Question about 2005 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Similar Problem I have a 2003 Jetta. Interior lights don't come on when driver's door is opened. The info center in the dash also doesn't show the open door. I have electric locks. Tried turning on the car's headlights and opened the door, but no chime. Unlocked the doors with the remote, got in the car, did not put the key in the ignition. The doors relocked after 15-20 seconds.

The sensor/ switch on the door jam is faulty. It is possibly just dirty, or stuck, or a wire has broken.

I have a 05 jetta and when i opentthe driver door the interior lights don't come on it doesn't ding and the dash doesn't show that the door is even open


A new door switch might be the answer, but the existing one may just be stuck in the closed position. See if you can free it up.

Doors wont lock. Windows won't work. Car thinks the door is locked because when I open the hood alarm goes off. Security light is flashing when doors are closed. Locks don't engage when driving...


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door. Could be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released. It could also be the body control module.

2006 Jetta TDI Electrical!!!


There is a known issue with the wiring harness in the doors. It's possible that the passenger door also has a bad harness (assuming they swapped out the one in the driver's door) Is that a correct assumption? It may still be related to your original problem too. I've heard of disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes to reset the electrical (door switches). You should def give that a try - it's free.

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.
