Don't know. It's difficult to simulate that
Jaguar Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,

Do you hear any slight clicking or ticking noise from the door when you try to unlock?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I can lock all doors after exiting car and then lift driver side rear door handle and that works.Normal operation would not require me to lock all doors first
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No
Jaguar Mechanic: Gunvir Singh,
 replied 5 months ago

That symotom usually points towards a faulty door lock actuator or damaged linkage.

If you lock the vehicle will the driver side rear door unlock when pulling the outside handle?

Said that earlier
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 5 months ago

OK thanks. Can you tell me if that driver rear window works from the driver switch and from the driver rear switch?

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 5 months ago

WHen you unlock the vehicle by pulling the driver rear handle does the rest of the doors unlock?

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
but only if all doors are locked first (mirrors folded back)
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 5 months ago

Ok this is very strange since there is only one module that controls the door locking and it does not have any other separate circuits. Can I have the last six of your VIN so I can do some more research. It does sound like we may have an internal failure with the latch.
