My friend's doors have been locking automatically on his 2012 OB Limited. They will lock with the keys out and they try to lock and intermittently click while driving. It's driving him crazy! All else is great. Any ideas?

I would
FIRST suspect remote. Try removing battery from remote and see if that cures it. (or carry the OTHER remote for awhile..it is unlikely that BOTH remotes are faulty)
SECOND suspect one of the door-switches to be flaky. Disconnect electrical plugs from door-switches and see if problem goes away.

I once left window open and it rained.... the door-switches were messed up after that.

Input from the remote should be disabled or ignored by the rcvr when the ignition is on (at least they are in my OB).
I'd look for a stuck relay or shorted door switch. I have only seen a stuck door lock relay only once, but it ran the battery of the car down.
