98 Passat 1.8T 20V SE Door Doesn't Work!

Wen You Unlock The Doors, The Passnger Side Rear Door Doesn't Unlock. The Electric Windows Don't Go Up Or Down Either. The Door Doesn't Lock When The Doors Are Being Locked. Fom The Inside, If You Open The Handle, The Door Pin Will Go Up But The Door Doesn't Open From Insid. From Outside It'll Open A O.K. Just Bought The Car, What Could The Problem BE ?

Check the wiring between the door and the post - common problem is that these wires fray.

Good luck

Hi Mike i have a 2001 olds aurora with both rear doors and windows out of commission. Seems like neither is getting any power the windows don't go up or down and my keyless remote will not unlock or...


There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

chances are the spring that opens the flap is weak,just replace the spring.if it gets stuck shut pull away the carpet/trim from inside the trunk to get to the flap wire.

99 vw passat doors will not open with remote & only 1 door will unlock sometime. rear door locks don't work most of the time.


I had the same problem on my 1998 passat and the first thing i done is take off the drivers side controls for electric windows etc(first step to door card removal) and upon disconnecting the multisocket and putting it back on just to try before going ahead, everything worked again.My problem was N/S rear and O/S/F doors wont open/unlock and drivers front works with key but does not work central locking or window etc.Just a wipe with WD40 on a artist paintbrush to lube it and it was fine but i could see fine damp in the door(i live in Birmingham, U.K and it was snowing for a one month period) which i suspect was from the un-usual cold weather we had.I had lived in East Sussex prior so from warm to freezing was most likely the cause as the door lock froze and one door even flew open as the catch froze and the locked door appeared closed but just stuck closed, wd40 solved that also.Hope this helps.
