#48 of 314 2001 VW Jetta, Annoying door
Jan 28, 2008 (6:32 pm)
I have a 2001 VW Jetta Wolfsburg edition and as of two days ago the remote lock doesn't work (the unlock does) and the car constantly thinks the driver side door is open. I wouldn't be to concerned about the door if it wasn't for the extensive beeping. Also my check engine light keeps coming on...I've taken it to a mechanic and afterwords its off but it repetedly comes on in the coming says. Any help would be great in particular the door problem.

#52 of 314 Alarm or Battery Problem????
Mar 22, 2008 (6:23 pm)
I own a 1999 Jetta. Last week I dropped my remote key in the snow and it stopped working. So from there until today I was just usung the key manually. During that time the alarm would not come on. But today when i manually locked the door the alarm was armed. When i returned to my car i was able to get in using the key manually but the alarm light was still blinking. I tried to start the car then the alarm went off. I opened the hood the alarm went off. I opened up the key remote and tried to buy a new battery at a few auto stores and none sold the CR1620 battery needed. So i had to get me car towed home. But before i left that spot I was able to turn the key in the ignition to the start postion but it would not start . The man tried to jump the battery but the battery would not take charge, although all the internal and external lights works well.
Can anyone tell me what I can do?
I didn't know having a foriegn car would be this difficult...LOL
oh yeah .. my car started acting out in the winter (other problems not the above issue)
has anyone heard of the california cars? because i had no problems until the winter season hit

I recently bought a 2000 Jetta gl, it didnt have a factory cd/radio deck inside, previous owner had a JVC cd deck. I was changing the deck and installing a new cd deck(sony) I notice i needed a new adapter for the deck. So no deck in the car, i drove to advance auto parts to see if they had one, car started up and went, when i reached the store and ready to come back to the car. the alarm wouldn't disarm to open the doors up, i tried useing the key manuely to open it, it didn't work either. I was wondering, if the anti-theft system has somthing to do with it? does anyone have some advise, how i can open my doors up?? I also replace the battery in the remoter, it still doesn't work

Do you have a specific fix for the issues that you have had? I have a 2003 Jetta, the radio has been replaced twice and is starting to go again.
My engine light came on last year and I had to replace the serpentine belt and the thermostat. I was out of warranty by this time and spent ~$400. Two weeks ago my air went out and had to replace the fuse assembly for another $400. Now it is back in the shop again because the engine light came on. I am afraid now that it's paid off that the car will start nickel and diming me if I don't get VW to admit to an electrical problem!
