Drivers door doesn't unlock in the winter except with key.

Now it's started getting colder again I've got the same problem where when I press the key fob button every door unlocks except mine. It locks fine with the fob just not open.

I had the same problem last winter and it's been fine all summer.

Has anyone got any advice on the most likely culprit and how easy/difficult it is to fix?

Thanks in advance.

Don’t have an answer but both front doors now do this for me, started with just the drivers.

Seems to suggest a central control issue more than an individual door lock then maybe.

mega common fault. Ive had three leons do this. My current was the drivers door would only open with the key. Super easy fix for this, did mine and a friends the other week. Takes 2mins all you need is a drill, a flat head , wd40 and a straw

I'd fire some silicone spray in along with the WD40. WD40 is ok for releasing and short term lubrication but it is prone to drying out. Silicone spray will provide longer lasting lubrication.
