Hi, can't say I've heard of that fix, never seen it documented anywhere. My n/s/r door has been dead for a month now, I'm still trying to work up the energy to replace the lock, good luck with yours. Phil

you can usually find lots of stuff on Youtube about various resets and other annoying problems.

It's a known fault that the electric motors in the lock fail causing intermittent locking /unlocking issues. Until you can get the motors or lock assemblies changed you may have to try locking multiple times to get all doors locked .
Complete lock assemblies are not that expensive on line . Fitting is not difficult if you are handy with the spanners . Plenty of " how to" vids on YouTube.
The re-setting referred to is the resetting of window one touch closing and elec hand brake if battery is disconnected. Having said that have changed three of my door locks without disconnecting battery .

If the car is locked I can open the door if it’s the first one I open but not afterwards ?? So it would seem that it’s out of sync with the other doors ?
The doors should all work together and only reason for not working is a weak motor in the lock. The other possible cause is the control module in the drivers door but unlikely.
If you relock and unlock a couple of times using the key fob it should get the lock to work but eventually will fail altogether. Motors are available separately and now cost around £15 a pair . Complete locks cost around £30 to £40 depending on which door.
