Hi all,

For the past few weeks, I've been having to open my drivers door mechanically with the key, as the key won't remotely unlock any more. I've changed battery in key but makes no difference.

Curiously...if I don't turn the ignition on within around 15 seconds, or if someone else opens the passenger door once I've unlocked the rest of the doors with the central locking button inside the driver's door...the alarm will go off. Also noticed the red LED light by the driver's window is still flashing after the car has been unlocked with the key mechanically (as if the alarm is still on).

Just wondering if anyone has an idea what is at the root of this problem. Thanks

Most of the time this is due to the microswitch in one or more of the door latches failing. If you know anyone with a vagcom, you can use it to determine which door is not unlocking. Also pull the boot in the door hinges that covers wiring loom to check for broken wires.
