There is a message saying alarm service required and I have just noticed that the tailgate is not locking with the rest of the doors
Any help greatly appreciated

I have a 2004 VW Passat XLS. I tried to lock the doors with the remote and it did not work. I tried to manually lock the car by inserting the key in the door and it will not work. While inside the car I...

This is a wild guess, but it sounds like the switch that controls the door is constantly trying to open the door. It could be the door switch. Try locking the door with the door switch and then hold the lock slightly down to see if it is a mechanical failure in the switch. If not, the remote system may be sending the unlock. You could always pull the fuse for the automatic locks and see if the key will lock/unlock without problem. But then you'd never have remote entry.

Doors do not lock or unlock with the remote controil any more, the light and horn flashe,s when set, but the doors do not lock.

Several things can happen so do the following.
1. With your ear on the door press the remote to lock and unlock. If you hear a clicking sound in the doors open the door panels and see if the locking pins are not detached to the motor that activates them when when you lock/unlocks using the remote.

2. If there is no clicking sound then you are not getting power to the locking system in the doors. Trace wiring from the control unit to the doors.

3. If wiring from control to doors is OK then the control itself is bust. You need to have it repaired (if there are any good electronics techs in you area) or just get a new system installed.

Remote control no longer opens the lock

Sounds like the button to unlock doors on the fob is worn out. You can purchase a new one or used from your local recycle yard.

I had the exact same problem where I could lock the car remotely but I couldn't unlock it remotely after about 2 minutes. I was able to fix the problem by simply disconnecting the positive (red) side of the battery for a minute, and then reconnecting it.
