I had this happen with a different vehicle. "My" issue was the security system. When I disconnected the wires going into the doors, it tripped the security system into the ignition lockout mode. I had to reset the computer (free and it only takes a few minutes). Mine was able to be reset with one of the code readers from O'Reilly Auto Parts which they will let you use for free. Some vehicles have a reset button built in. If you have a security system on your VW, first make sure all wires were reconnected and not broken during the installation of the doors. If everything checks out ok, then give your local VW dealer a call and ask to speak to someone in the service department. As the service person if there is a security system reset button anywhere on your car.

My instrument says my drivers door is open when it is not. I can open my car with the remote, but can not lock it. Is it the Comfort Control Module? VW Passat 2001. 2.0L


the problem you are having is the drivers door latch mecanism, i just changed one on a 2002 jetta yesterday, the electronics in the latch get worn out, the only place to get one if from a dealer.

Reset service interval alarm on VW Passat-01?


This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer.
1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors.
2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand.
3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench).
4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button.
Good luck and thank you using Fixya

Hi

If the coolant temperature sensor is of the 4 wire type then these are a common failure on VW's.
