Likewise, hitting the power locks switch in the door panel makes a click that I can hear both in the door panels, and in the hatch, but the doors remain locked. The hatch button doesn't open the hatch, I have to use the key.

What's likely going on here? Should I check the fuses?
I would check the locks themselves , maybe all 3 are dried out and sticky.

a security feature of the car is hampering the remotes abilities.
