You have a bad door lock control module.  The car is seeing that the door is open all the time.  Each door has one of these modules.  You need a Factory scan tool to properly determine which door or trunk module is bad or a computer with VAGCOM on it and the odb 2 cable.  This is simple to figure out if you have the right tools.  For someone without a scan tool try shutting each door hard and the trunk.  Do each one seperatly and watch too see if light goes out.  Sometimes you can knock the module into working again.  Then the last door you shut would have the issue module in it.

My warning light saying the door is open stays on when they are all closed its a 2004 golf tdi

one of the door sensors most likely the most used driver door is bad (faulty) using a proper scanner you can access the body control module and get this information. the sensor is located on the door lock mechanism, meaning lock might have to be replaced to fix problem.

1997 VW Golf GTI 2 Litre. The ABS light comes on

Hello, My 2000 2.0 Golf just recently had the same problem. I would feel the ABS pump working at certain times through the accelerator pedal. I found the right rear sensor failed the Bentley manual continuity test . After removing it I found it was pretty rusted. The sensor head is located inside the rear brake disc hub area and this probably explained this rust. The rust probably worked its way into the sensor body where you can't clean it and thus the resistance value went above specification. I ordered mine through Autohaus and cost me just over $50.00 for both rear sensors. Even though my drivers side was good I replaced it at the same time. The ABS light hasn't been on for 4 days now..

The interior light on my vw golf r32 stays on when all doors and boot is closed? Where is the sensor located?

Hi, one of your door pressure switches are sticking or, may be disconnected or broken. these pressure switches are located within the inner side of each door frame. they are usually housed where the door hinges are located. you can replace these switches.

make sure it isnt a wiring issue before you buy new pressure switches.

Please rate and have a great day:)

One more thing. make sure the dome light(interior light), switch isn't set to ON. if its set to ON, it will continue to illuminate even if the doors are closed.
