    Car is a year old. Pushing the handle on the outside causes the motor to turn but the door doesnt pop open.
    Using the controls on the inside and touching the driver door causes the motor to turn but door doesnt pop open.

    Only want to open the door is from the inside by pulling the handle. Even that it isnt smooth.

    I have a SC appointment on Tuesday, 4 long days of inconvenience. Just thought maybe someone else had this experience and maybe had a home brew fix.

    Didn't see anything about resetting the doors for an issue like this in the reset/FAQ threads at the top of the forum (Model X).... Have you tried the normal reboot, just in case?

    That's about all I can think of, this is probably a microswitch or controller module issue, sorry.

    Just went through this exact issue. It was a failed actuator for the door. Took one day to order and get into SC and half day to replace. No charge.
