Whenever the temperature outside starts to rise (>75F), my driver's side passenger door will not unlock using the key FOB. Once the car is unlocked I can reach in and do it manually. Below this temperature I have no issues, ever. I appreciate any all ideas/suggestions.

My 05 Toyota was doing this last summer. Rear doors. The heavy waxy lock grease had dried over the yrs and was really gummy. I had to give it a couple of good soakings with lock lube to get the stiff waxy grease loosened up.

I got the same issues as well. I have not linked to temperature though. It's only happened a few times over the last 6 months. I will pay close attention to the ambient temperature the next time it happens. It only occurs on the drivers side passenger door.
