When my car locks, I get a rapid machine gun sound. Has anybody got any ideas how I can fix it?

BTW I'm very technical, so answers in simple language please!:doh:

Sounds like a door locking solenoid contacts are burnt so it bounces instead of opening or closing. How loud is it and is it in just one door?
