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.
