Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Trunk button hardly works

The button to open the trunk on my jetta seems to not work very well at all, my son actually thought that it didn't work at all and so checked all the fuses, but I told him that you just really have to play with it to get it to work.

My 1987 Cadillac fleetwood D'elegance trunk wont open,even when i push the trunk release button in the glove department


Do you hear a click noise at all? You could try this.. One person sit on the truck lid, (heavier may be better) relieving the lift tension on the lock, while the other person push the button and hold. Sitter then hops off and pulls up on the trunk lid. If not working, Sitter person could try gently bouncing on the trunk lid while you hold the button.
Groceries still in trunk after 3 months???
If no joy, then you need someone to replace or remove the lock and pop it with a screwdriver.

94 Jetta with manual locks that do not work.


As for the manual locks the door handles on vws are known for either coming apart or breaking very easily.You need to take the door panels off and see if the lock came apart or broke,the linkage to the manual locks is bent or maybe a clip came off,or broke.

I have a 95 Jag xj6 and my trunk release button nor the key will open the trunk. I thought the valet switch in the arm rest had been activated but the main key wont deactivate it. Any suggestions or is...


We're working on our friends 95 Jag. He took it to a local shop and the gomer calling himself a mechanic started pushing buttons on the console. He pushed the top down button while the top was still connected. The rear windows thought the top was supposed to go down so they started rolling down. They stopped them about halfway down, but couldn't get them back up. But that isn't the problem. Now, we can't get the trunk open. The problem? The trunk is not the original. It came from a junkyard and he has never had a key. So the remote only works on the doors. How in the world do we get that trunk open. Our only thought is to go through the back seat, and that looks like way too much work. Any ideas?

2003 VW Jetta trunk does not open


most likely cause is latch cover plastic has broken and got lodged in the latch mechanism. now the fun part, fold down back seat , slide into trunk with a phillips screwdriver a flashlight and a large strait blade screwdriver, once in trunk remove trunk cover, then with strait blade unlatch the trunk. once lid is open remove latch and take out broken plastic to free up latch and reinstall then retest before closing trunk.

The trunk on my 97 jetta wont unlock is there some way to open it from inside without using the consol button, which also doesn't work


There is one way, in the back seat in the center you should have a arm rest that folds down, behind this is a access panel that should also fold down leaving a opening for ski's ect. You can use a flash light to see what your doing and use a car snow brush you use for brushing off snow to push on the linkage at the back of trunk or something you can use to manipulate the latch linkage. You may be lucky enough your jetta may have a emergency pull handle which will allow you to open the trunk from inside again find something you can use to grab that and pull ! trunk open, then you can work on replacing the key tumbler that sounds like its seized and not allowing you to unlock it, or the linkage its self has come apart or jammed.

Trunk wont open on my 2001 vw tdi jetta


You can open it old school. Insert the key in the trunk lock in the VW emblem and turn it while pushing down on the trunk lid with the other hand a little bit. It should open. The plastic arm that the motor is pushing to unlock may be broken. I have the same problem. You can see it if you unscrew the fabric from the trunk lid and press the button on the remote. There are about a dozen fuzzy head screws (nicely masked btw.) that hold it. I am still looking for the proper name of the part so I can order it for my car.

VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote My Jetta trunk recently started to give me problems without warning. I cannot get the trunk open with the remote. The trunk only opens manually...


If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.

2005 Volkswagon Jetta Trunck Problems


I had the trunk problem, it would open if you use the key, but took a few tries to get it shut. Also the gas cover would not close. Both were covered by warranty because I was just under 50,000 miles.
