Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

I'm locked out of my 2002 Jetta. The door lock doesn't work and neither does the remote (new batteries didn't do the trick). I don't want to pay to have the car towed to the dealer. How can I pop the lock? (i.e. Coat hanger etc.)

Don't use that use slimjim available from auto parts and place it around the middle area of the window. Make sure the tool is between the glass and the wheather stripping with the hook towards you. Rock it left to right while slowly pulling up to catch the door release cable. Once snagged, pull it slowly until you hear a clunk. No need to push tool all the way to bottom because the cable is about 10" from the weather stripping.

2008 Volswagen Jetta power locks will not lock doors


Hey- so i had this same problem. Neither of the rear doors would lock/unlock consistantly. All I had to do was spray a ton of WD-40 in the latch area and all around where the red manuel lock lever was on the door and then work that red manuel lock lever back and forth for about 20 min and now it works great! Hope this helps.

97 jetta doors won't lock


I assume the doors can be manually locked. The problem is in the electrical circuit. That means anything from a faulty switch (the lock / Unlock button) to a loose connection. If both switches don't work then look for a blown fuse. If one switch works and the other doesn't than remove the switch and inspect its connection. If it's ok then check the switch. If both switch and connections are OK then you'll have to remove the door panel and access the lock mechanism.

How do I get my key remote to lock/unlock my toyota rav4 2002 model? I changed the battery because I thought that was the problem but it is still not working. The red light on the remote comes on but then...


You will need to try reprogramming the remote 1st, below is the complete procedure. If the reprogram doesn't restore function then you will need the dealer to test the keyless entry system, you may have a bad module or remote (only applies if both remotes don't work).

Start with the key out of the ignition, drivers door is open all others closed and
drivers door is unlocked.

2. Perform these steps within 5 seconds.
A. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.
B. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

3. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Insert the key into the ignition(Do NOT Turn) Pull key out.

4. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Close then open the drivers door.
B. Close then open the drivers door.
C. Close the drivers door
D. Insert the key into ignition and leave it in ignition.
E. Turn the ignition to ON (Do NOT Start) then back to OFF.
F. Remove the key from the ignition.

5. Within 3 seconds, the power door locks should lock then unlock automatically
indicating successful entry into programming mode.
Return to step 1 if the locks do not cycle at this point.

6. Perform these steps within 40 seconds.
A. Press the lock and unlock buttons on the remote simultaneously for 1.5 seconds.
B. Immediately after letting go of the lock and unlock buttons,
Press the lock button by itself and hold for 2 seconds. Within 3 seconds, the door
locks should lock and then unlock once indicating successful programming. If
the door locks cycle twice, repeat steps A and B in step 6 as the remote was
not accepted.
C. Repeat steps A and B in step 6 for each new remote.

7. Open drivers door.

Does a 2002 Toyota RAV4 have a relay for window motor? This car is one of the cheap-material-made junk one ever buys, it took Toyota years to finally recall transmission problem on sears of 2001-2003 more...


Hi, there is only one relay for all of the windows, so that is not the problem. The likely problem is the switch. I recommend you test the switch using an ohmmeter.
In the case of the door lock, that problem may be a failed lock motor. I recommend you apply power directly to the lock motor to see if it works. If it does, check the switch. If not, replace the motor.

Reprogram keyless entry


It took me a few attempts to program a new keyless remote for my 2002 Chevy Blazer.
Insert key into ignition but don' turn it yet. While holding down the UNLOCK switch on the door, the trick is to cycle the ignition ON OFF ON OFF as quickly as possible then release the UNLOCK switch. If done correctly the door locks will cycle 1x to acknowledge. Then hold both the unlock and lock buttons down on the remote for about 15 seconds. The locks should cycle again to confirm...Hope this helps.

VW Jetta keyless entry remote not working


newer remotes just pull apart, no screws

first detached the half with the pivoting key
just pull that half away from the other half

on the half without the key attach
it splits apart to expose the battery (usually a 2032 watch battery)
you may need a small flat head screw driver to help to split it apart
