    I have had problems with my 06 Jetta since someone hit my driver's door. The cosmetics were fixed but it's been at the dealer for 3 days now. Wiring harness was replaced, but intermittently still doesn't recognize that the driver's door is open. No dinging with lights left on and no door ajar symbol shows only with driver's door open. Sometimes it does work, but mostly it doesn't. The dealership doesn't seem to know what to do now that they have replaced the wiring harness and re-programmed it.

I had what sounds like the same problem on a 2001 GTI VR6 and found that the solder joints on the driver's side door lock module were cracked. I removed the module and resoldered the joints. This corrected the remote functions, key in and lights on dinging and dome lights lighting when the door is opened. Still working on correcting the power mirrors but everything else is working again.

This URL has excellent instructions for removing the module. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1015107

2003 VW Jetta ''door open'' alarm goes off while driving


The door latch located in the door panel has a micro switch built into it assembly. It is what detects an open door. A new latch is about $150. If you could find a shop to replace it for you. You could also try buying some plastic-safe contact cleaner/lubricant and spraying the latch assembly out and opening/closing the door a few times to work it in.

Interior lights won't turn on when door opens


you have a bad drivers door latch, the micro switch inside is not telling the computer that the latch has been opened which would normally mean the door is open.
