CEntral locking problem drivers door, VW GOld PLus
Actually they area vacume/preshure opparated system.... now if fitted with this crazey system bear with me!!!!!
Open the boot, pull back the lineing to reveal the off side rear lamp cluster, underneath the cluster you will see a black box with a plug and a plastic preshure pipe going to it (this is the vac- air+ preshure pump and electronic control unit.
Now what happens is this the seal on the back light cluster leek rain water in after a while, and guess where it goes? Yes thats right all over and inside the box where al the electronics are! Fantastic ! any way solution is easy just take the box out....take it in the house open it... tip the water out! dry it out in the airing cubard or hair dryer e.t.c. put the lid back on thats it (GOODTHING REALLY SEEN THE PRICE OF THEM?) oh! forgot to say it is in like some grey polystirine in the car to stop it banging about!sugest you re seal the lamp unit with some RTV silicone sealer (Better than the manufacture seals) OH YES THAT BOX ALSO IS THE ALARM CONTROL TOO!
There you go Neil your all sorted!
