Better late than never.

I encountered the same problem a few days ago. The problem is that your switch on the lock ceased to trigger the locking mechanism and lock the door due to deformation of metal strap on the door-frame. Just return the metal strap into its original state and the switch will trigger the locking correctly. Problem solved.

I hope this will help someone.
Have u tried making sure the metal spring at the bottom of the computer board is put back in the little plastic black square holder.

I have a 2008 VW Beetle Convertible. When the driver door is closed the window does not slide into the frame. The window stays open because it hits the convertible top. You have to unlock the door with the autolock key and the window will open slightly like usual. You re-lock the doors and the window slides up and fits snug like it is supposed to. Also, when the door is open sometimes the window edges slightly up and down a couple of times. It does not do this all the time. I was wonderin

I have 2003 VW Beetle. We accidentally locked the car, and I took out something from the boot, then left the key in the boot. Needless to say closed the boot and that was the only key to the car. So my problem, how can I open this car without the key. Electronically it is locked and I already called roadside assistance to try to open it, they can't do it. Would VW Centre have a computer programme or master override to open these doors without keys?

I have a Jaguar X300 3,2 '96 model with a jammed boot lock. On the instrumentpanel in the dashboard it indicates that the tailgate is open. I've tried to open with the button on the tailgate and on the dashboard without any luck. It seems like the problem has influenced the central locking somehow cause the doors won't lock when I set the gearhandle in "D" or using the key-fob. Locking the car from the front door works though. On top of this the key-lock on the boot is not working so I

My friend has a 1994 Nissan Infiniti that's alarm goes off when he opens the door with his key. The darn thing seems to sound randomly when he uses his key to open the locked door, and to shut the alarm off he is required to open the trunk of his car with the key and then close it. Is this normal, and if not what's going on with it? p.s. sorry for labeling the car model in the wrong manner, the drop down menu didn't have it listed on it and would not let me proceed without choosing one.

Multiple Electrical Problems Occurred At Same TIme.. Acts like key is still in the ignition when I open door to get out. Door locks will not lock doors, but they do work when key is in the ignition, or by using the remote. Odometer and Gear indicator stay bright at night and don't automatically dim. Fan blower no longer works, and neither do any of the switches, air, defrost, heat, recirc, etc.


Check under the back seat in the electrical box for a blown fuse or relay. You may just have to take this into a good shop to track it down. It sounds like you might have a blown diode in a common ground somewhere, but I cannot tell you where from ... 2000 Buick LeSabre

When I close the car door (after turning engine off) the indicators flash - without me touching the remote key. When I open the car door, then close it, the drivers side door locks then unlocks, with the red alarm LED flashing twice. Alarm doesn't sound on any instance but usually activates with indicators after locking the car.

2002 Ford Escape, drivers door will not open. Sounds like the door locks are operating properly but door handles, both inside and out don't seem to have any mechanical connection.

I have a 2003 Mercedes ML320. The other day when I was getting out of my car, I folded in the mirrors, opened my door, and it started beeping at me, like the beeping if the lights were on or something. I made sure the lights were off and the doors were closed, but it kept beeping. And now the alarm wont work, the keyless entry remote doesnt function at all. The only way to lock the doors is to use the button inside the car and then lock the door with the key on the outside for the drivers door.

My 1997 subaru legacy wagon rear gate will not open. I have automatic locking doors and it seems to be working fine for all the other doors and I can hear the click for open and close, even when I use my key but for some reason when I try to open my rear gate it will not open. It could be the handle, because it felt a little loose before the problem of not being able to open it. So any recommendation on who could fix something like this and if it is expensive to fix.

I have a 2002 C240 4 door Mercedes. My remote key will not lock the doors. The only way to lock the car is to hit the manual while leaving the drivers door open and the drivers side passenger's door open. Then I have to manually lock the drivers door from the driver's passenger door and then close the driver's passenger door. This locks all 4 doors. I can open the door just fine with the remote key.

I have a 96 Nissan Maxima. The locks on the doors keep locking and unlocking. The only way to get in the car is to put the key in the door and with the key still turned open the door.

I unplugged the battery for a minute to see if that would help, but it didnt.
