    Hello
    Do you mean the door lock pin is not lifting when you press the unlock button on the remote?
    Do you have to unlock the door with the key in the door lock to unlock the door before you can open it?

    Hi sandman, you need to be more specific with your question. I too had both models, so I should be able to assist. Rich.

    Hi Sandman, I'm still not too clear on the issue, however I think what you're describing my be a problem with the handle.. There's a metal rod that tends to snap on the inside of the handle, I can't remember the exact details right now, but all I remember is I had the same issue, and had to find a replacement door handle (The interior that sits inside the door), and then got the key barrel swapped out so I could still use the same key.

    Maybe that helps.. maybe it doesn't..

    hi guys sorry if im not too good at describing the problem. let me try further. the door does not open although the lock is disengaged when opening using the handle from the outside but is easy to open when using handle inside. to open the door i need to lift the door up towards the window which could mean the catch is not fully released.
