the 97 outbacks and GTs only unlock the driver door when you unlock with the key.
i don't know about the 96 outbacks, but my guess is they are like the 97.
do you have a separate lock / unlock button on the front doors?
does it unlock all the doors when you operate it?
if both are yes then they are working correctly.

The panel is easy to remove. A small cover behind the release handle with a philips head screw behind it, a cover about the size of a quarter under the door pull handle with a large philips head behind it. Remove the gusset cover on the upper front corner (the black triangle), or tweeter cover and tweeter. The flat gusset cover you may need to pry off with a flat screwdriver. The tweeter cover should just pop off with your fingers. Then pull the edges of the panel sharply to pop the clips loose all the way around the panel (there are about 8 - 10). The middle one in the front is a press-through design and will probably go flying so cover it with your free hand to catch it.
Grab the rear edge and pull up and out until the tabs clear the top of the inner door skin, now rotate the rear edge down and front edge up slightly while pulling out to dislodge the panel from the release handle.
Takes less than a minute once you've done it a few times.
