2015 MS door opens by itself

So I have a 2015 S P90D. Recently my rear passenger side door has been acting strange. Anytime my door handles initially present, the handle goes fully to 100% and opens by itself. So any time I unlock the car or put it in park, the door keeps opening. Now if I close the door, it retracts the the standard, 90%. This is happing constantly. It’s dangerous and annoying. Anyone have any ideas? I know there’s a micro switch that it should not touch until opening manually but I don’t really know what I’m looking for or if it’s easy enough to try on my own.
I have a 2019 doing the same thing with the drivers door. Tesla wants $400 to replace the entire handle. I hafto lock the doors to keep it from opening itself... Should be a recall in my opinion.
got It fixed myself. I replaced the microchips (eBay for $30) and then backed the contact screw on the right side out (to the left) 2 turns (which was probably all I needed to do). Pretty easy once I figured it out.
