Mk4 golf gt tdi. Alarm keeps going off due to the car thinking the boot is open, the luggage compartment open light is permanently lite on the dash board however it goes off when I press on the brakes and comes back as soon as I release the pedal, I've removed the cover and checked the washer pipe all is fine I changed the boot latch for a new one and the problem still persists, sounds like a bad earth to me but no idea where, any ideas? Very annoying as the alarm continuously goes off :( only way around it at the mo is to leave the car unlocked :(

Boot is closed but light on dash says it isnt, although the words luggage compartment open dont appear

Not completely sure here as their are many variables but i would check the wires in the rubber boot that goes from the car body to the tailgate as this is where most faults appear to happen on hatchbacks

Vw gt tdi 1.9 warning signal flashes luggage compartment open when i am driving.

Hi p_ barber4
This problem is usually caused by a faulty lock in the luggage compartment door. Sometimes by removing the lock and motor, clean and lightly lubricate the moving pin can cure the problem.
Worth a try before you invest in a lock.
All the best

Just bought mk4 2000 golf v5,have to use key for lock/unlock but cant work out how to unlock without alarm going off when back door or boot is opened,only turns off by putting key in ignition

that is because the alarm needs a remote to tell the car that you are the owner and not someone with a key that fits the boot.the remotes are expensive so if you have not got a pair then sorry to say nothing you can do....last time i looked £132 each.....

Motor car electrical fault

ok....the problem is the rear washer pipe has blown of in the tailgate where it connects to the motor,it happens when you operate the rear washer when it is frozen.the connection is fairly weak and cant cope with pressure build both cases you need to remove the tailgate trim,reconect the pipe and dry out the catch as that has a micro switch in it that operates the warning light for tailgate open and the is shorted out with water hence the false alarming and warning light on........if you pop the bonnet but dont open it that will stop alarm from arming as temp fix,but dont forget to shut it before you drive off .hope this helps,please rate this ,thx

Boot sensor says its open when its not

The boot catch switch is faulty. Its leaving the boot light switched on permanently causing vaultage drop, triggering the alarm.

Boot alarm and boot light

The luggage compartment light uses the dome light fuse. So, I would say that the problem is most likely a bad switch at the boot lid latch. Failing that, there could be a bad connection at the junction connector which is located at the base of the left C-pillar (the part connecting the quarter panel to the roof).
