    Rear passenger door lock deadlocked. the motor tries to unlock when remote is pressed but can't. Occurred once and then went away for a few days now a permanent problem! There doesn't seem to be any obvious way to remove the internal trim and release it. Any suggestions on how to resolve it welcome. Local dealer indicated that removal of door skin was a likely option resulting on a new door panel and respray - not an option I want to take.

1st wind the glass down and turn the key in the driver door twice in clockwise direction to lock, at the sound of the second click try try opening the door thru the window (passenger) manually. you will need to pull the knob twice before it opens. you can get all the passenger doors open this way until you decide to change central lock system. To activate the remote; insert the key into driver door while pressing the lock or unlock button on the remote for at least five-ten seconds which should get it functioning normally again. hope this helps. it worked on mine.

Audi central locking


Lock ALL DOORS, Disconnect the Battery... Wait 2-3 minutes and connect the battery and it should reset itself. Make sure all doors are LOCKED...

AND that you have a KEY to open the door in case it does not work.

Vw golf mk4 my rear passenger door willnot open with central locking key system. i can't even open it from the inside, pull the door handle and the lock pin rises but door won't open. i believ


This worked for me on 2008 Mk5 Golf, after the rear passenger door would not open fro outside or inside.

Hold the inside door latch open and keep it extended, then with the key fob open and close the door locks (still holding the inside latch open). Keep locking and unlocking the door, then it made a kluck and it released.

Central locking


turn key twice when opening, ie turn right. once drivers door will unlock, turn twice passengers doors will unlock, and locking is turn anti clock wise once will lock all doors, turn twice will set door dead locks.dead locks will stop openand lock internal button working and handle from opening door. the same actions can be applied to the remote one press drivers door, two press passenger doors, press and hold unlock button for 5 seconds and rear window will open.

Front passenger door will not open 1998 Tercel


If the passenger door has not been opened for some weeks or months, or in icy weather, it is possible that the rubber seals around the door frame will cause the door to appear 'stuck' fast - in this case, a bit of extra force from inside the car whilst pulling on the interior door handle should cause the door to open. Failing that, if the car has electrically operated central locking, when the key fob is pressed to deactivate the central locking does the door lock on the passenger side work as expected? Try unlocking the passenger door with a key, and or pull the door lock button upwards to ensure that the lock has been deactivated. Check for blown fuses.
