You are not telling me where you live, but here are some ideas.
Door locks have "always been" inside the doors of the car, and as such, cannot be easily lubricated at all.
From the factory, they have no lubrication, are supposed to "just work" for 20 years or so.
I would be highly suspicious that you may live where there is ice and snow, which can cause rust or corrosion inside the doors, and may make your locks stick . Fixing would include taking each door apart and lubricating the mechanisms. That is a big job.
Be blessed.

Jeep liberty 2006 power lock will lock but not unlock


there are 3 ways to lock.
key metal
on door switches
and the FOB, RKE.

so is this a fob question? key fob? only failure???????
did you know that many fob modes are PROgrammable?
the operators guide tells you how to do that.
did you try both fobs, that came with car new., if not why not?
did you replace the 8 year old fob batteries, no , why not now.?

on my 08 (for example) :
can program it to only open drivers door. or all.
and autolock feature off or on.

on my other car all was worked fine. then drives door failed
to open (all 3 fobs fail, one is new) the door solenoid was bad.
$100 part. now fixed, by me.
so do all fobs fail. if in fact this is a FOB question
RKE (called remote key entry by jeep)

i have 4 fobs for my jeep now. you must have 2 good keys.
to make a 3rd by self.
so keep 2 , never ever used. to be self sufficient.
this is not a door issue, above 3 lines, its a not getting stranded issue.

Ford falcon locks


Dude, the same thing happened with my EL falcon. It turned out to be the key fob! The buttons were sometimes sticking and all of a sudden it would re-lock. Ususally it would unlock then immediately relock. Leaving no time to get into the the car. Sometimes we would be driving and the Alarm would go off without touching a thing. I ditched the Key Fob and all was well again.
I hope this helps
