My power locks have gone crazy. They will no longer work to lock or unlock the doors, but at times just start clicking and that button that locks and unlocks the door is jerking by itself. Is there a way to just disconnect these, since I don't have the $$ to get them fixed?

Sounds like a loose power or ground connection.

Pulling the fuse is an option, but there are likely other devices sharing the same circuit that will then cease to function.

Check the owner's manual to see exactly what is on that fuse before deciding whether or not to pull it.

I don't have an owners manual with my car. Is there anything online I can look at?

Did you ever find out the cause of your locks going haywire? Did you
remove any fuses or relay.

This is also happening to our 99 Saturn SL.

May sound strange but is your key worn? worn keys will allow the key to removed before the door lock cylinder is centered so the switch mounted to the door lock cylinder is partially engaged this will result in the condition you described.
