    Bad microswitches or actuator.

    Doesn’t open from the inside or outside. The lock is working fine, going up and down with the touch of the button. I need to be able to get something inside the door to release the latch.

    Problem solved. I was able to get into the door by pulling the top of the panel away and partially remove the weatherstripping. I fished around in there with a clothes hanger. I’m not sure what I touched but I was able to open the door and now it’s all working perfect.

    Possibly a loose connection was jostled. Might be worth popping off the inside door panel (it's easy) and check to make sure all connections are tight.
