It's the switch on the door frame that detects when your door is open. VW's are notorious for this problem. It either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Definitely try cleaning it first. It might be stuck in the "door closed" position.

How do I get my drivers door open...I have tried the key and electric locks but drivers door will not open


It appears to me that the door hinge bushings have worn out , do not force the inner or outer door handles. Lower the window and use the top part of the window frame to left up on the door to release the weight on the door latch and try to open it. If this allows the door to open your hinge bushing are worn out and allowing the door to sag putting it's weight on the door latch. This is common on drivers doors because of being the most used.

Red warning light is staying on when I switch on and drive my 2001 Grand Vitara dashboard (!) - what do i do?


all the above.

i cant see lamp, why not use photos so we dont need to guess, 1000 warning lamps used.

varies by country too. what lamp logos look like.



what it is , who knows? right, lacking a photo.

the key switch tells the warning box when you remove the key.

that buzz left in is the warning, take key out now.

seem the key inserted switch is stuck but id have to see lamp.

so yes that is switch not a sensor, (but sure one could call a switch a sensor.) and sure wires can fail. and connectors.

sure its electric, is sure is not vacuum.



the warning box can worn head lights left on

or exiting car key left in ignition.

do not fool with the key switch on air bag cars or risk death or broken neck with AIR BAGS.

read the manual, see the 1000 warning there.

and the words, DEFEAT the bags using X procedures first.

do so.

May have to push on left side of fuel door. Otherwise should be lever on floor by left side of drivers seat. Check owners manual in glove box if you have one. Sometimes there ia an electric button on dash with picture of fuel pump on it.

My 87 944s has been setting in the garage for 2 weeks without being driven aand now it will not start. It sounds like it is not getting gas. what do you think I should do? Big C.


Take off the rubber intake boot between the air filter & the Mass air flow sensor.Take a screwdriver and open the air door in the Sensor. This will activate the fuel pump when the ign key is turned to the on position. Do you hear the fuel pump? If not check the fuel pump fuse and relay over the drivers left leg area. You may have to bypass the relay by connecting the #30 post with the #87 post. If no results, bad pump.

1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work


will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

Interior lights won't turn on when door opens


you have a bad drivers door latch, the micro switch inside is not telling the computer that the latch has been opened which would normally mean the door is open.

1997 Toyota corolla - warning noise when lights left on - not working on drivers side!


The ground circuit for the driver side door switch is compromised, or the door switch is bad. Try this: Remove the black rubber cover from the door swich. Using a 10 millimeter wrench or socket, loosen & tighten the switch retention bolt. See if the dome light flickers. If so, the ground on the switch is bad, & just needs cleaned up. If not, remove the switch, and touch the wire behind the switch to the body,or the bolt hole. If the dome light lights, you need a door switch. Your problem is entirely in the door switch/ground/wiring. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
