2002 volkswagon beetle says that the trunk is when not.
My 2002 volkswagon beetle says that the trunk is open but it is not. When I lock the door using the key, i do not hear the beeping sound like it normally does. It also then sometimes makes the alarm go off because it thinks someone is trying to break into the car. Any idea what is wrong and what i can do to fix it?

The switch in the trunk which tells the alarm that the trunk lid is closed is either defective or not correctly adjusted. If this info is of no help to you, than you don't know enough to fix it. Take it to a reputable VW shop for repair. Charlie

Assume that the user is unaware of the vehicles functionalities contributing towards acquiring operations. The advice is to refer to the drivers manual to acquire familiarisatio with feature parts of the vehicle. For example, the vehicle user guide would usually provide detail expectations required with complicated parts. Most automatic innovations have manufacturers details provided only to the the operator of the vehicle especially with security lock modes. Dependign on the innovation features on the Beatle, the manufacturer would have provided details to the owner at acquisiiton. For example, a locked door on the vehicle may have been programed by the operator requiring unlocking with programing codes. For example, cars that are locked with remote controls may require the remote control device to unlock. Unless that the owner/operator of the vehicle has an alternate means to achieving accessibilty as securituy mode. Asumming that the vehicle were broken preventing the operator/ower from acquirng accessibilty. Such an instance woould require for the owner to consult with the vehicles manufacturers techicians to achieve most favorable means to resolution. Especially with vehicle security lock codes, an attempt to unlock by an unconvnetional method has several effects. First, the orginal security settings may be compromised by an unauthorised experted. The consequece usually is a cause of the manufactuers to discontinue guarantee because operators attempt to cause damage for reasons least explanable. Contact the Beatly manucfactuers technical experts to handle the responsibility professionaly because several advantages exists to that process of resolving malfunctions. Assume that the owner/operator of the vehicle is inconvenienced by accidentally locking doors. However, getting acess into the passengers area of the vehicle makes accessibilty into trunk area by unfastening the rear seats. Goodluck
Other Volkswagons have the release in the trunk or in the cargo area of the car, behind a small access panel or door. Sometimes this is part of the trunk liner and you have to pull it away from the edge....
do the rear seat have a fold down section or a little door behind center arm rest that you can get in to pull the emergency release handle inside? I don't know anything about this car specifically but maybe this will help.
the dealer gave you a ignition key, instead of valet key.
valet key should open the driver door and ignition. nothing else. if the key can't ope the door. try the trunk. if it open the trunk, the it is a wrong key.
