i would get a wiring diagram and a dvom (digital volt ohm meter)
use the diagram to figure out what wires to test for. look for the ground wire. in ohm mode connect one lead to the ground and the other to the neg terminal on the bat. should read 0.0

now set it to vol= not vol~ find the positive wire and put a lead on that then leave the other on the neg term of the batt. press the button. you should see 12.6 volts

most likely you are looking for a bad ground or resistance in the wires or connections

Well i had the same problem but have a coupe. It only affected one door. This was all under warranty but they never did replace it or remove it. Just sprayed some pb blast in it and called it good. There is a lot of dust that gets up into that area. I would have to hit the unlock twice to get the mechanism to engage properly. After they sprayed it the problem went away mostly. But if they replaced the part there must be another problem.
