Question about Volkswagen Passat
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.
