    Was checking remote start (oem) today. Is inoperable, realized alarm sets, led blinks & horn sounds. But drivers door doesn't lock. Has Kessy, removed lock cover & tried key, still won't lock. Any ideas? Had the 2013 Passat sel bout a year

    Maybe an actuator arm fell off in the door?
    Sticky micro-switch. Attempt to clean.

    We have the '13 Passat TDI SEL Premium. Remote start has never worked. Have researched, tried everything, including both fobs. I have VCDS, and was able to turn on the rain-actuated wipers (which the dealer swore could not be turned on), but there doesn't seem to be anything in VCDS to turn remote start on/off. Will accept any suggestions.

    Remains true, even today.
