    I have the exact same problem, I tried replacing the batteries, doing some steps for re-programming the remote. But still the small light on the driver's lock does not work. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Can you operate the central locking once inside the car? Does your interior light come on when you open the drivers side door? If those are both the case, then you may have a bad door microswitch. If your car can't detect your drivers side door being closed, the central locking will not operate from the keyfob. If the microswitch is bad, you may need to take it to a garage to have it serviced as the procedure is complicated. See this website for details:

My Mitsubishi colt CZ1 (07 plate) has problem with cental locking. I can manually central lock but with the remote it locks/unlocks all the doors except the driver's door. Please help. Thanks


Central locking works by way of little electric motors that engages and disengages the door lock. The drivers door has an additional set of contacts in the actuator which signal the controller when it changes position. The controller activates the servo motors when a signal is received from the receiver or from the drivers door servo motor. So in your case I suspect the motor part of the drivers door actuator is done for.
To replace you will have to remove the inner driver's door panel to get at the actuator. The actuator itself cannot be repaired and needs to be replaced as a unit.

I have a 2004 mk5 Golf FSI. The drivers door central locking has stopped working. The rest of the doors lock with the central locking key. Can anyone offer any help with this?


a few ideas either the wires between the door and the frame (in the rubber boot) have become worn causing a break in the line or the switch is bad the batteries need replacing in the remote or the linkage has come undone possibly the fuse is blown these are a few areas in which to address the issue with 1st

Central locking on golf mk5


Any chance the batteries are dead in both of them? There's a little light on your key fob. Try locking/unlocking and watch the light (it's red) if it's dim or not lighting up then your battery (inside your key fob) is dead. They take CR2032 watch batteries.

Red light on will not work on the front driver side


do the doors lock and unlock correctly? if yes could be just a bad led bulb. if alarm doesn't work now have the aftermarket radio removed and disconnected. the computer on car monitors the radio so when an aftermarket unit is installed it will mess with the stock computer. VW makes us disconnect aftermarket radios before we are allowed to hook up diagnostic computer because of the problems that occur
