For some reason my driver door sometimes doesn't unlocks. All other door unlocks except driver door. Does it probably 50% of the time. Does anyone have a clue what's wrong? It's pretty embarrassing. Please help.

Dealer told me that the outter door handle needs to be replaced, which consisted of a new handle with the transmitter in it and a painting to match your car. For me it was a $400+ job but the dealer did tell me if I didn't want to repair it to take the little round black rubber plug out and spray in the hole electrical contact cleaner. It works because minds was doing that about 50% of the time and now after 3 months mines doesn't do it at all now. The door works like new.
