SOURCE: 2006 Jetta TDI. Drivers door
I had what sounds like the same problem on a 2001 GTI VR6 and found that the solder joints on the driver's side door lock module were cracked. I removed the module and resoldered the joints. This corrected the remote functions, key in and lights on dinging and dome lights lighting when the door is opened. Still working on correcting the power mirrors but everything else is working again.
This URL has excellent instructions for removing the module. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107

Unfortunately there is no solution to this except to take it back to Iveco for reprogramming.
I am led to believe from my locksmith that there are two types of transponders generally put into cars and vans.
The first is a simple chip wtih a code which matches a code in the car / Van
The second is a chip which has a set of codes. They are read in order and the car / van remembers which one was used last. If you use the wrong code in the sequence then the car / van will ignore it and not let you start the engine.
The Iveco is unfortunately in the second group. If, like me, you snap your key, you can superglue a new key to the old and it works fine. The chip doesn't need to be "too" close to the barrel. Yes, it looks ugly, but it's much cheaper!

it is probably your door lock has gone into safe mode.you need a new door lock.try using the lock/unlock button on your remote or on the drivers door button and gently tap the door handle with your hand while pressing the lock/unlock button,carefull not to dent your car.if that does not work,try disconnecting the cars battery for a few minutes,but note the vehicle might pick up fault codes which need a diagnostic machine to clear...good luck
