Not positive if it works on VW's but try locking/ unlocking the passenger door with the key. There are sensors in both doors.

Door wont open with the master key,a 1997 volkswagen golf 5 door


Does your key have a chip? Some keys have a chip that is part of the cars' anti-theft system....they can go bad or be damaged; these types of keys can be replaced and re-programmed. If the key opens the passenger door or the hatch and not the driver's door check the wiring and locking mechanism for that door. You might also check if there is a fuse or relay switch/sensor for it....sometimes cleaning the main lock switch inside the car and checking that the wires have a good connection will solve the problem. Posting more info about the problem and if there was any type of work (battery replaced?) or other problems before this happened would be extremely helpful. Good Luck!

98 golf anti theft problem


Put the key in the driver door lock (or the trunk lock if you don't trust the driver's door- quite often on a vehicle of this age the wires break in the door and it won't electrically de-activate the alarm due to the broken wires)
Disconnect the battery.
Turn the key to the unlock position (toward the front of the car if using the driver or passenger doors) and release it- it will go back to centered, but will retain slack in the forward direction
Then reconnect the battery. You may get one beep out of the alarm horn. If it beeps continually, turn the key to unlock again.
As long as the alarm is de-activated it will not prevent the car from starting. If you are still having a problem it is not alarm related.

Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help

1997 ES 300 How to reset anti-theft system when car won't start


With the doors shut, insert the key into the drivers door lock. Lock and unlock the door 5 times. This should reset the system. If that doesn't work you should contact a qualified repair shop.

Anti theft system


I'll assume you used the remote here (like most of us do) to arm the alarm. Try turning the key in the door lock - turn it to lock the car (which arms the alarm), and then unlock it (which should disarm it). Do this a couple of times if need be, and it should disarm and allow you to start the car.
