Most probably the door lock actuator for that door is gone. Or it might just be a case of broken cable, stuck or dislocated lock actuator rod. Easy fix if you are a bit mechanically inclined.

SOURCE: audi a4 1995 central locking problem

Hi there.
I had exactly the same problem and there are 2 ways of solving it. The first is to pay your Audi Service Centre £350-£550 to replace it for you and the second way is to do it yourself which will cost well under £100 (depending on ebay). Firstly check the Central Locking Pump to make sure the hoses haven't come off. This is located in the very back right hand corner of the boot so you will need to remove the carpet and internal trim and you will see a block of sponge. Carefully lift the top off this and you will see the pump sat inside it.
Actually there is a great set of photos online to help you and I will add the link for you at the end. If the hoses are still connected and not leaking it is very likely that the internal compressor wheel has shattered (quite a common fault). I believe it is possible to open the pump and replace this wheel (in fact there is one for sale on a very popular auction site at the moment) but my own preference was to simply buy a whole new pump and replace that (£16.00 + £8 p+p off the same auction site).
The most important thing for you to remember is that when you look to buy a replacement pump you need to find one with the EXACT same serial number. The one in the diagram shown is
8LO 862 257 N but I have a sneaky feeling yours might end in an A.
Anyway, I hope this is of some help and dont worry about the connections as both air connectors and all 3 electrical ones are different sizes and will only fit in one place each.
Good luck.
Rik

There's a TSB on that problem. It involves broken wires in the A and B pillar from the central convenience module to the rest of the car. Ask your VW dealership or what not for a more specific answer.

Enter car from left rear behind the driver and see if you can manually unlock it from the inside. Then use remote to test it.

You have every right to know what they did. If they won't tell you, be suspicious. Get a second opinion.
Any possibility the emergency brake could have locked up? When it locked up, had you raised each tire off the ground, could have checked for brakes locking up.
Sounds like they are trying to sell you a new transaxle. If you don't want to spend that much, find a shop that will look for and install a used transaxle, especially if this is a manual, they are pretty durable, the money you save could be spent on a new clutch, if needed- now is the time to do it, while the transaxle is out.
First, make them show or explain how they diagnosed a bad transmission.

Your vehicle security system has malfunctioned, you need to have it taken to the dealer for testing with a special tool called a "TECH2 scanner. There may be a service bulletin on this problem and you may be able to get help from GM on the repair.

Ler03836@rear hatch will not open lock seems to be releasing. almost think that something may be stuck at striker plate?


Had the same problem removed the hatch interior panel, removed a little grim from the working parts, loosened the 10mm bolt securing the lock motor, manually worked all the parts and sprayed a bit of wd-40. Its been about a week and no problems since. I did this because of two problems 1 using the remote the lock wouldn't fully disengage (but could hear it working) and 2 would also encounter problems trying to manually unlock with the key.

1999 9-5 2.3t. all I did was top up screen wash and now it wont start, has no indicators, radio says locked and no boot release. it cranks and has new battery.. there is NO remote fob for the car-presumed...


If you disconnected the battery then the anti-theft system engaged. The radio says locked may be refering to the computer as well. The system must be reset. Check the owners manual if you have it. Otherwise, you may end up having a dealer reset it. Thousands of people do this everyday.

I HAVE AN 02 TDI BORA THE CAR LOCKS AND UNLOCKS OK BUT THE INDICATOR LIGHTS DO NOT FLASH WHEN THE CAR IS BEING LOCKED, BUT DO UPON UNLOCKING. THEY DID UNTIL LAST WEEK


I'm not an expert but if you are using a remote it may have gotten outta whack, for lack of a better word. If you have your car manual it should tell you how to reprogram your remote to have what lights do what upon locking or unlocking. I recently sat on my remote and all my bells and whistles got crazy. Upon looking, sure enough I fixed it myself without any cost with omly a few steps the manual provided. Hope this helps.
