Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf

1 Answer

Can't open dpors on golf 1998 - could it be flat battery?

I tried to unlock my car this morning but nothing worked. There is no remote locking, you need to put key in door. I tried all the doors and the boot but locks did not flick up as usual. Could it be the battery?

Alarm went off, now the central locking doesn't work


use the car key itself from outside the vehicle with everything closed: use key in drivers door outside door lock and manually lock and unlock the door. check if fixed, may have to do a few times. i do believe the vehicle is in theft mode.

My car wouldn't start this morning, I've got it jump started but the windows which were all open now won't close?


hi sarah,i assume your battery is dead,hence the jump start,if,after charging/replacing the battery,your car windows still wont close reset by using the key in the door lock,(lock car and hold the key over,windows will go up.wait 30 secs then unlock/hold key over,windows will go down,then lock the car again/hold key over until all windows shut then wait 30 secs get in and start the car,you have just reset the system).
geoff.

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....

Golf gti left rear door locking system


it is probably your door lock has gone into safe mode.you need a new door lock.try using the lock/unlock button on your remote or on the drivers door button and gently tap the door handle with your hand while pressing the lock/unlock button,carefull not to dent your car.if that does not work,try disconnecting the cars battery for a few minutes,but note the vehicle might pick up fault codes which need a diagnostic machine to clear...good luck

ck if either pass or driver switches will work. the lock actuators are common to be bad, but, if they lock but wont unlock more likely a switch problem.
