Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
Yesterday I pressed the unlock button on my key fob and the fuel door suddenly opened. As I explored the problem further I found that both the lock and unluck buttons on the key fob caused the fuel door to open. Also, opening the drivers door causes the fuel door to open. When I begin driving, and the doors automatically lock, the fuel door opens. At the same time this began, the drivers window stopped working. I can hear the motor running, but the window will not come down. All the other windows in the car work without problem. Any and all suggestion would be appreciated.
Look for a short in the wiring harness in the door. The wires from the door lead to the convenience module (controls the doors and windows and some other settings including remote fob) that is under the dash. It sounds like some wires are crossed. VWs are also notorious for having problems with window regulators. They make the windows go up and down and are in the doors. Something might have happen to that and it cause a short. VW just extended the warranty on the window regulators to seven years because of these problems so you should be able to take it to a dealer and not get charged (this is in the U.S. at least, don't know about the rest of the world). The extended warrranty was not limited to original owners but you might want to ask the service people about it first.
