Yes, they get dirty and loose their contact. Spray some WD-40 into each latch till you find the door that is causing it.

WD40 was my first try, then tapping with hammer on latch bolts, Then took door apart, took out latch, tested its operation, oiled again, still no solution. New latch list price $365. Dealer cost $274. Still crossing my fingers, ( that didn't work either)
