Never heard of that before - the only times you change a door latch is when it has been damaged or the grip plate is badly adjusted. Has your car been in an accident or someone tried to steal it? If it's the plate that is out of position and the latch doesn't properly engages it why they haven't adjusted it?
And almost $1,000 for a 2 hour job and $180 in parts is way too much - they aren't polishing it with gold. Get another dealer, this one can't be trusted. Or you could even find a local repair shop that could do the same job for less than half , or even less if you decide to use second-hand parts.

Sounds like a bad door switch on one of the four doors. The switches have multiple contacts to serve both the dome light and the alarm system. The actual switch button is under a rubber boot with ribbed sides. The switches themselves are under the interior trim behind the doors.

Did you have an accident with this vehicle shortly before this happened ?
I have had this problem after my car was repaired by a body shop. One door latch was replaced by the VW dealer which solved the alarm problem but the battery still drained. Now they are saying it is the comfort control module.

Blown fuse?


you have a failed door latch . you will have to remove door panel and window regulator to get to the latch. you can check this by closing all doors then open one by one when you open one see if you dome lights come on if they do that latch is ok. common issue. water gets into the electrical portion and kills it. most likely just drivers door it is opened the most. 1-2 hours at a shop and problem should be gone.

VW Jetta alarm malfunction


Go to your local junk or scrapyard and pull them yourself. The dealer charges an average of 90-100 dollars an hour. So a lot of the money they quoted you for was probably for labor

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.
