    Unfortunately I have a similar problem with my Passat 1.6. About a month back one of the back indicators stopped working. The indicator light was chnaged at VW garrage. Two weeks after that a light strated coming inside showing some door is open but the problem disappeared soon. After one more week the central locking system became erratic. I was unable to lock the car with remote control. The inner light would not go off. I went to the VW workshop but they asked me to leave the car with them for two days but I did not do that.After I came out of the VW show room the car started working normally. It worked fine for about 20 days except one of the headlight got blown off and needed replacement. Once again the central locking system had failed, the windows and oil tank cap did not work. I discovered one fuse that had blown off which was changed. Everything axcept the tail lock worked fine for about two days. Today the central locking system has failed! I think there is some shor circuiting somewhere which is causing this problem. Is there any solution to the problem? Some people suggest that the entire central locking system be changed but it is very expensive!

Most likely a defective central locking solenoid inside the door. Before stripping down door, look at the rubber trunking between the pillar and the door frame, that carries the wiring into the door. Peel back the rubber and look for broken wires or corrosion on plug.

My remote central locking system has failed (not battery in fob) and I cannot access my fuel tank. Can I manually release the tank cover without removing all the rear panelling? VW Passat Estate 05 plate.


vw doesnt have an emergency release handle that i know of,you will have to remove the panel and then twist the cable end where the head of the gas door lock is, as you twist it will pop out, unless its electric release then do the same except there no cable just the lock head and a connector. the release seloniod may be bad or stuck, or the door may be stuck.hope this helps,
