[DML] Re: Unlocking issue

 I think I figured out what's causing the sporadic trouble. It seems
like tugging on the door handle to make sure the door is locked is the
culprit. If I just leave the handle go after locking, I never have a
problem unlocking, but if I tug on the handle once or twice, it acts
up when I go to unlock. I'll definitely try out your advice, David.
Thank you!!
