Either 1) One of the door lock switches is stuck (the car is continuously trying to lock or unlock the doors, most likely in the "unlock" position); try to wiggle each door lock switch up and down (into the lock and then unlock position) to see if you can free the stuck switch. 2) More difficult to repair - the locking system's wiring harness has become damaged such that an exposed conductor is making contact with a metal part of the car (i.e. it's being grounded, which has the same effect as operating the door lock switch. Has any work been performed on this car recently, especially any door panels removed? Someone could have shot a screw through the wiring harness. If this is the nature of the problem, it may be a slow, tedious repair.

What is causing clinking sounds when unlocking the doors with the remote? I also hear clicks when shutting the car off when the locks auto.


Next time notice the manual lock. If it is moving with the click noise, the lock actuator is going out.

It sounds like the door lock actuator in that door is malfunctioning, has anyone been in that door panel? If the actuator rod gets bent it can cause this to happen. Remove the door panel and either replace the actuator, straighten the rod or just unplug it and the rest of the doors should continue to work.

Probably is the actuator. Common problem. The actuator is part of the complete door latch. Hopefully that is what you got from 'Dorman'.

Noise in the door of 1999 New Jetta.


well, Im not there to hear it but, when the car first hits 8mph or thereabouts, the doors lock automatically. if the loud noise happens about the same time all the other doors lock, I'd say the lock mecanism is bad. This is not all that uncommon

the lock actuator is going out. worse case scenario is you will have to lock it manually or replace the lock actuator inside the door panel. it may still be under warranty. call them and have the vin ready and they can look in their data base. if they prove to be unhelpful, please feel free to e-mail me and i will call. iambanshee74@yahoo.com
