I had the same thing happen to mine. I would come back to the car and it would be unlocked. Forgetting that I locked it I would open the door only to have the alarm start going off. I fixed this by simply holding the key for a few seconds when locking it in the lock position. I wait until I hear all the locks close. When you do this you can feel the weight of the mechanism "fall" onto the key. I think what happens is some part wears out and doesnt pull the mechanism down and it just goes back up but the alarm gets activated simply because the key was in the locking position. Try it, its better than replacing something needlessly
