what I mean, it is not a photo of my car.
