1991 Passat automatic door locks

I loaned my car out, and got it back with the door locks not working now. I dont have the diagram for the fuse box in the car, but i pulled each fuse and replaced the ones that needed replacing. This did not help. Any idea how this happened? and how to fix it?

    I dont have the diagram for the fuse box under the dash on the drivers side. so, one by one, i pulled the fuses, checked them, replaced the ones that looked faulty. (i only replace the small fuses). I then tried the door locks again and neither the driver or the passenger side work.

    My automatic door lock button on the keys as well as the interior button on the driver door panel will not operate. In addition, the fuel door release button located by the e-brake will not function as well. I am almost out of gas and don't want to force it open!!! Help.

Hi there!

It probably happened if the door was not fully closed, and was then locked, or was locked, then forced open from inside.

You say fuses had blown - and you replaced them? If so which ones?

This is quite an involved problem, as you need to trace where the fault lies. It will probably be only one door providing the fault.

If one motor is shorting (due to bent locking rods etc), then the whole system may fail to operate.

Check both front doors with the key if it's central locking. If one will not try to lock all four - that's the faulty one. If you get no power at all, then you will have to find the short.

Please contact again for more detail. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Apart from the fusebox on the far left of the dash, there is also a Fuse/Relay panel under the steering wheel, but you have to take off the plastic knee bolster part.

    Can you check those?

I have a 1991 Rolls Royce Silver Spur II. I have a few questions. The back window makes a noise but does not roll up or down. Next question the automatic door locks dont work. And finally I just replaced...


Back window is probably jammed or motor in it might be bad. Check the fuse block for the door lock fuse. You might want to have that new alternator checked out to see if it's putting out juice, also check to see if the wiring is hooked up correctly.

Front door locks on a 99 passat


You have the wrong KEY if it won't turn any locks.
You can use the KEY fob from another Passat.
The one you have was most likey not the original
and the car was reprogrammed to except that FOB.

The Fuse panel Is inside the DRIVES side.
Open the Driver door. Look at the side of the DAShboard.
THat Giant "B" Shapped plastic cover pops off.

Check the fuses...IF any are broken,black or no good.
REplace them

Hope this helps

Seat belt chime not working


I bet its a fuse. Look under your drivers side belly pan for a fuse box door. Pull the door open/off and look at the fuse diagram to see which one might be related to the seat belt and autol ock. Cross reference it and check the fuse to see if it isn't blown. If you dont see anything that relates to it or dont find any blown fuses, check the engine bay as often cars feature a second fuse box. Check that one for blown fuses as well. This is a very easy thing to do yourself, your randma could do it.

1991 vw passat 9A 16v 2l B Charging and instrument cluster problem One day car did not start-turn key and nothing at all.(no power to inst. cluster no turning, nothing) One hour later it did turned on and cranked. and run fine. Next day repeated.Battery was dead.When jumped jumper cable melted.The alternator was shorting. Replaced battery and alternator. But alternator is not charging.Alternator tested as good.Replaced anyway, for another alternator that also tested as good just for the heck of it. Still not charging and whole instrument cluster and radio have no power from the very first replacement repair till now. Car will run just fine with out other el. problems as far the battery have charge above 6-7 v. I checked fuses in fuse/relay panel.Did not see any fuse burned. Is there fusible link on charging system or other fuse or relays to check besides the ones on the fuse/relay panel? I there relay that control this? I know that is grounded good. I know that is connected to + battery good. Alt+battery good. There is small blue wire running from alternator?????? called the alt. control wire. I think is says d+ or something on the alt.terminal next to it. It seems that something prevents the alternator to output power. I measured the alt. terminal + and ground when connected and running and all I read is the battery voltage dropping. I think the blue small wire and instrument cluster are close connection to this problem. Unless there is fuse or relay that I missed to check. other possibilities- ECU. -Wiring harness. First- where is all the fuses? and relays to check? fusible links? second -what is the blue wire ? third-instrument cluster involved? keep in mind that everything works besides inst cluster and charging when battery have charge above 6-7v. This car have disconnected and missing ABS and Security . Run grate for about a year till this happened. Rebuilded engine....Clean well maintained.. u4davidatgmaildotcom
