If the drivers door is unlocked great. I can lock the door with hands free, start the car with push button and do everything. What I can’t do, is open the drivers door form the outside if I have locked the car.
batteries in the fob are not dead.

Check the key battery voltage (must be at least 3 volts). I can tell when my key battery gets weak because the hatch will not open, i can move the battery to my passat’s remote and use it for another month or so. If you have a second key, check the battery voltage and try using that key.

We had the same problem, but I was using my whole hand to try to open the driver's door ( when my wife would let me drive it lol ) she discovered it only took one finger lightly on the handle and voila it worked . Maybe you are trying to hard ? Good luck .
