My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
The most common cause for the remote not operating like this here is a fault with the remote itself needing replaced.I have seen the remote fail several times in the past before and had to replace it for this issue here.
As for the manual lock not unlocking in some cases the lock cylinder itself can bind due to lack of use and spraying a small amount of lubricant into the lock cylinder itself will help free it up for it to then operate from there.If you have not tried this I would see if this allows the cylinder to then unlock with the key.If it does then I would have the remote checked/tested to see if it needs replaced to correct this issue.
Thanks Pete
