The doors will not unlock with the remote key. The driver's door will unlock with the key inserted, but once inside the car, the passenger doors will still not unlock with the inside button or by pulling the unlock lever on each door. The levers do not work by pulling twice either. Very dangerous!!! I've had passengers who had to climb in and out over the console and into the back seats.
