Most likely culprit is a torn or worn vacuum element. You will have to remove the trunk lining to access the vacuum element.

Once removed, you can test it using a vacuum pump such as a MityVac and see if it holds.

If I remember correctly, you need to close the gas door before you lock the car.

It's just a little pin that throws when you lock the car with the vacuum pump. It's almost always that vac pod right there inside the rear compartment. Easy to replace....
