Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Central locking system unstable when driving

I own a Golf -4 - 2000 model , the central locking is designed to lock when you pull away automatically , however when i pull away , the system locks and unlocks every time i stop or pull away , sometime one of the doors locks leaving the other three unlocked , in other instances , two doors are locked and the other two un locked. At no point are all four doors.

Is there away of finding the faulrt and fixing the problem?

Thankyou

Roy

    Same problem here, but only my front left door unlocks after they all have locked. My fathers 2001 golf 4 has the exact same problem as mine. I would have thought the terminal was dirty and wasn't making contact. I don't know the solution to this though, but I don't think the previous solution solves this

    Left rear door on 2001 Golf locks and unlocks while driving. All other locks work fine. Seems like the automatic locking system keeps activating and de-activating for just that one door

You need to have a code read of the central convenience that will tell you your problem are you in the usa ? i ask because the antihijack feature is not standard in th uk but we do activate it for people that want it doing..

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

My central locking on my 1997 vw golf just stopped working it sounded like it was trying to work but now does nothing. also the gas tank cover wont open as its stuck on lock...any advice on what i can try?


the gas flap is operated with the central locking,stand at rear of car with tailgate open,just inside to the right,under the floormat you will find the central locking pump.but first renew the batteries in the remotes then unlock the car with the key and hold the key over for 30 secs, the windows may go down,
then lock the car with the key and hold over for 30 secs,the windows may go up and the sunroof,if fitted will close,then unlock with remote button held down for 30 secs,this will reset alarm/central locking.
if you need to get to gas flap, pull carpet away in boot behind flap area and pull wire to unlock....

Central locking not working. have looked at fuse-seems ok. have changed vacuem pump-still inactive. any ideas please is there a relay?


there are 2 types of central locking, electric or vacuum, normally germans may use the vacuum on some designs, the other german designs and most of the rest of automotive engineering use electric.  If it used to make a distinct clunk when it was working, it is electric,  the vacuum systems are neat in that the locking occurs with almost no sound.
Get a haynes manual for your car, about $20 from local parst store, amazon, or haynes.com.  It will detail the components in the system, help diagnosis the problem, and show you how to fix it !
There is a vacuum reservoir in many german cars of this genre,  it usually looks like a black plastic case you that you could carry cue balls in (triagular arangement of spheres).   It is indeed a bizarre design if it has a vacuum pump !! most of the time these systems use manifold vacuum from the engine ... and then store this in the triangular sphere vacuum reservoir.   

Please  rate all solutions.

Golf 1.4 99 ..central locking not working


Can you operate the central locking once inside the car? Does your interior light come on when you open the drivers side door? If those are both the case, then you may have a bad door microswitch. If your car can't detect your drivers side door being closed, the central locking will not operate from the keyfob. If the microswitch is bad, you may need to take it to a garage to have it serviced as the procedure is complicated. See this website for details:
