DRIVERS SIDE ELECTRIC DOOR LOCK

2003 Kia Optima

Electrical problem
2003 Kia Optima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 103, 00 miles

When the key is used to unlock the door, it immeadiatly locks back. Can't open it from the inside either. The door handle is like it is not catching any latch.

After many cycles it will eventually catch and remain unlocked so the door can be opened.

Any suggestions?

It is a walk-through of how I diagnosed and repaired the fault on my wife's car.
