Door lock mechanism
 
My driver door will make the unlocking sound when i use keylesa but wont "release" fully i guess you could say. But if i put my key in the door it will unlock fully for me to get in my car. Any ideas, suggestions, fixes IM all ears

Since you have a coupe it's probably a bad door lock actuator. The motor develops dead spot on the commutator and needs to be replaced.

Is there any temporary fix i can do to make it last a little longer?
