Need Help w/ Door Locks

Okay, i don't know if any of you can help me, but it's worth asking. My door locks are going crazy. When i'm driving, they're constantly locking and unlocking on thier own. It's irritating because when i get out of the car, they're still doing it. Makes it impossible to use my alarm. I'll set the alarm, then 3 seconds later it's going off cause the doors unlocked themselves. Any one ever had this problem?
P.S. It just started happening after i got my windows tinted (coincidence maybe)

I can hold down the lock button, and they'll still unlock.

you might have a short somewhere, or your alarm may need to be reset. You have a kill switch on your alarM?? Or just for the hell of it just reset your ECU you know... Disconnect the (negative) battery terminal. See what happens bro.

if it happened just after getting windows tinted, then its probably the switch not quite hooked up correctly or something of that nature. Pull the door panel off and take a look.

Yeah, i'll try that and see what happens. I was thinking i'll check my alarm connection to my door lock wire, see if maybe it's frayed or something.
