SOURCE: 1998 Jetta Passenger Door Won't Unlock

I had a similar problem with my son's 1998 Jetta K2 4 door. I sprayed loads of WD40 into the locking area from the end of the door through the clip slot, worked the mechanism sprayed some more and finally it start working. My mechanic said these are very prone to moisture causing rusting on the moving parts.

SOURCE: the driver side door lock broke on my 98 jetta door want open

according to my partsman (who has had great advice for many years), you do not have to remove the door panel to replace the door handle which contains the cylinder lock. the handle is released with a screw which you can see when you open the door. you will need a starhead screwdriver or socket. A new handle costs around $40 at a parts store in my area. call around for a locksmith who will re-key your key to the new lock or use the key which comes with the new lock, your choice. i am in dealing with this also

I tried to program a new fob for a 1999 Altima. And nothing worked





1.   Close and lock all doors with the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch.

2.   Insert key into ignition and remove it from the ignition key cylinder at least six times within 10 seconds. Your Hazard Lamps will flash if you have performed this step successfully. NOTE: Withdraw key completely from ignition cylinder each time. If this procedure is performed too fast, system will not enter programming mode.

3.   Insert key into the ignition cylinder and turn to the ACC position.

4.   Within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the remote transmitter. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

5.   If there are any remaining transmitters (including the old ones), unlock then lock all doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and within 5 seconds, push ANY button on the next remote. Your Hazard Lamps should flash. Repeat this step for each transmitter (including any existing transmitters).

6.   Turn the key to the OFF position, remove keys from the ignition, unlock doors using the driver’s side power lock/unlock switch and open the driver side door.




Make sure you have the right fob for your car.

this can be a big problem so will start on easiest first. and try to repair as going, the passenger door the problem with this could be the solenoid for the door lock. and or the switches in the lock. driver door has the same but is the master door. ie if you open door from unlocking at pass door it will only open this door, drivers side will open all doors. flashing hazards this could be because the alarm is not completely turned off this could be because of the doors, mainly the drivers side. try to find the fault with the door lock and get back to me when you have found the fault. you will need a meter to check for volts and the switches, check them as lock unlock from the inside and the key to make sure they working. dpd spray should be able to clean them if you can spray into the lock and housing that is plastic. give a good flush out after its working wipe up the mess from the spray and mear grease on the lock moving parts.

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.


Make sure that all the doors are closed and unlocked and wait for dome light to go out before starting.


Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch


Open drivers door


3 on/lock


Close/open drivers door


Wait 8 secs


On/lock/on (MY06-07) OR 2 on/lock OR on/lock (MY08)

Try putting the key in the door and turn the key to lock the door twice quickly to lock all doors then turn it to unlock the doors twice quickly to unlock all the doors. Then if that doesnt work check all the doors, trunk, and hood for the push button sensors that enable the theft deterent system make sure the buttons move in and out smoothly and are not sticking.

The horn chirp can be disable by pressing the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously until the hazard lights flash, and no enable press the lock and unlock until the horn chirp.
To reprogram (enter new ID) key fob (keyless remote controller) follow the steps.
1. Close all doors and lock all doors
2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition key cylinder more than six times within 10 seconds. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash.) NOTE: Key should be withdrawn from ignition key cylinder completely each time.
NOTE: Do not rush the insertion/removal key cycling process. The side marker/tail/license lamps and interior illumination will flash twice when this step is accurately completed.
3. Insert key on ignition key cylinder and turn ignition key switch to "AAC" position At this time, the new ID code is entered and original (previous) ID codes are erase.
4. Press any button on the new remote controller once. (The hazard warning lamp will then flash)
NOTE: Do not press the button more than one time in the above step. If the button is pressed more than one time, the programming procedure will not be successful.

If there is only one remote controller skip step 5.
5. Additional ID code entry Release the door lock, then lock again with door lock/unlock switch (In power window main switch)

Need to program remote keyless entry for 2003 nissan pulsar?


If it is a 2003 model year vehicle follow this procedure. If it doesn't work, you may have the wrong fob which happens all the time.

Sit in vehicle and close all doors.
COMPLETELY insert and remove ignition key more than six times within 10 seconds.
Hazard lights should flash twice.
Turn ignition to ACC position
Press and hold any button on the new key fob hazard lights will flash twice
For a second key fob using the master lock switch, lock and unlock the doors then hold down any button on the second remote until the hazard lamps flash twice.
Then you are done open the door to exit the programming mode.
If the lamps didn't flash when holding down the key fob make sure you have the right key fob, they are different for each car.

Keyless entry keylob want lock or unlock doors or trunk.change battery and checked all fuses.


You need to program the remote. Get in to the car and LOCK all doors with the switch on drivers side door. Take the key and insert it into the ignition cylinder in and out 6-10 times, until the flashers/hazards flash on your dash board. Or just keep putting the key in and out (nice and easy now, not fast) until you see the lights on dash flash. After the lights flash, turn the key into ACC mode to make the whole dash light up.(do not start car) .With the key in ACC position, hit any button on remote, that will make the hazards flash again. Turn key off and unlock door with switch again. Open door.DONE.
Good luck.
