It sounds as though they are being activated b your key fob. If you do have a key fob that you can use to lock/unlock the doors, the hazard (directional lights) come on as a signal for you. Do you hear a beep at the same time as when the hazards come on? If so, then that could very well be your problem. Sometimes the "lock" button on the fob can be accidentally triggered when it is in your pocket. If you look in your vehicle manual under Remote Lock, there should be a sequence that you have to enter on the key fob that will shut off the hazard part.
Check for one of the door-open switches to be misadjusted. If the door ajar lamp is lit, the remote locking system will not work. Also check that a second key-fob is not inside the car. The smart locking system will not allow you to accidentally lock the key fob inside the car and will cycle the lock back to the unlocked position immediately if the fob is sensed by the inside-the-car sensor(s).
Its probably not a fault, the security system may be set to do this. Or if it only happens occasionally, someone else has a fob that is doing this accidentally.
Ask the dealer how you disable this behaviour. No one would want to steal a Musso, not ever. So you could leave it unlocked when it is empty.
Sounds like you either need another lock cylinder for your ignition or your central electronics module needs to be readapted in the CPU. When you insert your key back in and turn to the start position does your car start? How about when you remove the key now?
If it won't start now, or if the ignition lock cylinder doesn't move freely, then you probably need a lock cylinder.
Adapting your central electronics involves finding someone with a VAG COM cable and laptop, with the information provided in the wiki at VAG COMs website.
For instructions on replacing your ignition look in the forums on VWvortex.com
Test the battery inside key fob, should be at 3 volts, if is less than 3 volts replace the battery. If that does not work you may need to replace the key fob, on this vehicle you can program the key fob through the radio, the car manual shows you how to do this.
Before replacing the old key fob you can try to resinc the fob to the car by pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time for about 15 sec, if the door locks cycle the the fob will work again.
Yes, insure that you have power to the trunk lock inside trunk, If not could be lose/broken wire or shot fuse. I am sure the key fob does work for the doors? If not have key fob battery replaced. Also, a quick check on power to trunk lock, check to see if have remote power button inside car, if it works power is good. Defective key fob would then be indicated.
