Passenger door won't unlock by pulling door handle

My passenger door has intermittently failed to unlock with the first pull of the inside door handle. I can unlock it with the console button and then the door opens without a problem. Has anyone else run into this problem? Is there something that I can easily lubricate, or will it need a new lock actuator eventually? Thanks!

Isn't this normal unless you make coding changes like I have done?

The OP is saying that his passenger door fails to unlock with the first pull, and not fails to open with the first pull, which is NOT normal. The door should unlock with the first pull.

OK, seems like I read that incorrectly...

Fixed itself for now. Seems to be temperature related. I'll see if it fails again this winter.

It could also be your remote battery. I've changed mine a couple of times already.
