First dissconect the battery and try to turn door key with no voltage applied to vehicle. This will ensure it is not a damaged key. If door locks turn, reconnect battery. Hopefully during disconnect your electronic door locks de-energized. If keys don't work with battery disconnected then the fault doesn't have to do with your battery or electric locks at all. If they work with a disconnected battery and not with it connected you are have an electrical short, either in a switch it's self or the wiring to the door lock switches. In this case I recommend taking the vehicle to a shop for repairs, electrical can get in depth without proper tools and diagrams

I changed battery and now it dosnt work


You lost your program of the key module follow these instructions.

To Program a Remote for a VW
Put your good key in the ignition and turn to "ON", do not start the engine. Make sure all the remotes you want to use are present because they have to be programmed at the same time.
- Close the door and insert key #2 into the driver's side lock. Lock the door.
-Within 5 seconds of locking the door, press unlock 2 times on the new remote, key #2.
-(if this is remote #3, press unlock 3 times. if this is remote #4, press unlock 4 times).
-If there's a chirp or beep do not press it again. This means that the car has recognized the new keyless entry remote.
- Repeat with other remote or unlock the car and turn off - done.

Key remote wont work even with new batteries


The remote likely needs to be reprogramed. If you have both remotes you will need to take these to the dealer and have them reprogramed.

When I unlock my jeep the alarm goes off.


On some cars/trucks/SUV's, the alarm will go off if the car is unlocked with the key or if the door is opened (even from inside the car with the alarm set). Unlocking with a key does not always turn off a car alarm. Best advice, go to the dealership to get a new key-less entry remote, or get a new alarm installed with a remote to override the original alarm system.

Remote locks the doors but will not unlock doors or trunk Battery


It is entirely possible that the unlock button on the remote is worn such that it is not making contact. I've seen this happen many times, as the unlock button is pressed so much more than lock. You might try to reprogram the remote first before you look into getting a new remote. The procedure goes like this. Close and lock all doors Key in and out of the ignition 6 times, hazard lights should flash twice Turn key into accessory or on position Unlock and lock doors with drivers switch Press lock or unlock on remote Hazards should flash again to verify recognition turn key off  manually unlock door and then open and shut it.  you should then be able to test remote. 
The key to the procedure is doing step two quickly Hope this helps, if not you may need another remote or see dealer.
