    Are you sure, the car unlocks itself? I mean did you really see the
    blink a few times and the doors are getting open by themself. Or do you
    just find your car open in the morning?

    It sounds stupid, but I had a 306 from 2001. When I parked my car and
    pressed the key to close the door, another car, a Opel Corsa opened
    and blinked its indicators a few times, when this car was parked close to
    my 306. Pressing the same close button again, closed the Opel Corsa.
    I asked the dealer about it, he said the RF electronics is for a lot of cars
    the same, however it is exceptional, but possible that there are 2 keys with
    the same frequency. So mayby somebody is opening your car, when he is
    closing or opening his car?? If you don't have this problem by day, when
    you park your car where you work and than drive home, you can be sure
    that it might be somebody else his key, opening your car accidentily.

    Had a similar problem with a 306 Xld. In the end I traced it to
    intermittent wiring breaks in the driver's door harness between the
    chassis and the door. I managed to peel back the rubber cover enough
    to 'bridge' the broken wires. Apparently according to Pug dealer, it's
    a common problem on older (mine was 95) models. My 'fix' lastest well
    over a year when I traded it in for a later 306.
