Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

My stock radio wont turn off after key is out in my 2003 VW Jetta

It used to turn off after I would open the door, but after I got my car checked out at the dealership for a waterpump, thermistat, coolant flange and ac issues, now it stays on ALL of the time...Key or no key - Doors open or closed - locked or unlocked - alarm on or off - I know I will forget to turn it off one of these days and kill the battery! Is there something that I can do to turn this function back on??

It may be a short in the door sensor itself. You can always remove the bulb for the time being. Otherwise, wires, relays, and door senor will have to be tested for short or open circuit.

2001 jetta door wont open when i unlock it


hi

it sounds like the lock or module is faulty

you will have to remove the inside door trim and check to see if any thing has come off or if anything is broken

if it all looks intact and its not responding to the inside lock or maybe just the outside key

then it sounds like the lock is faulty or something attached to the lock

2003 VW Jetta ''door open'' alarm goes off while driving


The door latch located in the door panel has a micro switch built into it assembly. It is what detects an open door. A new latch is about $150. If you could find a shop to replace it for you. You could also try buying some plastic-safe contact cleaner/lubricant and spraying the latch assembly out and opening/closing the door a few times to work it in.

2003 VW Jetta trunk does not open


most likely cause is latch cover plastic has broken and got lodged in the latch mechanism. now the fun part, fold down back seat , slide into trunk with a phillips screwdriver a flashlight and a large strait blade screwdriver, once in trunk remove trunk cover, then with strait blade unlatch the trunk. once lid is open remove latch and take out broken plastic to free up latch and reinstall then retest before closing trunk.

I have a 1996 vw jetta and i turn off the ignition, remove the key and still have power to the radio and door sensor.


Some cars allow power to the radio, etc. even after the key is turned off and taken out of the ignition. If everything turns off when the door opens, then it is most likely normal for your car. I know the newer VW Jetta's do this.
