Do the interior lights come on when you open the door (and you have the lights set to do that)? If they do not, the open door switch has gone bad and the car does not know you opened the door, that's why it locks itself. The procedure to fix this problem can be found here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461

Hi. If you remove the back seat, the door pad can then be removed, lokk at the rhs one to see where the bottom screw is, this can be removed with a long t20 torx driver. Once in the door pad, remove the windows ancillery carrier, you can then break the door lock from the inside of the door.

Vw bora central locking


I would check the electrical wiring connector that connects to the B Pillar (the structure between the front and back doors looking for a pinched wire. If you move the rummer boot around a bit I think you can get a pretty good look at the wires and you will be looking for one that might be dangling loose. If this sort of thing isn't really up your alley a trip to the dealer may be in order.

Voltswagon Bora Central locking fault


i had the same problem and i fixed it yesterday. you will have to strip the door down and remove the central locking unit. expect about a 3-4 hour job (at least).
check this site out taligentx.com: Passat - Door Lock Mechanism Repair. its **** hot.
mine had rotted inside, i tried to resolder it but it was to corroded i ended up soldering wires to the circuit board and splicing the into the loom on the door.(bit of a botch but it works great)
you can get a second hand unit if you cant fix it for about £50/£60 or pay a garage about £300 to do it.
believe me it was worth about 4hrs and gettin peed off to save the money.
hope this helps.

Lots of lights etc not working on my bora


Its the dorr lock mechanism! There are contacts inside the lock along with a microswitch! Soldering joints etc crack and cause bad connections! It can be fixed or you can replace the lock
