i have a 51 plate 1.8t sport bora and im having trouble with the central locking the keyfob will not open all doors with 2 presses of the fob and will only lock doors with one press and 2 presses of locking should disengage the alarm according to manual the locks open and close with the key and with the button inside the door also the light on the drivers door does not light when open and the headlights on buzzer does not sound does anyone have any ideas oh and the fuse is ok any help would be appreciated
Thats as clear as mud mate. Read it 4 times and still don't understand it. Can you try again with punctuation to help us understand what you're saying?
X plate Golf, one press opens drivers door, two presses opens all doors. One press locks all doors and flashes headlights
To disable the ultra sonic sensors on the alarm (ie on leaving a window open for a dog etc) you press a button at the bottom of the B pillar on the drivers side before locking with the remote, no headlight flashes.
The dealer is able to program the settings for the locking, maybe in this case the settings need to be redone by either a maindealer or independant with vagcom software. I presume it has always been like this?
p.s when the drivers door is open with the headlights on the buzzer does not sound and the door light does not work just wondered if this had anything to do with the problem
VWs are notorious for the wiring breaking on the loom that plugs into the door edge, usually its the window that doesnt work. Open the door and pull back the rubber concertina tube and check to see if any of the wires have broken off.
I had a similar problem with my lights-on buzzer on my MK4 Golf.
The door LOCK contains electrical contacts/switchs that control the light at the bottom of the door, it's this light going on and off that activates the buzzer, therefore if the light doesn't go on and off with the door latch then the buzzer won't work. I fixed it for a while by fiddling with the lock but in the end a new locking mechanism was the only permenant fix.
