Door lock

Hi, Recently the door lock on the drivers side seems to be playing up. When i press the unlock button the passenger door unlocks but the driver side lock only pops up half way and does not fully unlock the door so i have to physically insert the key into the door and turn and unlock it.

Could this have something to do with the remote having low battery? or is it the actual mechanism inside the door e.g. solenoid etc?
