Central locking on 1998 passat 1.9 tdi not fully working
My problem is the central locking only works by putting key in the door, the light in the key flashes and so do the buttons but the remote not working as should also when pushing central locking from drivers side on the panel only the front driver's side and right passenger door works nothing on the left side of the car will lock.

Under the passenger side carpet there is an ECU for windows and doors,peel back the carpet and remove the plastic box it sits in look carefully at the wires and im sure you will find some broken repair these and problem fixed

My passat boot lock does the same because someone forced the lock one night, i replaced the lock barrel but from time to time the white plastic acctuator or pump if you want to call it that jams in the open position and needs a small tap with the boot lining removed to free it up.A replacement is only £23(U.K pounds) or just spay a little lubricant in the mechanism to free up the mostly dry plastic parts.
My 1998 passat does the same the other way around.Does the courtesey light on the bottom of the door work?, if not then it's a brown wire going to the courtesey light(the thicker of the 2) that has a break somewhere.I ran a short test lead(earthed to the body if i remember) to this direct and everything worked like new but the light would remain lit all the time with the door closed.These wires are all interlinked with the windows/central locking/door switch/courtesey light and forced door entry(not breaking of glass).The lazy way is to run a link like i did and remoe the bulb but get a auto electrician to advise you first.
Your central locking pump in the right rear of boot area behind light cluster may be faulty but if not check the rubber pipe between each door, open doors wide and in the big black rubber boot is the small rubber pipe.They perrish and cost peanuts to replace from any car parts shop.Do all doors regardless as one worn means all will go soon also.
check all the fuses on the fuse panel (located on the end of the dashboard). Behind the plastic door, drivers side. Then see if all the windows will go up and down; locking and unlocking the door with the key in the door lock. You have to hold the key in the unlock position to make this option work.
i had the same problem and i fixed it yesterday. you will have to strip the door down and remove the central locking unit. expect about a 3-4 hour job (at least). check this site out taligentx.com: Passat - Door Lock Mechanism Repair. its **** hot. mine had rotted inside, i tried to resolder it but it was to corroded i ended up soldering wires to the circuit board and splicing the into the loom on the door.(bit of a botch but it works great) you can get a second hand unit if you cant fix it for about £50/£60 or pay a garage about £300 to do it. believe me it was worth about 4hrs and gettin peed off to save the money. hope this helps. emptyed : )
i had a similar problem on the front doors .after taking it to a garage for a quote £ 180 i read into it and there are micro swithches in the locks so with a gentle tap with the hand the door unlocks . hope this helps it saved me the money
