i have an 03 passat, the electric keys job of opening and closing the doors only works when im 2ft away from the driver side door!!! i replaced the battery in the key and it still does the same..anyone have any ideas?
I had a similar issue with my '02. I could literally be in the car and the damn thing wouldn't work. I did the new batteies and the new remote route but the problem finally was resolved for me with a new climate control module. Mine was covered under my warantee - hope your still is too!
Another way is to stand on one foot waving the other in a clockwise verticle circle, waving your opposite arm on the air (useing it as an antenna) and to yell profanity at the car and using the free hand to push the button, and it only works on days ending in y. Everyone has ther own ways, thats mine.
