Lock out

Anybody else been locked out of their FR3? The door lock started acting up yesterday and wouldn't let me out. Finally after fighting it the lock released and I was able to open the door. Today it wouldn't let me in and after toying with it for half an hour I had to call roadside assistance to come open it up.

Could the problem be one of those defective locks there was a recall on a while ago?
