I am doing some work on a 2003 volkswagon eurovan. there were some problems with the locks and latches. I installed new sliding door latch, new passanger side extieror door latch (the part the actuates the latch). All the doors open and close smoothly, however when I attempt to lock the vehicle it locks all the locks and then unlocks them all right away. I can stick the key in all three door locks and the same thing happens on each of them.

Ok this problem is easy u have to take off the door panelling and look and the power door lock the piece that locks and unlock's the door sometime's fail's it is eather not working or stuck. to check where on the dooe where it can stick is where it latches when u close the door spray the linkage with WD40 to loosen it up Hope this Help's U...
take a look at the latches, make sure they are grease good and all working,sometimes one of the latches freezes up, so the door is not completely latched,also you can adjust the striker to lock tighter,this is located on the body, at the top and bottom of the left side door,take a look and see if all latches are latching, use a screw driver to push them locked and see if latec will stay latched in the lock postion. good luck.
Yes if your lock actuator is not stuck on unlock.Try unpluging the harness to rhe electric lock,and see if it will lock and stay locked using the key.If ti works then your okay.if you still have the problem then your tounge that holds the trunk down needs to be replaced.
you would have to take apart the door panel and check were the lock rod is their is a rubber copling which needs to be lubricated
with silicone grease,check the operation before you install door panel if is working ok,you dont have any other problem,but if it does'nt work you would need to replace complete latch.
