Question about 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio

2 Answers

Door locks and keyless

The automatic door locks do not work. The switches on both doors don't work and the key less doesn't work. I listened for the relay click and I can not hear it. Where is the relay located? Where is the remote receiver located for the keyless? The big problem is I don't have any kind of component diagram.
Does anyone know where I can get that and a specific wiring diagram. I bought a Haynes manual for it but it is geared towards other models.
Thanks,
Bob

Mervia. Why is central locking not locking any door?


It's only an educated guess. If all other locks switches are working it' either the switch panel itself or an electrical short. Switches are popular, get it checked first

My keyless entry for my 2008 Volvo s 40 won't work. I've tried replacing the battery but it still doesn't work. Anything I may can do before spending money on a new key.?


How are you trying to open the door , button on key fob ? With this system you can pull up on the drivers handle an it activates Antennas in the external side door handles (C30/C70 front doors, S40/V50 rear doors)
  • Antennas in the passenger compartment and cargo compartment
  • An antenna in the rear bumper
  • Quick lock motors in the lock units in the side doors
  • The remote keyless entry (RKE) receiver receives a signal from the key
  • The switch in the clutch pedal (manual transmissions) or a signal from the brake pedal switch via the central electronic module (CEM) (automatic transmissions)
  • Key-in switch.
  • Switch in door handle and lock button on handle .
    If a door handle is pulled outward, a switch closes that wakes up the system and activates the antennas in the handles on the side where the handle has been pulled out. If a valid key is within a radius of approx. 1.5 metres from the handle, the relevant door will open and the vehicle will unlock one or several doors. Which doors are unlocked depends on the settings for the system. The vehicle can also be unlocked if the handle is affected on the tailgate.

    I used csorb's instructions to reprogram a master key for my 2000 Lexus RX300. The ignition works perfectly, but the doors don't lock or unlock.


    Hi!!
    I believe your alarm is in the PASSIVE MODE, here is how it works.

    PASSIVE MODE Setting (Arming) Anti-Theft System The system will automatically set 30 seconds after following methods are performed: Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Exit vehicle, and close all doors. After performing this, anti-theft indicator on left side of instrument panel will light continuously for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, anti-theft indicator will blink once per second. When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch.
    CANCELING THE ALARM AND REPROGRAMING MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
    Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm) When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of following methods to cancel system setting:
    • Unlock left or right front door using key.
    • Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.
    • Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
    HERE IS HOW TO REPROGRAM THE ALARM IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESET IT.
    PROGRAMMING
    PASSIVE MODE NOTE:Initial mode is passive mode off. If there is a different signal in middle of programming, signal is invalid.
    Programming Passive Mode Off
    • Remove ignition key from ignition key cylinder. Ensure all doors (including back door) and engine hood are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
    • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
    • Open driver door.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
    • Unlock driver door lock knob.
    • Close and open driver door 2 times.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be off.
    Programming Passive Mode On
    • Remove ignition key from key cylinder. Ensure all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
    • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
    • Open driver door.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
    • Unlock driver door lock knob.
    • Close and open driver door 4 times.
    • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
    • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be on.

    I have a 2001 Accord and if I hit the unlock button and do not open any door within a certain amount of time (2-5 minutes) it automatically re-locks it. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this...


    Hi there,

    Hope the following procedures helps.

    TRANSMITTER TEST



    NOTE:

    If the doors unlock or lock with the transmitter, but the LED on the transmitter does not come on, the LED is faulty; replace the transmitter.

    If any door is open, you cannot lock or unlock the door with the transmitter.

    If you unlocked the doors with the transmitter, but do not open any of the doors within 30 seconds, the doors relock automatically. ?

    The doors do not lock or unlock with the transmitter if the ignition key is inserted in the ignition switch.





    1. Press the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times to reset the transmitter.

    If the locks work, the transmitter is OK.

    If the locks don't work, go to step 2.



    2. Open the transmitter and check for water damage.

    If you find any water damage, replace the transmitter.

    If there is no water damage, go to step 3.

    3. Replace the transmitter battery (A) with a new one, and try to lock and unlock the doors with the transmitter by pressing the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times.

    If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

    If the doors don't lock and unlock, go to step 4.



    NOTE: The transmitters for LX models and EX models are different and are not interchangeable.



    4. Reprogram the transmitter, then try to lock and unlock the doors (see Transmitter Programming ).

    If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

    If the doors don't lock and unlock, replace the transmitter.



    TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

    Storing transmitter codes:

    The codes of up to three transmitters can be read into the keyless receiver unit memory. (If a fourth code is stored, the code which was input first will be erased.)



    NOTE: It is important to maintain the time limits between the steps.



    1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

    2. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

    3. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

    4. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

    5. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

    6. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

    7. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

    8. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

    9. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

    10. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

    11. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

    12. Confirm you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button again.

    13. Within 15 sec., aim the remaining transmitters at the keyless receiver unit (up to two additional ones) whose codes you want to store at the receiver, and press the transmitter lock or unlock buttons. Confirm that you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators after each transmitter code is stored.

    14. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and pull out the key.

    15. Confirm proper operation of the transmitters.

    Cheers!

    How can i program the key less?


    1. Close all the vehicle doors.
    2. Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
    3. Press and hold the DOOR unlock switch.
    4. While holding the DOOR lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
    5. Release the DOOR unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
    6. Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one keyless remote. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
    7. Repeat the previous step to program up to four transmitters.
    8. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (one more click forward) position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter mode.
    9. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
