Question about 2003 Volkswagen Beetle TDI

1 Answer

I have a 2003 VW Beetle, everything with it is fine except the key fob. For some reason it will lock the car and unlock the boot, but will not unlock the doors unless I do this manually putting the key into the car lock and then quickly switching on the engine to avoid the alarm blaring out. Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

Do you AAA, or roadside assistance? They will unlock it. Buy a VW Key, get code from dealership by VIN#, have locksmith make a key or dealership.

You probably caused a short circuit when you changed the light. Change fuse #14. Next time, don't turn the lights on until you are finished changing the lights.
