THAT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING WITH THE LOCKS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO WORK WITH THE SHIFTER WHEN PUT IN GEAR. OURS DID THE SAME THING, BUT OUR WARRANTY PAID TO FIX IT, ALTHOUGH IT STILL ISN'T WORKING100%. IT COULD ALSO BE AS SIMPLE AS THE BATTERY IN YOUR KEYLESS ENTRY BEING LOW. ALTHOUGH THAT SHOULDN'T STOP YOU FROM MANUALLY OPENING IT. THAT'S WHAT MAKES ME THINK IT IS THE LOCK MECAHNISM ITSELF. I'M SURE YOU KNOW THAT IT HAS ON/OFF BUTTON FOR THE SLIDER AND IF IT IS OFF IT WON'T WORK, ALSO VAN HAS TO HAVE TO BE IN PARK OR IT WON'T WORK EITHER. TO USE MINE MANUALLY I HAD TO DRAG, YANK AND PULL(HAHA) TO GET IT OPEN. ANY SIGNS OF RUST ON YOURS YET? WE STARTED NOTICING BAD RUST LAST YEAR WHEN THE CAR HAD @50,000 MILES ON IT. ITS DISAPPOINTING TO SEE ALL THESE LITTLE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS WITH THIS VAN. GOOD LUCK!

How to fix the door locks


Inspect first the wiring of the power locks of your car. There may be loose connections or wiring that may have exposed copper or bad terminals that any movement may cause the locks to malfunction. You may have to open the door panels to gain access. Although unlikely, you may have issues with all of the actual actuators that lock the door.

Driver side keyless entry does not work. Other


does the door unlock with a key? if not, then you may have a disconnected linkage. You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Way cheaper to do it yourself than have the dealer do it... cost me $30-50 to do it myself and the dealer was gonna charge me $300

Rear trunk lid wont close


There's an electronic actuator inside the trunk door. The actuator opens the trunk lid when you press either the remote keyless entry or the inside trunk release. If the electronic actuator fails it usually fails in the trunk open mode which will not allow you to close the trunk lid. You can either remove the actuator and take the car to the VW dealer, or buy a new actuator and replace it yourself. It's a tough fix, but not impossible for the mechanically inclined.

Driver side power lock will lock but not unlock


The only way to really see the problem is by removing the door trim panel. This will allow you to see if is the actuator is moving, and how far, along with noting any interference of lock linkage movement. Hope this helps.

it sounds like the lock actuator inside the door has frozen. if that is the case, you will have to remove the inner door panel partially or fully to gain access to the actuator.if you press down on the door lock knob, does it move down.if not I would definitely suspect a failed actuator.

Cannot unlock rear hatch door


You will need to replace the latching mechanism. There is a small access door near bottom of the panel that you can manually actuate the mechanism, but if it was like my experience, the mechanism was frozen and you will have to slide a coat hanger down into the panel from the top and pull the cables
