Golf indicator lights flashing when locking with beeper

On my 96 golf when i lock the car with the beeper,sometimes the indicator lights keep on flashing as if it got broken into though all doors are closed properly. It locks and unlocks without a problem in general, even when it keeps on flashing it is locked.

Possible ecm reset needed (electronic control module) This is easy to do at home with a pair of visegrips or a wrench set. anyway the idea is to disconnect the car batt for atleast 2-3 minutes and with the key out of the ignition replace the batt terminals and tighten them wait 2-3 minutes and then get in car turn key only to light the dash this is called the post, once the dash has sat in the active position for the time said 2-3 minutes, turn car off remove key replace key and start the car let it run for a min or so and then turn off and exit the car and proceed to activate the alarm if the prob still is there i then suggest an ecm test any mechanic or dealer will test it for a nominal fee, if there is any thing at all not right with the car this test will get to the root. and if the test is showing no problems with the car the issue is most likely in the electronic keychain alarm keylock box

2003 VW GOLF REAR door wont open


The rear door lock actuator has failed in the door locking unit this is a common problem you can manually unlock the door to replace the latch if you didn't have the deadlocking on if you cant try pressing the locking button twice so when the car is locked the flashing red light is not blinking ie off on the drivers. Doing this usually causes the faulty lock to release the dead locking so you can pull the inside handle to unlock the door.

90 toyota camry keeps beeping when door is closed and car is shut off.


There should be a switch in the door opening usually on the front pillar between the hinges or at the bottom where the door meets the body at the back,that controls the interior light and possibly the beeper, If it has gotten out of adjustment, or is broken for some reason could cause your beeper to keep going. Check to see if your interior light is staying on as well.

Check the wires in between the door and the chasis. Remove the rubber insulation and check for broken wires. This is a common problem. I also have a Golf 5 and recently same thing happened on my deriver side. Onces I resoldered the wires and insolate them seperatly so that no open wires are visible, I reconnect and the alarm + door worked with the remote.

Check under the hood. Often, there is a small switch that needs to be closed when the hood is shut. This switch sometimes comes loose and when the hood is closed the button is never pushed. Find the magic button and reattach it to it's mount so that the hood will press it when the hood is closed and that should solve the problem. This button works with the alarm system.

Hazard light and interior lights problem on 2001 A3


the indicator lights flashing constantly might be a warning from the car that all the doors have not been closed properly

after writing this ^^ i think that the system that tells the car if the door is open or closed it damaged or broken
and needs replacing

try leaving all the doors open and lock the car do the indicator lights flash contantly?

you need to get a dianostics done but due to the reson that it is intermmitant the problem will not exist when you get to the garage

check all the sensors that tell the car if the door is open firstly
