I have a 2014 V-coupe and a 2011 performance coupe. The outside drivers door release pad is easy to damage by applying too much pressure. Be gentle always, and patient when opening the door. There is a thin sheet metal contact layer that can be warped the wrong way. Also over time corrosion sets in and the goldish lands on the circuit board turn green from copper oxidation. This can be removed with care not to damage the rubber-like plastic covering that holds the pre-bent metal piece in place with tiny fragile barbs. Better to buy several for $40 and be done with it! Three screws and keeping the cable from disappering inside the door will do the trick.
