SOURCE: Trunk wont open on my 2001 vw tdi jetta

You can open it old school. Insert the key in the trunk lock in the VW emblem and turn it while pushing down on the trunk lid with the other hand a little bit. It should open. The plastic arm that the motor is pushing to unlock may be broken. I have the same problem. You can see it if you unscrew the fabric from the trunk lid and press the button on the remote. There are about a dozen fuzzy head screws (nicely masked btw.) that hold it. I am still looking for the proper name of the part so I can order it for my car.

SOURCE: hood release 2004 VW Jetta

There's a hood release lever inside your Jetta by your left knee. Pull this lever to partially release the hood. Then reach your hand under the front center portion of your hood to locate the external hood release lever. pull on this lever to fully release the hood. Two (2) separate hood release levers in two different locations.

Dead battery, can't open doors


If you have the keyless entry system, you either have a dead battery in the car, or in your key fob. Regardless, you can gain entry to the vehicle using the emergency key concealed inside your fob. Press the narrow button near the metal end of the fob to separate the parts. They metal piece has a key attached that fits into the lock on the driver's door.

03 vw beetle, battery is dead and door key cylinder is broken and just spins. How do I open the door or hood? Keyless remote will not work with battery dead?


Wow. You have a real problem here. I see a couple of choices for you.
#1 Can you get in through the passenger door or the trunk?
#2 You can break a window that will allow you to reach the door locks.
#3 You need a membership in an auto club or a friend with AAA. They will open your door using a 'slim-jim' or a 'wonder tool'. This will use up 1 of the 4 emergency calls that are allowed per year.
I would suggest the last option. Just ask around at work or check with your neighbors. You cannot 'roll-over' those 4 uses per year. It's use 'em or lose 'em. Many people will share their membership, if you simply ask. Good luck

I would first look at broken wires in between the doors and car's frame, in the accordians. We often see this.
