Two pulls on handle (Comfort Access)

Hi, can anyone help please? I have Comfort Access which has been working fine on three doors, but since the car came back from body repairs, the two nearside handles need a second pull to open the door (first pull only unlocks the car). Driver's door needs just the one pull. It's not that I'm pulling the handle too quickly. Any ideas on how to fix, or why it should have happened when they had the car? Battery disconnected?

Another problem it came back with is the steering column not going up/down. I've seen the thread about a fix, but, again, strange that this happened suddenly when they had the car. Could it be related?

Offside rear handle has never worked and doesn't affect the other doors.

Not sure what you mean by "rear offside door has never worked". If you mean the door will not open manually then I can suggest from a problem I had. My drivers side rear door suddenly stopped working from the inside, everything else worked fine. It turned out to be the cable from the handle to the latch had broken.

Like you I have recently noticed that my comfort access doors are not working like they used to, sometimes they operate just fine and other times they need a second pull. I thought maybe I was blocking the signal from the key control, maybe it's more than that....
