I have a seat Ibiza 07 1.4 when you lock the doors with the remote then try and unlock with the remote passenger door unlocks but drivers door does not and when you try to unlock it with the key it doesn’t...

If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all.
Plus i know a website that sells very cheap but very very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.
try reliable-store com..
also try manualslife
these two are very good

Hazard lights have come on but not flicking..Can't turn them off and now can't unlock car when pressing unlock button on keyring. Right rear door is locked and unable to open even from inside

try reseting alarm system.
with key in drivers door, unlock/ hold key over for 30 secs then lock/hold key over for 30 secs then press unlock button on remote
the system is now reset.if windows go up/down you have comfort settings on your computer.nice.....
if rear door still locked you will need to strip it down to find fault.then reset again...

Windows keep going down and doors unlocking after doors get locked by key or by remote and constantly making noise as if locking procedure is in process

this is a std really, its what vw call safety rollback... to reset ...take key out of ignition,lock car,leave for 15secs,then unlock car with key.holding key over untill all windows are down fully then take key out wait 15 secs put key back into door and lock car,windows will shut hopefully all the way this time...if you put your hand in whilst closing window it will "rollback"with key in ignition... NOT DOOR.

Keyless entry only works drivers door, car relocks

The window track may have some grit (sand or dirt) in it causing the window to drop down when it reaches to top of it's travel. This is because the safety feature which keeps you from choking yourself in an electric window works on resistance. Keep the track clean - a shot of WD40 in the track will clean it out. That should fix the window.

The lock problem may be a battery issue in the remote. Otherwise it sounds like it is in the anti-theft unit. Check for a loose ground issue.

Windows keep rolling down on my 2005 Nissan Titan. Anybody had that happen? How do you fix it?

Do you have global opening whre you can hold down your "Unlock" button on your remote and have all the windows open?

Look for water getting into a connector, usually in the wiring in the drivers door. Remove the door trim panel & check the connectors. report back
