SOURCE: 99 vw passat doors will not open with remote &

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.

SOURCE: my 05 passat will not open some doors sometimes, will open all other times and also will lock all doors except driver door sometimes but other times will lock them all please help? was wondering if it

It isn't a key problem, but it's most likely to be a door actuator (motor) issue, if indeed it is an issue.
Many cars these days are fitted with a two stage lock program. This means that the first time the key activates the 'open' command then only the driver's door opens. You have to press the key fob twice to have all the doors open. This is a security feature to prevent potential criminals from breaking in other doors and snatching valuables when you activate the locks. So now the driver has control over one door or all doors, depending on their requirement. On these types of modern systems there is often a method of setting the program to open one then all with the single key press, or all doors at the same time with one key press.
Anyway, just try one press and see if it opens the driver door only and then try two presses to see if it opens the other doors. If it works this way, then it is supposed to work this way.

2006 passat drivers side door locks wont open from outside when unlocked using fob


It sounds like you might have two door latches that are faulty.... But you can try disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes and reconnect to see if that solves it. Sometimes VW's need their memory reset, have seen weird problems happen and this fixes it a lot of the time.

2000 vw passat door latch


Sounds like something came loose on inside of door. People who lock there keys in thier car always try to unlock the doors with coat hangers and all kinds of stuff. Sometimes it knocks the clips loose inside the door and causes handle to not open door. Sometime they just wear out. I believe your going to have to take the inside door panel off to fix it..

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.

2004 vw beetle drivers side window does not work with key fob or door switch and does not go down slightly when door is open or convertible top is lowered. all other windows work. door locks will not work...


Open the drivers side door and see if you can peel back the covering on the wires going into the door. Sometimes from opening and closing the door so much 1 or more of the wires break or rub bear and contact each other or something else. Check if all the wires are good.

My car is a VW Polo 2005 the problem is, drivers lock doesnt open with remote control, just with key and pulling the interior handle, any ideas?


The tiny motor that would automatically unlock the door with the remote is burnt out. It needs to be replaced. You can take it to a gas station garage that can usually fix it for a little cheaper than a VW Dealership BUT, sometimes you just have to take it to a VW Dealership because some areas of the car need "keys" to unlock certain panels of the car. VW is tricky like that. Good Luck!

VW 2000 New Beetle door sensor/car alarm goes off when doors open.


I found a thread - http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461 that details the repair of the soldering on the key lock door module. Our 2000 new beetle had the same issue. Also sometimes it refused to start. Soldering pins fixed it all.

Also see http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107 for releasing window from track, And door handle from inner panel.

I ripped the door apart and re-solderd the pins. I only had one pin with cracked solder but two others looked thin so I did them while I was in there. It's about a four or five hour project if you have all the tools. (8mm triple square also called an 8mm internal was the hardest to find - Also needed Torx T8 T10 T15 and T30 plus Philips Screw Driver. )
Project is difficult but not too bad for the mechanically inclined. A 7 on a scale of 10.
Since re-soldering pins - no more issues! My guess is that a VW dealer would get $200 for a new moduel plus 5 hours of service time for this gig - easily a $500 to $1000 bill. My cost - several new tools - about $25.00.
