Vito Sliding Door Won't Open From Outside

My 2007 Vito has a a few annoying issues which i want to work my way through!

One of which being the passenger side sliding door doesn't open from the outside,

When i unlock the van with the fob the door doesn't open from the outside, and if i go in the back and try open it, the door opens! so if i then close it and open it from the outside it will open no problems until i lock and unlock the van again! occasionally it will open from the outside after unlocking but its pain!

What do i need to do?

Thanks

Wildcard answer but on the inside of the sliding door there isn't a latch/button resembling a sort of reverse child lock is there?

Sounds like the unlock part of the central locking isn't working on that door. Vitos don't have deadlocks so it will always open from the inside. Try cleaning the contacts on the forward pillar

My last vito did this after I tried to open the side door when it was frozen shut, turned out that I had strained the rod / mechanism from the handle
