I have a 2011 Chevy Malibu LT and the key fob will lock and unlock everything the doors and the trunk and it will also automatically lock when put in gear... sometimes it will lock and unlock on its own while parked.
Neither driver side nor the passenger side door lock button will lock or unlock the doors... can someone please help with this issue..

Possibly the fob is in a pocket or purse that is close enough to the parked car, causing it to lock and unlock.

Do you have the personalization set to honk the horn when it locks and/or unlocks? If not, you may want to do so for a test. That way, when it locks and unlocks on its own, if the horn honks, you'll know it was commanded by a fob. If not, then you may have water intrusion in one or both front door lock switches.

Did you recently have tint or other work done that could have gotten liquid water on the doors?
