Anyone else having issues with their doors not opening with the first push of the unlock button? This happens around 90% of the time on my driver's door, but noticed all doors are doing it now. The latch will partially open at first press, which is not enough to fully free the door. I have to press the button a second time for the door to open.

The dealer adjusted the driver's door latch, but I am still encountering the issue. Thinking it may be a software or electrical problem?

That sounds like a mechanical problem to me. You say that the latch will "partially open" on first press, so it's getting the electrical signal to open just fine. But it sounds like something may be slightly out of alignment.
