My 99 passats rear passenger door wont open,that is,when the button is down in the locked position and you pull the handle on the inside the button comes up but goes straight back down again.the child lock isn't activated.i've been told it may be the dead lock?
i've tried pulling the outside handle just as the central locking is being worked but no good.
can the dead lock be bypassed manually or electrically.

Re: 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.

Rear hatch is locked or unlocked with a key. (if equipped) • To open the rear hatch, insert the key into the lock, turn it to the unlock position and pull up the rear hatch by pressing the handle (DOOR). You can also lock/unlock the latch (but not release it) with the central door lock system. • If unlocked, the rear hatch can be opened by pressing the handle (DOOR) and pulling the hatch up. • To close the rear hatch, lower and push down the rear hatch firmly. Make sure that the rear hatch is securely latched.
How are you trying to open the door , button on key fob ? With this system you can pull up on the drivers handle an it activates
Antennas in the external side door handles (C30/C70 front doors, S40/V50 rear doors)
Antennas in the passenger compartment and cargo compartment
An antenna in the rear bumper
Quick lock motors in the lock units in the side doors
The remote keyless entry (RKE) receiver receives a signal from the key
The switch in the clutch pedal (manual transmissions) or a signal from the brake pedal switch via the central electronic module (CEM) (automatic transmissions)
Switch in door handle and lock button on handle .
If a door handle is pulled outward, a switch closes that wakes up the system and activates the antennas in the handles on the side where the handle has been pulled out. If a valid key is within a radius of approx. 1.5 metres from the handle, the relevant door will open and the vehicle will unlock one or several doors. Which doors are unlocked depends on the settings for the system. The vehicle can also be unlocked if the handle is affected on the tailgate.
turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.
