Your post jogged my memory. On my 2000 Sonata, the front
passenger inside latch and outside keyhole activate all four door
locks. The driver's door key/latch doesn't control the other
locks. When you put your brain to this curiosity, you'll see the
sense in it.
I have had a situation that may be related. This has happened twice.
The scenario is that all the door locks are being activated to
lock. I can't unlock the driver's door because the system is
holding it. I was able to overcome this by holding the passenger
door key in the unlocked position and while holding it, opening
the door with the handle. At that point, the "robot" released the
other doors. Or something like that--it's been a few years. I
recall that the system voltage was low at the time, but I was
still able to start the car. I think that the battery was low
because the lock solenoids were all being continuously powered by
I've been suffering intermittents, too, especially my ability to
activate the rear windows on both sides from the driver's door
switches. The local window switches on the rear doors have never
given any trouble.
