Default issue with unlocking doors (drivers side)..hlp pls!

Hi gang, it's been almost a month now that this started. if i want to lock/unlock with key fob, it works. If i want to do the same on pass. side door, no problem. On the drivers side door, i can only lock the doors but not unlock. It's very strange. I took out and opened the control box, sprayed contact cleaner…nothing. I even got a used control box, exact same thing.
I'm thinking now that it might be wiring harness or electrical issue. Anyone experience the same thing?
I was thinking of maybe doing a battery unplug, do reset the computer inside?

The only thing that comes to mind is that around the same time it started doing this, 3 times i couldn't unlock door with fob, so i used the key and alarm rang. could it have "locked" the door system maybe?

It is an old thread, how did you solve your problem?

Look what problem I've got on Outlander 2013 (<3y old):

I press the lock button on my fob. The tail gate+3doors lock except the driver door. You pool a handle and it opens up. The lights blink which usually is a confirmation that all doors are properly closed.

Sometimes it works sometime not. People say I have to check driver door cabling for poor contact/connection. Remarkably this fault appear after my recent 3rd servicing where ECU and probably ETACS software has been updated by the workshop.
