SOURCE: 2006 Jetta TDI. Drivers door
I had what sounds like the same problem on a 2001 GTI VR6 and found that the solder joints on the driver's side door lock module were cracked. I removed the module and resoldered the joints. This corrected the remote functions, key in and lights on dinging and dome lights lighting when the door is opened. Still working on correcting the power mirrors but everything else is working again.
This URL has excellent instructions for removing the module. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107

I have a similar issue on a 2001 Jetta sedan. jandkat seems to be talking about the old system that VW used (pre-1998). To my knowledge there is no vacuum-based locks in the 2001 models. I've had the door completely apart and there are defiantly not any vacuum hoses. The only 100% for sure fix I have found is to replace the door latch mechanism. There are some other options but I'm not sure they would completely fix the issues you are having. Now for the bad news: you can only get this door latch mechanism from VW dealers. I have yet to find a place online or elsewhere that carries them. They are around $185 for the latching mechanism and if you don't want to install it, be prepared to pay another $200 or so in labor. If you do want to do it yourself, here is a great site that has step-by-step how to take a VW door apart: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107
Hope this helps

had same problem. my mechanic found the problem. you have two choices, first is the wiring in the door jam can be entirely replaced to the tune of 200 bucks just for the part! Second, you pull back the wire boot and repair the broken wires.
