Look for a short in the wiring harness in the door. The wires from the door lead to the convenience module (controls the doors and windows and some other settings including remote fob) that is under the dash. It sounds like some wires are crossed. VWs are also notorious for having problems with window regulators. They make the windows go up and down and are in the doors. Something might have happen to that and it cause a short. VW just extended the warranty on the window regulators to seven years because of these problems so you should be able to take it to a dealer and not get charged (this is in the U.S. at least, don't know about the rest of the world). The extended warrranty was not limited to original owners but you might want to ask the service people about it first.

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

Disarm car alarm without remote merc


I do know that if you put the key in the ignition after you open the door and cycle the key from off to on 3 times fast within 5 seconds the alarm will disarm. Whether or not it is for good is unknown since you have to lock your doors again at some point. Your remote is discontinued by Subaru, but the the newer remote for the 2005 to 2007 models will work on your car, unless you already have one. I hope this info helps!

Open the door manually with the key!

Many Ford Escapes have power door locks as standard equipment. This system consists of a lock switch, lock actuator and wiring harness. When you depress the lock switch, it sends an electronic signal through the harness to the actuator. The actuator moves an internal piston that either pulls the actuator hook down or pushes it up. The actuator hook connects to the lock rod, which either locks or unlocks the door, depending on which way you push the lock button. While this system won't work with a dead battery, the mechanical lock system remains unaffected by electrical power loss.

Insert the door lock key into the driver's door lock.
Turn the key counterclockwise one quarter turn.
Pull the door handle up until the Escape's door opens. Once the driver door is open, simply open the remaining doors by pulling the interior door handles until the doors open.

We took out the fuse for the rear lamps which also affects the power for the locks (did not know this) and now we can't get under the hood to put the fuse back in or use the keys to open the door. Any...


Even with a fuse out the key not the remote will unlock the doors. The key does not need electrical power to work only the remote. If the keys don't work you have oyhr problems. In that case a locksmith or auto lock out service can unlock the car.

The front driver door wont open with remote and now barely opens when u stick key in to open. sometimes still wont open driver door with key.need a solution


Your door lock solenoid needs to be lubricated. Remove the inner panel and spray a generous amount of white lithium grease,this can be found at most auto part stores, work the lock up and down while spraying and hit the linkages too, just for extra measure. Thanks, Dana

Key will only open drivers door you have to open rest of doors manualy


Your FOB may be programmed to press once to open the driver door, press twice to open the rest. This feature is to prevent uninvited guests jumping in the car when the driver getting inside the car the same time.
Check out the FOB key setting.

2003 Nissan Murano Driver door won't lock or unlock with keyfob


The key fob is the remote. But the remote type that works like a key. The remotes that you just need to carry on you to start the car or truck. That is a Key Fob.

Thanks Jay!

2003 Honda Pilot lighting problem


the driver's door has a switch which tells the multiplexer control unit that the door is open and the control unit then switches on the lights. It sounds like the switch is not making contact when the driver's door is open. The lights work and the other door switches work--so it isn't a fuse or multiplexer problem.
