    Question Driver's Door Does Not Unlock With Fob or Button.

    Calling all gurus;

    2006 Passat, the drivers door does not unlock with the key fob nor the door button, but all the other doors do. I can open the door from the inside using the handle. The light indicates the door is Locked.

    It seems like the 'unlock' signal is not getting to the drivers door. Is this a hard fix, or a simple weekend project fix?

    Thanks for any help!

    PS. I did a search and came up with this, though its not very helpful:

    Update:
    This morning, I clicked the remote as usual, and the door opened without a hitch.

    I hate intermittent gremlins.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Probably the same problem i had. Due to the recent years industry replacement of leaded solder by unleaded, the door locking control terminals tend to brake. Due to vibration, when the contacts touch, they work and the door opens/closes normally. When they don't touch, you're screwed.
    Solution is either:
    a) dismantle door, open up door locking motor and replace solder
    b) get a cheap second hand working AND compatible lock off ebay and replace yours
    c) go to a dealer and get robbed getting a new one

    You can see some pics of this here taligentx.com: Passat - Door Lock Mechanism Repair even if it's for a B5.

    Hope it helps
