Interior lights dont work,electric windows have stopped working, both electric door mirrors and the doors have to be opened and with the key the key fob stoprd working
I have the same problem with a 98 Passat. Water in passenger footwell. Internal lights not working. Electric windows not working. It has been like that for 2-3 weeks. Now today, it wouldn't start and I have an engine management likj=ght and another light on the dash. I'd appreciate any ideas on what it is.

There is a fuse box on the drivers side either under the dash or on the aids of the dash. One of them fuses could be blown.
The other thing that could be going wrong is the harness on the driver side door. If you open the drivers door you will see a harness stretching from the frame to the door. You can get into that harness and look for broke, bulged or rusted wires and splice in new ones. This is common with aged vehicles because of the amount that door is used.
Heat will not help and can damage the door lock mechanism further.
You can try lubing the door lock, but I do not thing it will help. I think there may be something wrong with the mechanism, or you will get the same problem from outside and inside.
If the door is opening from the inside , then the door lock mechanism My still be working. On VW the outer handle is connected to the lock by a steel wire, or by a metal shaft.
To access the door lock you need to remove the internal door panel.
The door panel is held by hidden screws located on handles and by a set of clips located behind the panel near to the panel border.
I have service manual for several VW models, I will see if I can find the manual for 1995-1997 Passat and I will eventually send the diagrams to undo the door and access the lock.
fuses are usually in the glove box or under the drivers dash or under the drivers side hood either physically inspect every fuse by pulling them one by one or the aid of a test light and a good ground to the test light
check the fuse 3rd along 3rd down.its a 10amp minifuse.if thats ok chances are you have a water leak in to passenger footwell that has corroded the splice that feeds the convenience control unit .if fuse is ok let me know and i can give you more info.
check all the fuses on the fuse panel (located on the end of the dashboard). Behind the plastic door, drivers side. Then see if all the windows will go up and down; locking and unlocking the door with the key in the door lock. You have to hold the key in the unlock position to make this option work.
