The power lock rocker switch and key fob do not work, the key will not turn to unlock, the manual rocker will not move to the unlock position and all unlock features both manual and automatic work just fine. This leads me to believe that this is the result of a mechanical problem of some sort as I can hear the driver actuator initiating I know this may still indicate a damaged actuator. Thanks for the feedback joeysully. Also does anyone know how to fix the door handle. I ask because there is someone locally parting one out. I think the mechanic said somthing about the memory on the doors get jammed in New Passats and Audis , causing them to either not open or not lock, and disconnecting and reconecting the battery seems to be the fix! Be careful when moving the little tabs away from the rods or the tabs will snap vBulletin Security provided by - Copyright © 2019 DragonByte Technologies Ltd.
Does anyone know where I can get a cheap actuator and is it hard to replace them? Take a fat chunk of wax, play-do, or something like it and stick it on or near the hole and shut the door. You could try disconnet the battery for an hour and let the computer reset to start again. Following Macion's instructions I was able to open my door and removed the panels. If this is the case, then the driver's door unlock relay is faulty. Door locked issue My passat rear door is stuck in locked position. The driver side door will only work by key and manual rocker switch. I need one for my back driver side door too which only acts up when it is very warm and humid outside.
If I unlock the door from the inside, get out and then close the door I still can not open it even when I can still open all the other doors. Now I never did find out why the outer door skin had be sliced off wasn't at the spot welds like you'd do for a body repair, looked like someone just took a jigsaw to it, poorly I might add. Hello, I only can lock the driver's door manually by the key, once the doors are locked manually, I press the keyless to unlock it but solely the locks sound and won't open. He said that it rarely is possible with newer vehicles, and that he would normally separate the door from frame and use a rod to press the auto unlock button which in this case is useless. I already know how to remove the door panel but seeing the actuator got me stumped since it looks like it is part of the door handle.
It happens to be the same door that doesnt unlock unless i use the key. In the event that we couldn't pop the door via the cable, I'd probably have to do some tricky stuff to try and get the door panel off enough to get at the actuator and manual pop the door that way. Also get some loc-tite that is for permanent set. Also, a passenger-side actuator makes a rrrrrrr sound when locking and unlocking. Same thing with the buttons inside of the truck they will lock and unlock all the other doors but not my driver's side. On that basis, the clutch was paid-for in 2 months or less so it got done.
There is still tension on the cable attached to the handle. I have replaced the battery in the remote but that was not the issues Do I need new Lock Actuators for the doors? There is a way to bypass it, i saw a youtube video on it but you have to remove the actuator and solder in a wire. Good luck and this will fix your issue. Let me know how it works out for you. If they don't, it's probably the actuator. Do I need to go to a dealer for repair or can I go to any car shop probably cheaper? It loses its mind when the battery is pulled.
What I would like to know is if anyone has any suggestions as to how to tackle this problem. Now the fix, and although not difficult, it will just take patients or a small set of hands. I was in a bit of a rush to do this and did not take the best pictures unfortunately, but the process seems fairly straight forward. Last week my driver door lock started acting up, it did not unlock with the other doors when put into park but worked with the rocker switch, key fob sometimes after 2 tries , the electrical power lock rocker, and the key. Ideally pull in somewhere that you can leave doors open.
If all but one door locks and unlocks then it is likely the Power Door Lock Actuator Assy for that faulty door. If i was gonna open it up to fix the actuator then I might as well fix the door handle. The problem happened a few days ago in the afternoon, not particularly cold. Any help would be appreciated. Did you get the chance to check the operation of the cable when you disconnected it from the actuator? I cringe thinking about taking it to the dealer to have them fix it since it will be insanely expensive just to have them look at it.
Hopefully, I loaded it correctly. No idea where they are in a Grand Caravan. Only option seems to be to unscrew screws in the pillar of the door inside the front door. If they do, and it's only the keyless that doesn't, check the driver's door relay. I then rolled down the window and started to pull the top of the door panel away. Check the wire harness in the door jamb, make sure it's not loose or anything like that.
