735i More lock issues. help please

I'm sure this is in the forums or my manual some where. I just cant seem to find it. So, any direction would be appreciated.

My 735 drivers door lock seems to work just fine with one exception. When I lock the doors with the key,, they immediately unlock. When I lock them a second time, everything works fine. I tried reading the re-sync directions but it didnt seem to work. Is there anything else that would cause this? I did just replace the front drivers door handle. But, this WAS happening before that.

Thanks in advance for any help/advice!
