Question about 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio
If you would like to fix this yourself, you will be needing to pull the door panel off that side and finding the problem inside the door, but, before you do, here's what you are looking for:
The door latch is fastened to the door jamb with screws.
There are several wire-like levers that come to the door latch and tell it whether to lock or not, to open or not, etc.
The wire type levers come from the two handles, ( inside and out,) and the locking mechanisms, inside and out.
One of your has broken or come apart.
Maybe a bushing has failed at the end of one of the levers.

My wife's minivan had a similiar/related problem....especially on a
bumpy gravel road....on off on off on off...AHHHHHHHHHHHH!! (this was
both the beeps and the lights....as I said AHAHHHHH!)
I resolved it by figuring out which door was causing the issue....very irritating the flashing interior lights, etc.......the issue is likely that the rubber gasket is worth enough to not push the sensor in completely....

I had a similar problem with my son's 1998 Jetta K2 4 door. I sprayed loads of WD40 into the locking area from the end of the door through the clip slot, worked the mechanism sprayed some more and finally it start working. My mechanic said these are very prone to moisture causing rusting on the moving parts.

SOURCE: rear door wont unlock
this is not the dead lock? if i am right in thinkin that this is a centrally locked car then the sensor in the door isd set too low mybe slipped as only has to be out a little to cause this, more of an antitheft system than a dead lock.
