I have a 2003 Passat GLS. It came with a basic alarm which I might add has an absolutely abysmal range with the remote (3 feet). I've been thinking about getting a Viper alarm/remote start installed sometime soon. But I'm having a problem with the current system which I'll need to be using for a few more months.

Normally pressing lock on the remote locks all the doors and the lights flash and the horn sounds. I've noticed recently (and have probably left the car unintentionally unlocked with my nice radio and ipod) that I press lock and all the locks go down except for the passenger rear door and accompanied by this is a lack of the horn beeping. If I then open the offending door and slam it shut (not pushing lock down) and then attempt to lock it, it will work. I'm not sure what part would be causing this. As the door does unlock and lock once shut again. I'm thinking a sensor that detects if the door is shut is broken or defective. Anybody have any ideas?
