Question about Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Central locking is no longer working, got it fixed a while back at main dealers - new key and got it re programmed - was expensive. Stopped working now again, but the warrenty is out on it and I aint paying out again. However, I don't mind using the key in the door the old fashioned way, but the barrel is ceased up now, not from rust or anything, it's like something moved out of place inside in it. It felt wrong for a while - I oiled it, and it was grand for a bit then one day, stuck and won't budge. Could I swap it for the one on the passenger door, and if so how ?

You can get a new door key lock from the dealer their not hard to replace,do it on a weekend.A regular shop will take about an hour or two.The cost is time not the part.

Toyota matrix remote not unlocking car - battery is new


Check to see if your central locking still works on all doors and that you can also operate the driver's door central lock motor.
This can sometimes be an issue with the door lock motors themselves and not necessarily the key.

If the key turns in the lock, but does nothing, then the linkage has become disconnected or broken. The key is mechanical to the lock and the lock has a electrical switch to operate the central locking unit. Could be a simple broken clip from the lock barrel. Hope this helps

I lost my keys for my 2003 rodeo


you will have to get a dealer to cut new keys to code that dealers have access to and then get them to program to car but also erase old keys so vehicle wont start with old keys
or next more expensive option is new keys, ignition barrel and door barrels replaced which are differently same coded key and locks as well as programming and erasing old keys.
