xm central locking

The central locking now activates on its own
while driving along it opens and closes at rapid fire. Anyone know how to test which door lock might be faulty or does anyone know anything to help please.See previous posting.

I have got a ZX that's started doing this at the moment, sometimes it does it on it's own but will allways do it when the electric window on the passenger side is opened or closed, either from that side or from the drivers door makes no difference, it keeps firing the unlock pulse so it doesn't actually lock the doors, I suspect a bad earth or broken wire there somewhere.
