Databases are 11g  11.2.0.4
Several applications connect to the database - they changed the main account password.  Now some application keeps locking the account.  In 10G I would find out who did that in the listener log.  How do I find out who did this in 11G since the listener log is now an xml file.  Auditing is not turned on

There is still a text version.  Look under the trace folder.  The original listener.log file format is in there.

I looked in the trace directory - the only .log file there is the alert log

Look in the tnslsnr\trace folder under diag.

From a CMD prompt:
lsnrctl status

This will tell you where to look.

I found the listener.log but can't find the user who locked the account - how do I find that?
I can open a new question if I need to

No need for a new question.  It would be a duplicate.

I'll re-open this one so the discussion can continue.

In the original question you stated " In 10G I would find out who did that in the listener log"

I assumed you knew how to locate the information from the log.

You can see who made attempts from the listener log correct?

Other than that, I'm afraid you'll need to turn on auditing.
