I've had the same exact problem as @lightning for a while now. I too have the 07 4d Sahara. I've haven't been able to remedy the problem and I've asked every mechanic I've ever come in contact and no one has a solution. Sorry that really didn't help.
I usually just keep hitting manual the door unlock button and at about the 10th time it finally kicks in and unlocks the doors. Then everything works well for a while, anywhere from 1-2 days to 1 month, then it happens again.
I have noticed that sometimes, if I manually unlock a door where the lock seems to be stuck halfway, then hit the unlock button it works correctly immediately. I'm suspecting that the problem is arising from a door lock plunger not moving the lock mechanism in and out all the way and the "system/computer" not knowing what to do. I've looked for frayed wires and loose connections but everything always checks out fine. The half-lock syndrome doesn't always happen with the same door, but it seems to be more prevalent in the rear doors.
Thanks @GoPrepared, but unfortunately '07s don't have steering wheel controls.
My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99¢ a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.
