Hi,first post here after owning an FRV for 7 years. All of a sudden when trying to open the door with fob the locks click open and shut again within a second.

If quick enough you can open the door if timed right but that's it and the rest of the car stays shut,even locking you in the car until forcing the little lock part towards door to get out.

 

Any ideas what the problem is? It did stop for a day or two then came back again

It sounds like its "bouncing"

 

A spring would have snapped inside the lock mechanism and doesn't offer any more resistance inside the lock. A new lock would solve the problem in most cases. Sounds like the drivers lock because that's the master that tells the other locks to open.
