Question about Cars & Trucks
The locking mechanism on my VW Jetta Sportswagon completely failed me last week. Hitting the unlock button on the remote access key would IMMEDIATELY lock the car doors back and sound the "locked" alarm; Turning the physical key in the door to the unlock position would still activate the IMMEDIATE electronic lock and "locked" alarm would sound; Sitting in the car with doors intentionally unlocked, I opened the door to get out and the "broken into" alarm went off and was only disengaged by hitting the unlock button on the remote access key. I took the car and keys to the dealer and they ordered and replaced the L/F Window Motor. WHY?

Go to your local junk or scrapyard and pull them yourself. The dealer charges an average of 90-100 dollars an hour. So a lot of the money they quoted you for was probably for labor

I had the same problem. I had lost the wiring connection between the drivers door lock (where the key goes in) and the alarm. The only way to fix this was to rewire the connection.
I am not 100% sure what breaks the connection - probably wear and tear on the wire with the door opening and closing.
This has happened to me twice in the last 5 years.
