Could most propably have been either a broken vacuum pipe or a leaking servo in either doors,boot or fuel flap.Mostly the vacuum lines get disconnected in the boot area,since they get easily disturbed by something heavy.Let the pump operate and listen for a leak ...
The best way is to work with a small vacuum hand pump with gauge and to isolate in stages and test each door,boot and line for leaks...

All these components operate via the central locking control unit. Check fuses No.4, 37, 6, 3, 14. If these fuses are ok, the control unit may be faulty and need to be replaced. The control unit is located behind the right dash panel.[on right hand drive vehicle , may be else where on left hand drive vehicle.

My central locking on my 1997 vw golf just stopped working it sounded like it was trying to work but now does nothing. also the gas tank cover wont open as its stuck on lock...any advice on what i can try?


the gas flap is operated with the central locking,stand at rear of car with tailgate open,just inside to the right,under the floormat you will find the central locking pump.but first renew the batteries in the remotes then unlock the car with the key and hold the key over for 30 secs, the windows may go down,
then lock the car with the key and hold over for 30 secs,the windows may go up and the sunroof,if fitted will close,then unlock with remote button held down for 30 secs,this will reset alarm/central locking.
if you need to get to gas flap, pull carpet away in boot behind flap area and pull wire to unlock....

Switch ignition ON. Insert key to be programmed into driver's door lock. Lock vehicle manually. Press lock or unlock button. Wait at least 1 second. Press lock or unlock button again. Vehicle horn sounds to indicate correct programming. Keys can also be programmed using diagnostic equipment.
NOTE: A maximum of 4 keys can be programmed.
