    Seem to be having a problem with unlocking my passenger door with the keys! When i press to open it pops up half way but it dont seem to open from the outside!! when i press to the lock button of the keys, it seem's to lock with the popper moving down inline how its ment to. The driver side seems to be fine & no problem at all I would need to get into the car & open it by myself from the inside...

    has anyone been through this or experienced anything simular i would like to know/know it might be

    sounds like you have a solenoid problem, which is part of the door lock mechanism, be worth removing the door card and lubricating the mechanism and operating the locking while looking into the door.
