2002 VW Cabrio Key question...and power lock question.

I have a 2002 VW Cabrio... My first question is... I really want to get one of those "groovy" flip keys w/ alarm that VW's have but don't want to spend $500 for it at the dealership.Would it work if I buy an uncut VW flip key on ebay? My other question is....I have power door locks with alarm my car car, but the power door locks are not working. They will only work manually (alarm is working fine). I had them checked out by a mechanic and it is not a fuse or anything, he suggested that there was some sort of programing it needed. i called VW and they want to charge me $200 just to see "why" is not working and then charge me more money. I really don't wanna do this...Have any ideas of what i could do?

    Same problem here with the power door locks not working. The car can be manually locked, but then the horn honks.

These cars are known for having switches in the door lock module fail. its an easy repair but an involved and time consuming job to access the unit in the door.

Doors on my 1996 vw cabrio will not lock and unlock with the key. The interior button will still lock and unlock the doors.


Is your key worn down? Perhaps you should have another key made and see if thats the problem.

On my 2002 vw cabrio, the drivers side front power window works intermittently - mostly won't work. Passenger side is fone as are the rear power windows. Is this a switch problem?


The most common problem with Cabrio auto windows is the Window regulator. Each window has it's own. My wife also owns a 2002 Cabrio, that had a mis-behaving window driver window and the passenger was locked in the up position. After inspecting the drivers window, I found one of the cable roller guides was broken, causing the cable to snag when using the window open / close, and resulting in the window seeming to have a mind of it's own. I had a local garage order the regulator for me, and then I disassembled the drivers door and installed the new regulator (problem is now solved).
The passenger window was bound up, I also had to remove the regulator and let loose the tension in the cable system by carefully removing the cover over the cable roller. This window works fine now as well.

Windows and power mirrors do not work - 2002 VW cabrio


if your window is stuck open you can close it from the outside. put the key in the door lock and turn it to the right until they all close. My cabrio is doing the same thing and that's how I closed mine.
