First read the owner's manual. If you don't have an owner's manual for your car, get one off eBay. You'll be surprised what you can learn about your Porsche from the owner's manual. Then, look for a button on the dash that locks/unlocks the doors. Or look for a button near the door handle that locks/unlocks the door. It may be near your window switch and look like a second switch. Lastly, see if there's a slide that locks/unlocks the door.

Mk3 golf when central locking is activted the electric windows go


you have just found this out.it is a standard feature of all vw/audi/seat/skoda cars
unlock/hold key over,the windows will go down
lock/hold key over the windows will go up
then unlock the car with the remote,car reset.
sit in car with engine on,switch off engine(do not open any door)driver can open/close any window(you can even put your hand into window frame and it will rollback,all on its(not for fun)
if windows rollback after you have used button to close them you may have sticky runners/rubbers.
this is not in the hand book,tell all your friends.....only a german car.....

Psycho 99 VW Beetle - I think it may be possessed, because I roll the windows up, lock the doors and when I walk a few feet away - the car un-locks and the windows roll down automatically..HELP!!


apparently the VW beetle is an odd machine, there is some kind of module connected to the locks and windows, for instance if you have the door lock, and in the closed position then use the key to unlock and hold it in unlock position the window will roll down showing you that the lock control module is working. if I were you I would seriously consider taking it to a VW dealership and showing them the problem. they might be able to tell you whats wrong or suggest a good exorcist lol good luck

Fault in Central Locking


The barrel is easy to remove and based on replacing mine(the same problem with someone elses help) when a rat forced it with a screwdriver one night but failed except to damage 3 of my locks.Open the door and by the inside area of the door handle end theres a small torx screw, undo it a few turns and the smaller piece of the handle will be loose to the touch, turn a little more(screw wont come out fully) and remove the barrel in one piece.I stripped mine and using a breakers yard barrel i took the numbered little key slots inside and put them in the same code as mine to use the origional key.All key slots are numbered so write down your sequence when stripping down it's easy.

Electrics on my VW Passat TDI 2001


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.
