Go to the dealer and they might help you break the code for free. ask them if they are going to charge money though! because they are such a rip off.

1997 Jetta Drivers side door will not open.

One thing... If your last 3 doors works fine it's mean that problem is only in your drivers side. In VW like nickalxjoe wrote is air pump. So there might be an air leaking which you can hear. So if you can hear from where air running out try to fix this first.

Can't open the gas tank door.

Glad to provide assistance. Please do one more thing: Open the fuel door, and observe the small spring clip on the hinge of the fuel door. Make sure that it is sort-of wide. They do collapse over time, and then the door does not "pop". Thanks for choosing FIxYa for your solution; the graciousness of a FIxYa rating from you would be most appreciated. Thanks.
