Problems with Central Locking EL Futura

Hi we have a problem with our Central Locking. Especially on hot days when we use keyless entry the car keeps locking and unlocking several times by itself ( the button keeps going up and down), before the button stays in the open position and lets us get in the car. Sometimes it has even done this if we use the key.

We have taken the car to an Auto Electrician and he has done the following:

*Replaced the body control module with a second hand unit
*Replaced the door latch assembly which had a broken plastic part
*Tried a new motor
*Modified the wiring so that the central locking works off remote & dash
switch but not manually with dirves door. ( he has sinced put this back to factory standard)
*Put a second hand motor in the drives side and a new motor in the drivers side.

We have paid $500 getting these things done and the central locking is still doing the exact same thing as before with no change.

Has anyone any idea what might be the cause of this problem.
