Hi! Does your car comes with a keyless entry? This may happen if you bypass the door locks. Try using the remote if it will do the same. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Hi, thanks for your reply.
    No, I only have a key, not even a remote central locking.

    Are you the first owner of this car? There may have been security unit installed earlier that has been disconnected and acting up now.

I would start by stopping or calling a dealer regarding recall/technical service bulletin regarding your throttle position sensor. Have you VIN & Mileage ready, to see if it's covered under powertrain warranty.

this can be a big problem so will start on easiest first. and try to repair as going, the passenger door the problem with this could be the solenoid for the door lock. and or the switches in the lock. driver door has the same but is the master door. ie if you open door from unlocking at pass door it will only open this door, drivers side will open all doors. flashing hazards this could be because the alarm is not completely turned off this could be because of the doors, mainly the drivers side. try to find the fault with the door lock and get back to me when you have found the fault. you will need a meter to check for volts and the switches, check them as lock unlock from the inside and the key to make sure they working. dpd spray should be able to clean them if you can spray into the lock and housing that is plastic. give a good flush out after its working wipe up the mess from the spray and mear grease on the lock moving parts.

It sounds like a door ajar switch is broken. The door switches are located in the door on the latch mechanism. To get to it you will need to remove the door trim panel to gain access to the door latch.

The switch is available for around $20 - autozone part number SW1979 or SW3688

2004 vw Passat TDI 130bhp not starting after >8hrs


simplest answer first,and this does not apply to a hot engine,The engine heaters work from a time switch on the door(would you believe)and the routine is, open door,climb in,put on belt,put key in ignition and turn on when orange light goes out.this allows the cold start heaters time to work(about 20 secs).sounds a pain but the number of times this has been all it is,when you put key in ignition, the fuel pump charges the system.hence the squirt noise,also the car has to reccognise the key(immobiliser system)also try using wynns/redexe to clean injectors...

Key fob / immobilizer not unlocking door


sounds like the security part of the system went bad
take the key fob to the dealer and have it reflashed
if that fails replace the security computer or you can disconnect it from the car you won't have the system but the hazards won't come on unless you turn them on

The radio and lights die out as I turn the key to start up


It could be a loose ground connection; and there are plenty of them so just start looking around for loose or corroded, disconnected wires.

Need to program remote keyless entry for 2003 nissan pulsar?


If it is a 2003 model year vehicle follow this procedure. If it doesn't work, you may have the wrong fob which happens all the time.

Sit in vehicle and close all doors.
COMPLETELY insert and remove ignition key more than six times within 10 seconds.
Hazard lights should flash twice.
Turn ignition to ACC position
Press and hold any button on the new key fob hazard lights will flash twice
For a second key fob using the master lock switch, lock and unlock the doors then hold down any button on the second remote until the hazard lamps flash twice.
Then you are done open the door to exit the programming mode.
If the lamps didn't flash when holding down the key fob make sure you have the right key fob, they are different for each car.

Interior lights won't turn on when door opens


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.

Keyless entry keylob want lock or unlock doors or trunk.change battery and checked all fuses.


You need to program the remote. Get in to the car and LOCK all doors with the switch on drivers side door. Take the key and insert it into the ignition cylinder in and out 6-10 times, until the flashers/hazards flash on your dash board. Or just keep putting the key in and out (nice and easy now, not fast) until you see the lights on dash flash. After the lights flash, turn the key into ACC mode to make the whole dash light up.(do not start car) .With the key in ACC position, hit any button on remote, that will make the hazards flash again. Turn key off and unlock door with switch again. Open door.DONE.
Good luck.
