This how a dealer does it:
DOOR CONTROL TRANSMITTER
REGISTRATION
1. REGISTRATION OF RECOGNITION CODE
HINT:
 The add mode is used to retain the already registered codes while registering a new recognition code.
This mode is used when adding a transmitter. If the number of the registered codes exceeds 4, the previously
registered code will be correspondingly erased in order, starting from the first registered code.
 The rewrite mode is used to erase all the previously registered codes and register only new recognition
codes. This mode is used when exchanging the transmitter or the door control receiver for new one.
 The prohibition mode is used to erase all the registered codes and cancel the wireless door lock function.
Use this mode when the transmitter is lost.
 The confirmation mode is to confirm how many recognition codes have already been registered before
an additional registration of a recognition code.
 All the following registration procedures must be performed in order continuously.
(a) The vehicle should be in the following conditions.
(1) The key is not inserted in the ignition key cylinder.
(2) Driver’s door is OPENED. (The other doors are CLOSED)
(3) Driver’s door is UNLOCKED.
(b) Perform the following operations to select the desired mode.
(1) Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch twice within 5 seconds.
(2) After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the
key into the ignition key cylinder and remove it.
(3) After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the
key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
(4) Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back to LOCK at approximately 1 second interval 1
to 5 times to select a mode.(2 times for rewrite mode) Then remove the key from the ignition key cylinder.
(5) After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door
LOCK-UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode.
(c) Register the new recognition codes :
(1) Within 40 seconds after the add mode or the rewrite mode has been selected, press the LOCK and
UNLOCK switches on the transmitter switch simultaneously for 1.0 - 1.5 seconds.
Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the switches for more than 1.0
seconds.
(2) Within 3 seconds after the transmitter switch has been turned OFF, the LOCK-UNLOCK operation
will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is
completed correctly. In case the LOCK-UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of
recognition code has failed. Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once again.
(3) If the multiple transmitter to be registered, repeat step (c) within 40 seconds after the previous registration.
this is why the dealer charges for this

SOURCE: My 2003 Honda CRV ...drivers side door does not

you may need to replace the door locking actuator, they do tend to go bad over times. does the driver side door lock automatic when using the lock button on the driver side. if you can lock and unlock the driver side door with a switch, my guess would not be the locking actuator, it might be in the remote locking module.

Look for a short in the wiring harness in the door. The wires from the door lead to the convenience module (controls the doors and windows and some other settings including remote fob) that is under the dash. It sounds like some wires are crossed. VWs are also notorious for having problems with window regulators. They make the windows go up and down and are in the doors. Something might have happen to that and it cause a short. VW just extended the warranty on the window regulators to seven years because of these problems so you should be able to take it to a dealer and not get charged (this is in the U.S. at least, don't know about the rest of the world). The extended warrranty was not limited to original owners but you might want to ask the service people about it first.

SOURCE: back door on drivers side locked wont open or

can you lift the lock knob up at all?? If you can lift it and the door stays locked, the linkage inside the door is broken.. if you can't lift it up, then the linkage is most likely seized... you'll need to remove the door panel to actually see it

Get Door To Open With Dead Battery So I can pop the Hood Switch


I imagine the obvious answer is to use a key in the door lock cylinder. The reason you have done this is because there is no door lock cylinder! You only have a fob is my guess, that electronically opens the doors. Dead battery..and the fob no longer works. Don't worry, examine your fob and there should be a way to open it. Carefully open the fob and surprise! There is a key inside of it! Now take that key and there ahould be a key lock cylinder above your rear license plate. You should be able to open your rear hatch. Now somewhere to the drivers side in the rear compartment there should be some sort of pull you can use which will open the drivers door. Hope that helps you out!

First things first...replace the cheaper part first, the battery. It that works, great! If not, then you may need a new key fob then have it programed to your system.

Keyless entry remote wont progam


It will not unlock the door the first time you push the button. This only registers the key fob ID into the computer. When you press the button on the key fob, press it only once and wait for the hazzard lights to flash twice again. Then open the driver's door. The key fob will not become active until you open the driver's door.

If your hazzard lights do not flash after you press the button on the key fob, there is most likely a problem with the key fob. Either it is not the correct key fob for your vehicle, or the battery is not in correctly or the key fob is defective.

The only other advice I can give you is to have it programmed with a scan tool. This way, the scan tool can verify that the computer in your vehicle is receiving the signal from the key fob.

It can be done either way, but if the "no scanner" way does not work, the rest of the system should be checked for possible problems.
