Sounds to me like cheap relays. Try changing them out with better ones.

My passenger door solenoid stuck today with the latch in the open position.
It happened while I was cranking the car, I never touched the remote to open the door.
I noticed the smell of plastic burning and immediately disconnected the battery.
I pried the lower edge of the door panel up, fire extinguisher in hand.
I disconnected the solenoid which was red hot, the wires had not burned but the plastic on the door panel inner was sagging, this was making the smell.
I have the best relays replacing those that came with the door kit and they live in the engine compartment.
Bad news is the drivers door does not respond, maybe the control unit is fried as well.
Everything is fused but I cannot check it out until tomorrow, itīs dark here as I write this.
Iīll post a pic tomorrow.

Edit: donīt know the difference between a relay and solenoid
BTW, mine is a door kit VPA-80158DP, bought from Summit.

Hereīs apic of the burnt out/melted solenoid.

This could be the reason it stuck, the pull cable is corroded on this the driverīs side solenoid.

Here is a comparison, a 45lb with a 15lb solenoid.

This is the new solenoid assembly before it went into the door.

And this is how I bolted it in.

This is a view showing how it connected to the door latch.

As of right now it all works fine, but those big solenoids are very loud.

Yeah those are pretty loud, but you shouldn't have any problems with that one.
