If you can get a blow dryer to it, heat it up in the latch area, if not pour warm water on area.

2000 vw jetta. driver's side door lock switch will unlock door, but not lock it. passenger side locks all doors properly


Your probably correct in that the drivers side door toggle is broken. Check a junk yard to get this piece cheaply. A Volkswagen dealer will be very expensive. Call around and give them the year,model and make of your vehicle to find a used part.

1997 vw cabrio driver door does not turn on dome light. Passenger side works fine. How do I troubleshoot and fix?


Check the switch in the door-jam. Little black plunger that pushes against door when closed, you'll probably find your driver doors switch is stuck in/or broken.

Everytime you trie to start my 1997 Jetta G.O. the alarm goes off, how do i disconnect the alarm without unhooking the battery?


Try unlocking it from the passenger door (with the key). the driver door lock has a weak connection that wears out, then the car doesn't "know" you unlocked it from driver's side. Do you have the key fob to unlock it? If so, use it (unlock) then open the pass. door.
Please let me know if this worked! -Tom

How do I disalarm my 1997 VW Cabrio Alarm?


I have a similiar problem occasionally. In my 97 vw, it usually happens when the battery terminals are loose. I just take them off, clean them and reconnect and the problem goes away for several months.

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.

All power door locks lock except the driver side front door


On my jetta, if you don't lock the doors with the remote then all doors lock except the drivers door. try this
1. closing all doors walk around to the passenger door.
2.open the door, using the button on the passenger door, lock the doors.

I had this happen to me on my jetta and found you could lock all the doors if you did'nt use the drivers door or you locked using the remote. They did this to keep the driver from locking the keys in the car. I hope this worked for you
