Auto-electrician recommendation?

Hi everyone - My 993 has an intermittent habit of unlocking its doors 1 second after I lock them - who do we currently think understands electrics on older cars so might have a chance of  diagnosing/fixing electrical things?  
 
Thanks

    Hi Brian - all well here - hope you are same.  Not sure what's happening at SP Autobahn.  I tried to get him to do some other work on my car a few months ago and I had a good initial chat with him, but then found he didn't answer the phone.  But I persisted because I'd heard how good he is, so I dropped in one day but the place was all locked up including the main gates.  Then I was in Stirling again about a month ago so tried again and it was locked up except a side door was ajar so poked my head in.  It looked empty except one car under a dust sheet.  He was there but just said "I've decided to take a couple of months out".  That's all good as long as he gets back in action sometime.  May be one of these cases of a guy really good at doing the work but not interested in the business side of the operation.  Anyway I really hope he gets open again because he'd be ideal for me.
     
    Meanwhile I have to disconnect my battery to lock my car!
