MK 5 passenger door wont unlock

2 posts in this topic

Hi ,

My passenger door does not unlock at all.When I press the button it does two clicks my door gives one loder click. I have been to the dealer and he says it could be the door lock and I am looking at £200. My car is a 05 GTI DSG with 34000 miles on it , I have owned it from new.

Any ideas/ suggestions welcome.

Hi

I had a similar problem with my 54 Golf GTI, when it had about 30k on the clock. I had about three or four bouts where the passenger would not unlock. Each bout would last a few weeks.

I knew whether the door was going to unlock or not by the sound the locking system made when I pressed the keyfob. I had to drive everyone around in the back seats only.

Phoned a couple of VW dealers and described the problem - they wanted to charge for a diagnosis, and one of them suggested that if it was an ECU problem it would be quite costly to put right.

That was about a year ago - thankfully the problem sorted itself out (touch wood!), and has been fine ever since. I didnt get as far as taking it in for the diagnosis.

Im hoping its sorted as it was really inconvenient!

Is yours still occurring?
