Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.

some times the door switch can be faulty. and it may be coincidence that the interior switch is faulty too. i have owned alot of S- series trucks and a few of them have done this to me. you need to individually check each door for switch contact

There is a known issue with the wiring harness in the doors. It's possible that the passenger door also has a bad harness (assuming they swapped out the one in the driver's door) Is that a correct assumption? It may still be related to your original problem too. I've heard of disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes to reset the electrical (door switches). You should def give that a try - it's free.
Also check out the forums at www.tdiclub.com - those guys know their VW TDI's...

Testimonial: "The battery disconnect did not work but I am glad to hear it's not just me."
SOURCE: no power in driver side door
I just fix the same problem :(
Two wires in harness were broke. Let me give you some instructions to fix this. 1- Remove the inside panel. then remove the conection that is in the middle betwen the door and the body of the car, is like black cover for the wires. In my case 2 of these wires were broke.
2- Remove the screws of the door in the frame then close the door and pull the door only a few inches just to have acces of your hand to pull the wires.
3- Add another piece of cable, to meke these cables longer, and put everything back.
