Walk away door locks. Only works 3 our of 4 times.

Tesla can't solve the problem on my 2021 Plaid. Walk away door locks on my 2014 P85D never failed.
On the new car, when I walk away, it will only lock 3 out of 4 times. Is it only me who has this problem? I've tried the fob and the phone. It seems more reliable when I use the phone as a key.

On the times when it isnt locking, is it also remaining "on", meaning, radio playing still, HVAC still on, exterior lights may be on...?

Thats the issue Im having intermittently. Just opened a ticket. (2022 LR Model S). Research on the forum seems to point to drivers seat occupancy sensor for my case.
