It's likely there is a problem with the door sensor switch located in the door lock module. If you're adventurous, you can repair or replace the switch, but most likely, you will need to replace the entire lock module.

Either procedure requires disassembling the door panel and removing the window glass to gain access to the lock module. If you're handy, this can be a DIY job. If not, I would recommend taking it to a body shop, VW dealership, or repair shop.

It's also possible there is a problem with the central lock or central electric module in the car's computer. This can be diagnosed if you have access to a VAG-COM diagnostic cable and computer running the VCDS software. Your VW dealer or repair shop can also run these diagnostics for you.

How do i fix my drivers door it wont open inside/outside?


Very difficult to do. They sell jimmy kits that can be used through the window trim to get the door to unlatch. A locksmith will probably be able to open it for you or try to get the inside door panel off and manually open door using linkage inside of door.

The driver side door on my 2002 chevy blazer wont close.how do i fix it?


Door pins are a common failure on that series of Blazer/S10's. Also, another point of contention that the door faces is a sticky latch. Basically, the door latch re-latches itself and when you shut the door into the catch, it slams into it and bounces off. An easy fix is a 3 part cocktail of brake parts cleaner. Open and shut the latch with a screw driver acting as the catch and your interior door handle a few times. P'Blaster, open and shut the door a few times with the screwdriver acting as the catch. Finally, a good shot of white lithium grease. Open and shut the door with a screwdriver as the catch several times. Once you feel it is un-stuck, actually close and open the door several times. If you notice the door rising every time it catches, you MUST replace the door pins (cheap fix). If the door still has issues, replace the door latch (and since you're in there, do some PM and replace the actuator as well).

CTS 2010, RKE system does not work for the driver door. The key is in my purse, my purse on my shoulder and the driver's door only refuses to open even if I hear the doors unlocking. It's driving...


if you are hearing clicking noise but the door won't open then the door lock actuator is not releasing the lock. not uncommon problem ,but the car is still new. most of the time this type of problem starts after 5or6 years. I hope your car is still under warranty.
