Question about 2002 Volkswagen Passat
Seriously.....phone an Auto Locksmith.
Expensive but no damage!
It must be nearly impossible to lock yoyr keys into a vw. you are very unlucky.
When you see the locksmith, get them to cut you a manual spare key......just in case.

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.
The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.
Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.
You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.
The head gasket is another story.
Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.
Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.
Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.
If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.
If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve
If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.
If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

its on the drivers side dashboard accesible with the door open only, open the door and look at the face the plastic cover pops off but gently as there are 2 plastic lugs that can break but are easy to repair.Under the steering whell area is another bank of fuses&relays.

sounds like the rear door sensor is kaput.all doors need to be shut before alarm will stabilise/you can leave the car open as if you dont have the key(with the correct code)the car is dead/immobilised.not even hot wiring will start car....
