Question about 2007 Volkswagen Passat Sedan

1 Answer

2007 vw passat 2.0 tdi Boot lid open itself

When the car is unlocked the boot open itself intermittently.
If the car is locked it does not happen.
It is a fully electronic/solonoid system.
I suspect the solonoid is disengaged when the car is locked.
It seems to happen more ehen it is wammer.
I have disconnected the wire comming from the switch in the driver door and it still happens.

I suspect it could be locking mechanism's solenoid energising itself cause by faultty electronics inside the unit.

I want to save a 600 time around the block trip.
Everytime I take it to the dealer, they reset the computor and say it is fixed.

Regards
Mike

My Passat did the same thing for a while. Where do you carry your keys? My key was activating in my pocket over a long range and popping my trunk open. If that isn't a possibility, you can simply lock the truck in via the control switches over the speaker. Just turn the key to locked. Try that if nothing else, just remember to unlock it when you need to us the trunk :)

CENTRAL LOCKING NOT OPENING BOOT


My passat boot lock does the same because someone forced the lock one night, i replaced the lock barrel but from time to time the white plastic acctuator or pump if you want to call it that jams in the open position and needs a small tap with the boot lining removed to free it up.A replacement is only £23(U.K pounds) or just spay a little lubricant in the mechanism to free up the mostly dry plastic parts.

I unlocked the boot with the remote then closed


You may be able to open the vehicle using a coat hanger or similar object to push the lock/unlock button. Once you've gained access to the inside of the vehicle, you can push the trunk unlock button on the dash or floor (can't remember which) and it will release the trunk lock so you can retrieve your keys.

There may not be any other way to fix it except to replace your instrument panel. That's where your immobilizer is located. Or you could try this:

Try cold-booting the car. Remove both battery cables from the battery. Short the battery cables together (away from the battery) for about 15 seconds. Reconnect the battery. No guarantees - I found this info at tdiclub.com.
