Mk3 golf vr6-central locking probs

Central locking on my mk3 golf vr6 is not working.Can open drivers door,can open passengers door with key but cant open the boot.The key doesnt go all the way in. In the past it has managed to open the windows by itself when it has been parked up!! It also decided once to not let me un lock it at all. i had to hold the key in the un-lock position so the windows came down to allow me to pull up the door lock manually. 2 garages the car has been into for other reasons were not very interested in looking into the problem!!

Cheers Mark

Sound like different problems. In the matter of your rear passenger door, you may have a loose or broken cable which connects the handle to the release mechanism.
As for the driver door, you may have a bad cylinder or complete door door latch.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

Mk3 golf when central locking is activted the electric windows go


you have just found this out.it is a standard feature of all vw/audi/seat/skoda cars
unlock/hold key over,the windows will go down
lock/hold key over the windows will go up
then unlock the car with the remote,car reset.
sit in car with engine on,switch off engine(do not open any door)driver can open/close any window(you can even put your hand into window frame and it will rollback,all on its(not for fun)
if windows rollback after you have used button to close them you may have sticky runners/rubbers.
this is not in the hand book,tell all your friends.....only a german car.....

Drivers door lock!


Try squirting some WD40 into the lock and moving the key back and forth which may free it up.

Other possibility which works on many cars is to swap the driver and passenger locks around.
