When the car is locked by remote or by key, the electric lock motor keeps cycling about every 8 to 12 seconds and wears down the battery. If I remove the electric lock fuse, the car will not start (security system??).What would cause this re-cycling of the lock motor and what is the fix? Thanks

On of the lock actuators in the door are bad. Happens a lot on some Fords and Dodge Durango's but did do one on a CL for the same reason as you have.With the door panel removed inspect all the linkages and door lock assembly.
