Exclamation Vacum Door Lock System


I am noticing that when I lock/unlock my car that there is a loud vacum sound that lasts around 10 to 15 seconds and it seems to take longer for the console lock to release.

When I had my car in the MD dealer in late Jan of this year for the tail light recall. I had the SA get in my car and listen to it and he said that sometimes something can sometimes put pressure on it to make it sound but he found nothing wrong with it. Since then, the vacum sound has grown louder and longer over time for things to lock/unlock. This problem can be heard in the car, outside the car and when trunk is open.

Has anyone had this problem? Is the pump going out slowly?

Any help or suggestions would be great.....Thanks
