Locks & Deadlocking

Hi all,

I'm aware I can choose to lock or dead lock my car. However, when I choose to deadlock, then come to unlock the car, the passenger door won't unlock - I have to open it from inside, whereas all other doors work fine. It sometimes has the revere problem when deadlocking too - the passenger door won't lock, but only sometimes.

If I lock the car without deadlocking, the passenger door will unlock fine along with all other doors.

Now, when the car is unlocked, there's a screech that comes from the drivers locking mechanism. Could this be the root cause, or am I likely to be looking at 2 different faults? The garage had told me that the central locking motor is whats causing the noise?

Currently in dr. sarf's garage:
