Hi Everyone, I have a Limited Ascent and have had zero issues with it until recently when it went for service. When I returned home I locked the car with the auto lock feature by touching the pad by the door handle - all doors locked as normal. The next day I touched the handle to enter the car and all doors unlocked EXCEPT the driver's side door. The car beeped 5 times and lights flashed. The only way to get in is to go around to the passenger door and reach across to unlock manually, or use the valet key. I can't find anything that tells me how to fix this. Any suggestions? (no, the battery is not low on the fob, yes, I tried the other fob and same thing). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm not sure where I saw it in the manual but there is a way to align which doors unlock when you hit the driver door...just the driver door or all the doors...

It's possible the lock/unlock actuator is sticking when trying to unlock. I'd bring it in and have it checked out. Five beeps for touching the handle is not a normal beep (if you were unlocking and opening the lift gate, that'd be different).

Hey, I just started having the same issue on my 2019 Ascent! How did you fix it?

oh no, This is an extension of our cancel culture. What did you do to your Ascent? 😈
I agree with Robert. While you can program which doors unlock, I doubt there is an option to not unlock the drivers door. It probably is stuck. At least that is my theory.

I have no doubt the dealer can readily deal with this.
