2013 vw passat trunk will not open either with door switch or remote


Access the trunk from inside the car by putting the back seat down if it goes down or remove it. There's a emergency release inside the trunk

I have forgotten the lights on my passat and the battery went dead. Now I can not unlock the doors with my key remote nor manually. How can I open the doors


You can always open the trunk and have someone small enough crawl through the trunk... as long as they are old enough to know how to unlock the door once inside (just pull on the door handle).

The key should work in the driver's door though... not sure why it won't.

My instrument says my drivers door is open when it is not. I can open my car with the remote, but can not lock it. Is it the Comfort Control Module? VW Passat 2001. 2.0L


the problem you are having is the drivers door latch mecanism, i just changed one on a 2002 jetta yesterday, the electronics in the latch get worn out, the only place to get one if from a dealer.

My wife is stuck at the airport. the key fob on


On the driver's side door handle, there is a cap covering the key hole on the right side. On the bottom of the cap is a small ****. Use the valet key to pry it up and off. Then you may open the door, most likely sounding the alarm, so you will need to insert the remote in the ignition to stop the NOISE!!!! Hope this helps. This is how I lock my remote away when I go somewhere to run.

Trunk / rear lid won't open


You can try this I think the latch is just slightly missaligned.Did you put something in the trunk and push down on the trunk?Try to push down hard on the trunk where the latch is a few times while pressing the remote.If this works and it opens look for marks on the latch indicating rubing,file down,spray with WD 40.Good Luck.

Passat trunk stuck shut - 3 repair men have not been able to fix! Please Help!!


I have an ugly feeling that the adustment for the latch mechanism slipped so that the stationary part is now moving with the mobile part.
I would almost bet that you can lift the trunk lid a little.

Is there no access whatsoever through the floor of the trunk?
On most vehicles there are holes under the mat that allow access to places not accessible from outside.
If your spare is in a horizontal well, then it really isn't likely that you could reach the latch assembly even if you have plugged holes.
You might check your owner's manual to see if your car is equipped with an emergency release for children trapped in the trunk by accident.
If there is, you may be able to reach it by drilling a smaller hole behind the lower seat cushion which should be removable even if the upper one is not.

I confess to being very curious about the potential cure for this problem.
If you solve it, you might post it back for the benefit of others.
