This happened a couple days ago. I came out to the car in a parking lot just as rain was starting. Hit unlock, mirrors open, climate A/C starts and driver handle refuses to operate at all. My wife quickly gets in passenger seat as her door works normally. Rain begins harder as I hold unlock and open all widows, reach inside and begin pulling multiple times on that handle to full extension, but door still not opening. I hand wife the key as she slides over to roll up widnows before car gets soaked inside. She pushes the start button and I try exterior handle again, than it opens. Sitting in the car & dialing my corporate care rep in Michigan, and fuming at yet another new issue (this car has been in the shop about 25 days in less that 2 months and 1,500 miles of ownership for multiple probs) I have to leave a VM. Stopped at dealer on the way home, get the EV tech out to verify the problem and he says its probably a latch part that will have to be ordered or possibly software related. HOWEVER, he showed me that if you pull Hard enough, through the electronic release on the exterior handle, the handle will come all the way up and mechanically open the door. Drove home and no more problems 2 days later so far.
