Having problems with your 2001 Volkswagen Jetta TDI ?

2001 VW Jetta 2.0

\015 You know when you open your door and the chime goes off for a sec or two visversa with your keys in the ignition. well mine doesnt turn off for about five minutes. could it be my door sensor. my keyless lock button doesnt work either. it will unlock but not lock. I pulled the fuze and it wont make the noise but my windows,locks,sunroof, lightswont work with out the fuze. And no where around the door or door jam is there a buttom that could be stuck. think you could help.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 18-11-2019

Answers :

The door latch micro switch is broken and the ecu(car) thinks the door is open. You can remove the latch with a triple square after you remove the door panel.
My wife's minivan had a similiar/related problem....especially on a\015\012bumpy gravel road....on off on off on off...AHHHHHHHHHHHH!! (this was\015\012both the beeps and the lights....as I said AHAHHHHH!)

I resolved\015\012it by figuring out which door was causing the issue....very irritating\015\012the flashing interior lights, etc.......the issue is likely that the\015\012rubber gasket is worth enough to not push the sensor in completely....
  • locate the sensor on each door....little 1" shaft like area in the door pillar area...pressed in when the door is closed
  • \015\012
  • with the engine running, open each door (one at a\015\012time) to manually press this switch in ( to identify which door is\015\012causing this irritating issue)
  • \015\012
  • once the troubled door is located...look to see where it would make contact on the door itself
  • \015\012
  • look for a rubber nickel sized plug on the door
  • \015\012
  • it is likely worn slightly, or pressed out of shape
  • \015\012
  • to resolve my wife's issue, I turned this plug a 1/4 turn or so...to the 'unworn' area
  • \015\012
  • this worked really well...although it took a few 1/4 turns to figure out the best fix
  • \015\012
  • ultimately it was an irritating fix....but the problem\015\012is/was much worse than pulling over every now and a again to 'fix'\015\012it...esp. at night (think flashing interior light, beeping..esp. when\015\012the kids had just fallen asleep!!!!)
  • \015\012
  • P.S....it was a little fiddle process, but once you do it once then, you can fiddle some more
  • \015\012
  • long-term, perhaps get another 'plug', but my solution worked really well
