Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

Fuel Door Switch does not work nor does all door unlock

2003 VW Jetta VR6

Truck switch works but fuel door switch does not. Also when you double click the unlock doors on the remote key, it does not open them. However, if you click the unlock all doors on the drivers side door, it does work.

Is there an easy way to release the door? Short of a screw driver:)

Unlock the drivers door from the outside, as you would when you want to unlock all the doors at the same time (with a double turn). Your fuel door should open as long as all the other doors are unlocked.

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 Jetta TDI - Door locks open fuel door


Look for a short in the wiring harness in the door. The wires from the door lead to the convenience module (controls the doors and windows and some other settings including remote fob) that is under the dash. It sounds like some wires are crossed. VWs are also notorious for having problems with window regulators. They make the windows go up and down and are in the doors. Something might have happen to that and it cause a short. VW just extended the warranty on the window regulators to seven years because of these problems so you should be able to take it to a dealer and not get charged (this is in the U.S. at least, don't know about the rest of the world). The extended warrranty was not limited to original owners but you might want to ask the service people about it first.
