Try the spare key fob and then a fresh battery in the fob.
many auto parts stores will test and change the remote for you too.

SOURCE: VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote

If your lock actuator engages (you can hear the sound it makes) with the remote/electric button on the door, but the trunk doesn't open then the problem is likely a broken plastic arm that the electric assembly pushes. You can see it if you unscrew the inside cover from the trunk lid and try the remote. I started having the same issue with VW Jetta 2002 GLS that was rear-ended 8 months ago. My guess is the cracked plastic finally gave out in the cold weather.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 99 passat doors don't lock right

Fixed it! Four broken wires which had corroded through because of water getting in. Reconnected with suitable wires = all works again! The wires are near the control unit under the LH floor. You will see tell-tale blue corrosion from copper wires seaping through the insulation tape.

My keys are locked in my trunk. AAA was able to open the door but the alarm is on so there is no power in the car. vw says new key will take 3 or 4 days. I need my car!!! 2013 passat


Ther is a lock at the driver door. The plastic cover where the key insert slot should be pulls off. A lock smith will have a master slide set that would be able to unlock the car. You can access the boot by opening the split fold down rear seats.

I have forgotten the lights on my passat and the battery went dead. Now I can not unlock the doors with my key remote nor manually. How can I open the doors


You can always open the trunk and have someone small enough crawl through the trunk... as long as they are old enough to know how to unlock the door once inside (just pull on the door handle).

The key should work in the driver's door though... not sure why it won't.
