Vw passat 2002 one back door wont lock, one wont open, on central locking


Most likely a defective central locking solenoid inside the door. Before stripping down door, look at the rubber trunking between the pillar and the door frame, that carries the wiring into the door. Peel back the rubber and look for broken wires or corrosion on plug.

DRIVERS DOOR WILL NOT OPEN, WHEN OPENED FROM INSIDE WILL NOT CATC


I have this on a Passat 1998 model and it's frustrating, im at the point where all 4 doors wont unlock and the 2 front ones work with the key but need to be closed with the key again.The boot opens and closes with the remote.I removed and cleaned all four door barrels when they opened intermitently and under the passenger side footwell is the ecu for the windows&alarm which i removed and cleaned as well as soldered 2 dry joints.If i activate the fob i hear the relay in the ecu click and double click to lock and the boot lock works which indicates the electrics are ok.Doing a google there are 1000sssds of queries with passat/vw door lock problems and the main cause is dry solder joints in the door lock mechanisms in the door.I found out from the main dealer when replacing my bootlock(the old one was damaged in a theft attempt) that a new modified part was available and the same for door locks????leading me to believe this is a widespread problem.The only thing is to remove the door parts and inspect the catch and circut board for dry joints.This link may help you. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1542461 copy and paste this into your browser or google the website if you dont know how.

99 vw passat doors will not open with remote & only 1 door will unlock sometime. rear door locks don't work most of the time.


I had the same problem on my 1998 passat and the first thing i done is take off the drivers side controls for electric windows etc(first step to door card removal) and upon disconnecting the multisocket and putting it back on just to try before going ahead, everything worked again.My problem was N/S rear and O/S/F doors wont open/unlock and drivers front works with key but does not work central locking or window etc.Just a wipe with WD40 on a artist paintbrush to lube it and it was fine but i could see fine damp in the door(i live in Birmingham, U.K and it was snowing for a one month period) which i suspect was from the un-usual cold weather we had.I had lived in East Sussex prior so from warm to freezing was most likely the cause as the door lock froze and one door even flew open as the catch froze and the locked door appeared closed but just stuck closed, wd40 solved that also.Hope this helps.

The rear right hand side door will not unlock and cannot be opened from the inside or outside all other doord are operating properly. the car is a vw passat 02


My 1998 passat done the left rear and drivers side then all.Take out the drivers side lock barrel, open door and undo 1 torx screw until it stops(it cant be removed fully) and then pull the handle lightly half way and wiggle the barrel out.Spray wd40 onto the inner bits and try get it into the plastic slot area(operates the sensors that cause this problem) . Put back and tighten up and then do this to all doors.Lubricate all door lock catches by spraying wd40 into every hole or orfice you see and that should help.

Voltswagon Bora Central locking fault


i had the same problem and i fixed it yesterday. you will have to strip the door down and remove the central locking unit. expect about a 3-4 hour job (at least).
check this site out taligentx.com: Passat - Door Lock Mechanism Repair. its **** hot.
mine had rotted inside, i tried to resolder it but it was to corroded i ended up soldering wires to the circuit board and splicing the into the loom on the door.(bit of a botch but it works great)
you can get a second hand unit if you cant fix it for about £50/£60 or pay a garage about £300 to do it.
believe me it was worth about 4hrs and gettin peed off to save the money.
hope this helps.

Vw passat central locking 1998


hi make sure your connections are connected properly firstly as proberly whats happened is when you have been connecting the wires you shorted the live feed and not noticed as if you were to diconnect the wires of that door soliniod that is the only door that wouldn,t work so if they are all not working it must be something that controls the whole system rather than the one part , so look at the fuses firstly as if they worked before you startedthe job this is more likley to be the case yates210456
