Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
Remote for 2006 beetle opens trunk, locks doors, and operates panic (on & off) but will not unlock doors. Same result with brand new battery and after reprogramming according to instructions in user manual for car.
Sounds like your remote is broken and it would cost more to try to get someone to fix it then to buy new one. Auto part stores carry these remotes. also u can get them online from ebay.

10 year old remotes go bad often, especially due to moisture retention.

Testimonial: "Thank you, yes both(2) remotes are bad. I found a testing machine at a local auto parts store, even with new batteries the remotes do not send signal."
just found out it is the left front door latch assembly that failed on my car...so there is nothing wrong with the remote transmitter....dealer says $385.00..not happy but thats the answer i got

I have the exact same problem. When I went to a chevy dealer today,they told me when they tested it that who ever replaced the battery busted the solder on the door lock and unlock buttons. So now I am looking for a new one.They are 50 dollars cheaper on the web I hear.

There is a fuse box under the right rear seat cushion behind the driver. In that box is a 10 amp mini fuse marked "TRUNK DR RELEASE". That is the fuse that powers your remote receiver. If that fuse is good, the receiver may have failed. To remove the seat cushion, pull the front of the cushion up and then forward.
