99 vw passat doors will not open with remote & only 1 door will unlock sometime. rear door locks don't work most of the time.


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.

1999 volkswagen bora 1.4 petrol ,central locking will not work at all with key on drivers side but locks all doors including drivers door from passengers side


My 1998 passat does the same the other way around.Does the courtesey light on the bottom of the door work?, if not then it's a brown wire going to the courtesey light(the thicker of the 2) that has a break somewhere.I ran a short test lead(earthed to the body if i remember) to this direct and everything worked like new but the light would remain lit all the time with the door closed.These wires are all interlinked with the windows/central locking/door switch/courtesey light and forced door entry(not breaking of glass).The lazy way is to run a link like i did and remoe the bulb but get a auto electrician to advise you first.

Door locked, from inside and out


sounds as if the door latch may be too far in causing this to UN open if you can understand that try pushing against the door and allowing someone else to work the door handle just trying to relieve the pressure a if you manage to open the door , readjust the door striker bolt as well as lubricate the lock ,otherwise remove the window completely so you wont break it while working on the door latch from inside the vehicle are all the linkages still connected ? try lubricating the lock latch as well it can be a pain but if you are patient enough you can get the door to release if and when you do remove the screws and linkages to the lock and remove and either replace or clean the latch itself and oil it good work it by hand a dozen times to ensure the working lock itself then when your confident it is working replace it and reverse method to reinstall
