Ok check the wiring between the door and frame of the car. Many times the connector just gets loose. Pull back the rubber seal and check. If it's been a while you might need to repair the harness as corrosion is not good.

2004 mazda 6 estate front driver side will not open with the key or fob


the 1st answer makes sense however since the fob isn't and the key isn't may possibly have a frozen (rusted) latch which may be freed up with some sort of penetrant oil, or just maybe the latch mechanism itself (lock actuator \) it bad ...the trim panel on the door will need to be rmoved to daignose

How do you use the emergency key (small black plastic key hidden inside the fob) to OPEN my 2008 Passat? Is there a place on the door SOMEWHERE TO PUT THE KEY. duh on me, I can't find it.


I found out what to do, there is a plastic covering on the door handle. Click that off and the use the key in the key fob to unlock the door. You can lock & unlock it.

My wife is stuck at the airport. the key fob on


On the driver's side door handle, there is a cap covering the key hole on the right side. On the bottom of the cap is a small ****. Use the valet key to pry it up and off. Then you may open the door, most likely sounding the alarm, so you will need to insert the remote in the ignition to stop the NOISE!!!! Hope this helps. This is how I lock my remote away when I go somewhere to run.

Front door locks on a 99 passat


You have the wrong KEY if it won't turn any locks.
You can use the KEY fob from another Passat.
The one you have was most likey not the original
and the car was reprogrammed to except that FOB.

The Fuse panel Is inside the DRIVES side.
Open the Driver door. Look at the side of the DAShboard.
THat Giant "B" Shapped plastic cover pops off.

Check the fuses...IF any are broken,black or no good.
REplace them

Hope this helps
