Often the door has to be pushed against a spring to close so when the release is pulled the door springs open a small distance
Designs that don't include a spring usually include a rubber buffer that must be compressed slightly to close the door. It isn't unusual for the rubber buffer to be left lying on a gas station forecourt though I have seen designs that include adjustable buffers that won't stay where they are adjusted to and need a spot of glue.
Assuming this is a left hand drive Volkswagen, your fuse box is located under the steering column on left side, a small storage compartment with a square button, turn that button and pull down and storage compartment will flip down
I assume the fuse box locations for a 1997 Olds 88 would be the same as for a 1999 - which are: (1) In the lower cover panel below the instrument cluster just left of the steering column - with a snap-off cover. (2) Passenger side 'kick panel' - side panel under the dashboard just forward of the door - lower cover panel underneath the dashboard and next to the firewall must first be removed. (3) Under the hood on passenger side on the firewall - need to remove black plastic outer cover (1/4 turn finger latches) then two black plastic inner covers (side spring latches).
Lift the carpet ,on the floor between the seats to locate 2 more bolts. When removed the cover is kinda hard to remove.Lift bottom of cover to pull back the front and try to put the front part of cover to pasenger seat. Then roll the cover over and out the door
Look to the lower left corner of the dash near the steering column,you will have a a small little storage compartment that flips open and lifts up and out to remove,your fuse panel is located there. You also have another fuse and relay center in the engine compartment next to the battery.
In the 2006 Model the Cigarette lighter is located behind the small compartment on the drivers side dashboard left of the steering wheel. Simply lower the compartment door (Fuse box cover) and remove it to access the fuses. Jul 2010
Hi Guest, I had this problem as well, and found the fix is actually quite easy. My issue was with the door sensor on the drivers door, but it could be any of the door sensors I imagine. The way I checked was by rolling down all the windows and closing all the doors and locking with the remote, engaging the alarm. Next, open each door individually through the rolled down window; if the alarm sounds then the door sensor is working. To fix: First you need to turn off your vehicle. Next, below and to the left of the steering column is a small storage compartment. Open this up and press the sides together, the door should come out. Remove the storage compartment door and reach inside to the left, where you will find the sensor that tells your car if the door is open or closed. Remove the sensor and inside you'll find three pins which have either accumulated grease and grime or have shifted out of position. Clean them off or reposition them so that you have a solid connection and press in the button to check that your lights go off (should take 20 seconds). If the light goes out (make sure you have your dome light positioned to "door") then your problem should be fixed. Hoped this helps you and others!
I just bought a 1996 328iC (the "C" is for convertible). I bought the car with the knowledge that the roof needed a motor replacement (~$300 for the part alone + ~1-2 hours labor) and that I would need to open and close the roof manually if I wanted to take advantage of the convertible part of the car.
After some trial and error, I figured it out and now it takes me <30 seconds to open or close the top (manually). Note: my top is a semi-electric roof, which I think is what came on the 328iC, you have to lock into place after you close it.
Here's what you do: 1- open all of the windows 2- unlock the roof by turning the latch between the sun visors. 3- push the front of the roof towards the rear of the car - be sure to push in the middle of the roof, where the latch is. 4- lift the back of the roof up off of the roof storage compartment 5- while holding the back of the of the roof up, lift up the roof storage compartment door 6- let go of the back of the roof so that it drops right into the storage compartment 7- push the rest of the roof into the storage compartment 8- close the storage compartment door.
To close the roof, follow the steps above in reverse order. Remember: this is a German car, so you use a little bit (or a lot) of force and you won't hurt it (I think it actually likes it ;-D ).
