Welcome to Fixya

You might be experiencing three problems here.

1) A bad key/lock: It is not likely that the tumblers in the lock have worn down but it is possible that the lock is dirty or is not lubricated right. Try spraying WD-40 into the lock and on the locking mechanism that actually locks the door (the claw that hold the door shut)
2) You have a bad linkage. Inside the door everything is attached and at times it comes apart or dislodged. Sometimes you can have a plastic retaining piece or or attaching piece that has become brittle. You can take off the door panel and get a good idea of how thing work by moving the inside handle or using the power locks. If every thing is connected in the linkage then...
3) You have a bad actuator. This is the actual electronic piece that locks and unlocks the door. It is usually on the inside left bottom (if looking from the inside). It can wear out and allow certain parts of the lock to work (ie key less entry, inside door handle, power locks) while giving difficulties to other part (ie the key)

Thank you for using Fixya!

SOURCE: All my remotes won't unlock passenger doors, why?

this is a problem that can appear after your car battery died, cause the car didn't reset propely, so taking the battery out and putting it back in or letting your car die again would do the trick. I tried a lot of reprogramming procedured for my remote key, none of them worked, what did the trick though was simply unlocking the doors via the all door unlock button on the passenger side door, so simple.

I have forgotten the lights on my passat and the battery went dead. Now I can not unlock the doors with my key remote nor manually. How can I open the doors


You can always open the trunk and have someone small enough crawl through the trunk... as long as they are old enough to know how to unlock the door once inside (just pull on the door handle).

The key should work in the driver's door though... not sure why it won't.

You might try resynchronizing the remote first before getting a replacement. The owners manual should outline that procedure. Otherwise you are going to out of need get a replacement.

I found out what to do, there is a plastic covering on the door handle. Click that off and the use the key in the key fob to unlock the door. You can lock & unlock it.

Please help! My key Fob will lock all the doors on my 2006 VW Passat. It will only lock three of the doors and leave the passenger side unlocked...When I manually lock the passenger side door...it...


Sounds like you have a bad door lock actuator or one of the lock rods has come loose and is in a bind. Can you hear any noise from the door lock actuator in that door when you operate the power door locks? If not, you probably need to replace the actuator. The hardest part will be getting the door panel off without damage. Once the door panel is off, it should be fairly easy to replace the lock actuator even if it comes with the entire latch assembly.

My wife is stuck at the airport. the key fob on


On the driver's side door handle, there is a cap covering the key hole on the right side. On the bottom of the cap is a small ****. Use the valet key to pry it up and off. Then you may open the door, most likely sounding the alarm, so you will need to insert the remote in the ignition to stop the NOISE!!!! Hope this helps. This is how I lock my remote away when I go somewhere to run.

Do you have a key fob? Unlock the car with that and you should be OK. My sons Elantra is the same way, you can only get in with the fob. I guess the car thinks it's being stolen otherwise. If you don't have a fob, I'm no help
