I got a message on the dashboard that said key battery. I replaced the battery in my key fob. I usually lock the door using the button inside the car and then I close the door and all the doors are locked but now when I do that all the doors lock but my driver side door opens up again. In order to lock all the doors when I leave the car I have to use my key fob to lock and not the button inside the door. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Do you have the smart entry key or basic key fob? IF you have the smart entry system, the signal with new battery might be strong enough and you close enough that the system thinks the fob is IN the vehicle.

Lockout prevention system:​
Without smart entry: The doors and the tailgate cannot be locked when the key is in the ignition switch.​
With smart entry: The doors and the tailgate cannot be locked when the smart entry remote is inside the vehicle.​
Personally, with the smart entry system, I find it easier to just set it to auto-lock when I step out with the key (and engine off).

And even with the fob, as is on my 2010 Fit, pressing a button on the key fob is easier than pulling a handle to then press the lock button. And this is especially after I locked myself out of an Acura Legend I drove many years ago, because I used the door buttons.
