Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

I was driving to work this morning and my interior

As I was driving to work this morning, the car started dinging (the sound the door is opened) and the interior dome lights were flashing on and off. Anyone know what the deal is with it? I called my local mechanic and he advised me it would be about $450 to repair... Any other (cheaper) suggestions?

What is this Chevrolet part for?


It is not for keyless entry but the built in theft deterrent. Which means if the car is started without a key it keeps the instrument cluster (Speedometer, Gas, RPM, Etc.) from working. It is a lot harder for a thief to drive with no speedometer.

Where is the fuse box on my 1997 ford windstar lx?


If you remove the interior light fuse just to turn it off and to turn off the dinging noise then for sure this will drive you nuts, That fuse is part of the shift interlock,what this mean you wont be able to get the car out of park.That interior light and ding is part of the GEM module so you have to fix the problem,in the driver door panel part of the door lock assemble is the switch,either you disconnect that switch or you replace the switch.

How do I turn off the interior light and keep the back hatch open? We love going to the drive ends but the inside lighte wont turn off...


I do this almost daily, while working on or cleaning cars. Open drivers door, put key in ignition so that the chimes are dinging. Now, look at the latch on the open door, you can see a "U" shaped latch arm, using a screwdriver, pretend its the striker on the post, and push the latch arm back until it clicks twice. The dinging should stop, and the interior light will go off, just as if the door was closed. Now, if the latch on the rear hatch is similar, you should be able to "trick" it the same way.

Before you attempt to close the door(s) or the hatch, pull the handle as if you were opening it. The latch should pop back to it's "open" position. If not use the screwdriver to pull on it while pulling the handle. Do let me know if your now "IN THE DARK"!!

one of the door ajar switches are sticking. needs to be put on the computer to find out which one. only other way is to go around and unplug the switches until your light shuts off.

Door ajar and interior lights won't go off!


open the door and there will be a small piece of plastic that can be pushed into and out of the door jamb. You will need to replace that because it is not telling the computer the door is shut.

Hi! I have a 2002 Cadillac Deville and yesterday I unlock the door with key pad and opened it and when I did I heard the chiming sound that it makes when you have the keys in the ignition with the door...


It may be trying to get your attention for an open door, trunk lid or other item requiring attention. Check your owner's manual for items that can cause it to chime.

Sound like the door that gets used the most often has a bad door switch??? Check the switch on the driver door and all doors. It might be broken, are not making good contact with the door to hold the switch made, or pushing the button in properally.
