could be that the rods that connect the handle to the actuator are different lengths from ED to EL? Meaning that when you fit EL handles you may also need to fit EL actuator rods as well :?:

i had the same problem with my EB. I stopped using the remote and started using the key to lock it and the problem stopped. Only done it a couple of times now in the last 2 years, as compared to several times a week b4.

Did you put the buttons back on when the doors were locked? If not, the buttons are too far down on one of the front doors.
