2008 Chevy Equinox. Approximately every 30-40s the vehicle makes a sound like the power locks are engaging. However they are not, the sound repeats 24/7. Eventually the battery dies. It is a new battery less than a year old. Wiring was changed in the doors about two years ago. Was hoping I could just pull a fuse and go old school manual locks, is this an option?

There is 3 relays and a fuse all inside fuse panel.

Pull one at a time and wait for sound when it goes away you got the right one.

If you pull fuse and relays you'll get a warning on the speedo display.

Also could be a programming issue, dealer level tools required.

• Door lock relay--Located in the instrument panel (I/P) fuse block and controls the locking of all doors and liftgate.
• Door unlock relay--Located in the I/P fuse block and controls the unlocking of the passenger doors and liftgate.
• Driver door unlock relay--Located in the I/P fuse block and controls the unlocking of the driver door.
• DR LCK 20 A fuse--Located in the I/P fuse block, supplies power to the relays
