    Does the door have power at all? In other words, does the window work and does the courtesy light illuminate?

I would check the electrical wiring connector that connects to the B Pillar (the structure between the front and back doors looking for a pinched wire. If you move the rummer boot around a bit I think you can get a pretty good look at the wires and you will be looking for one that might be dangling loose. If this sort of thing isn't really up your alley a trip to the dealer may be in order.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

probably the door switch which senses if the drivers door is actually closed if the micro door switch is damaged then it is not seeing that the door is closed,check that out if not that you will need a vag scanner or something similar to get into the central locking module,let me know how you do peace

Central locking


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.

I need to reset my car alarm on my 02 vw golf. the battery has been replaced so alarm wont unlock doors


stick key in driver door lock and unlock it. If that works, now see if the remote will unlock the door or doors..i remember reading in an owners manual once where you can program which doors open and close by they way you press and hold down the two main buttons, also after a battery change in the remote, i think, but not sure, i did this on a blazar i once owned... the owners manual said, that you had to be within 20 feet and press and hold down both buttons till it makes the arming sound.... Can i get some feedback cause im curious..thanks.

I have a 1999 vw bora, and the boot will not lock/unlock along with the other doors via key fob or inside drivers door button. I always have to use the key to manually open the boot. I've tried leaving...


this could be due to the fact that the boot locking mechanisim may not be responding to the central locking servo it could be a fuse or relay or maybe even to do with the wireing hope it helps but i suggest that you take it to a garage because it can be a number of things and volkswagen should know if there is a common fault with this get in contact with them

1997 Porsche Carrera S --- Central Locking System Battery went dead while on travel and now the key fob for central locking is kaput! Is there a sequence to re-sync the fob to controller?


Hi,

Maybe you can try this procedure to resyn your key.
Initialization Procedure.

1. Open central locking system using the car key.
2. Get into the car and close all doors.
3. Using the car key, switch the ignition lock briefly to position "1" and then switch off again. (Please do this switching within 5 seconds or otherwise the system is not ready for initialization.
4. At the remote control key. Press the "OPEN" key (->) and keep holding.
5. When holding the "OPEN" key, press the "LOCK" button three time.
6. After pressing the "LOCK" button 3 times, release the "OPEN" button.
7. If the initialization process is sucessful, the door will lock and unlock immediately to confirm the process.

Voltswagon Bora Central locking fault


i had the same problem and i fixed it yesterday. you will have to strip the door down and remove the central locking unit. expect about a 3-4 hour job (at least).
check this site out taligentx.com: Passat - Door Lock Mechanism Repair. its **** hot.
mine had rotted inside, i tried to resolder it but it was to corroded i ended up soldering wires to the circuit board and splicing the into the loom on the door.(bit of a botch but it works great)
you can get a second hand unit if you cant fix it for about £50/£60 or pay a garage about £300 to do it.
believe me it was worth about 4hrs and gettin peed off to save the money.
hope this helps.
emptyed : )
