Right this how it is I can lock the car no prob but wen I unlock it the pin bounces twice and stays down half way but the door will open
How ever drive the car and once the doors lock automatically when I stop and remove the key the pin just bounces twice but stays down and u can't open the door
If u keep pressing the button in the car I get lucky eventually an the door can be opened again the pin halfway up WTF

Hover the key in front of the key slot and all the doors should unlock.
You try starting the car? Sunroof exit, maybe? Hold the unlock button for ten seconds on the key fob. Maybe your battery is dead?

This happened to me. The passenger door should work fine :}

There is a problem with the door control unit, it fails often. You are looking at around $300 to get it replaced (first, take a look at your fuses, its maybe that simple).

You can change the setting so the doors don't lock automatically when you drive. That way you won't have to worry about trying to get out of a locked car that won't unlock until you fix it.

UPDATE:

So the dealership thought it was just the fuse but I guess my door lock actuators went out for both the driver and passneger. Total came to $695 for anyone that wants to know the cost. Obviously it varies for different dealership.
