1998 golf gti vr6 power sunroof doesn't close when i turn key at the door


Check your wires and fuses, I am having a similar problem myself as the windows open, but not the sunroof and this is a feature that VW had on most of these models with power locks, even my 96 Gti did it. I will repost with what fixed it ASAP.

The locking mechanism on the drivers side door,is locked in the closed positin.Cant get door to shut?


cheffenwolfb, What you need to do is to take a screwdriver and put it in the catch in place of the locking striker. Pull the door handle to the open position and pull the locking catch open with the screwdriver. Try the door a few times to be sure that it doesn't do it again. A little lubrication on the catch wouldn't hurt. Good luck with this.

Unable to open gas tank on 2009 volkswagen tiguan


VW lock the gas tank with central locking
possibly the actuator stuck or dead
or the door not unlocked
try locking and unlocking all doors several times
and observe if all doors are responding
If all doors are locking and unlock the gas tank should also unlock
If not most likely the actuator or solenoid is bad
at 2009 this should be a warranty issue so let VW pay for it before you try it.

Hope this helps, it it does please leave feedback Thank You and Good Luck

I have a vw 2003 beetle convertible, with a problem with the window. It wont drop down to open door...or go up after i close the door. It opens ok with the button otherwise?


That sounds like a door lock problem.The door lock sends a signal to the convienience control unit to activate the window so you can openthe door and raises the window when you close the door.Try another door lock.good luck.

Didn't know my 93 vw golf had an alarm, now I had to disconnect the battery to shut if off.. what do I do to fix this?


I'm not sure if you have an aftermarket or factory alarm, but try this: hook up the battery and try unlocking/locking the door with the key. If you have a remote door lock, hit unlock/lock on that. I have come across a couple of cars this was all it took to stop the alarm, never tried with a VW though. Hope it works, good luck!

My mom, got inside the car. and when she was inside she accidentaly click the PANIC button ON, of course Click it again, so it would go off. But now, the car doesn´t start! and it was working...


from outside the car make sure all doors a closed completely, make sure hood and trunk are also closed. lock the vehicle with the remote, unlock it and repeat, lock and unlock. if it still wont start, put the key in the driver door lock, lock and unlock the door three times with the key, then try to start.

2003 VW Jetta ''door open'' alarm goes off while driving


The door latch located in the door panel has a micro switch built into it assembly. It is what detects an open door. A new latch is about $150. If you could find a shop to replace it for you. You could also try buying some plastic-safe contact cleaner/lubricant and spraying the latch assembly out and opening/closing the door a few times to work it in.
