Having problems with your 2006 Volkswagen Jetta ?

2006 Jetta - Driver door indicator light/sound not working

\015 2006 Jetta - All doors are indicated with a red warning light on dash menu except for the driver door and no warning bells. Since the car thinks the driver door is closed at all times when we leave the headlights on the warning bells for headlights do not sound for that either. We have had a dead battery twice because we are so use to it telling us they were on. Hard to re-train an old dog. :>) I thought it might be a fuse but could not find any details in manual. Thanks for taking time to read and for any responses.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 14-01-2019

Sounds like a sticky door switch.
\015\012
\015\012 Open the driver’s door. With a screwdriver or equivalent trip the latch on the door 2 clicks so it is in the locked position, just under that finger get a can of Brakecleen and hose the snot out of it. I mean really firehouse it. As fast as it evaporates I still had it running out of the door drains. Be careful not to get cleaner on the plastic door panel, trust me take extra care.
\015\012 Open the outside door handle to release the latch, then open and shut the door for a while, like a few dozen times, to work the latch. Repeat as necessary. Follow up by shooting some PB Blaster, WD-40 or whatever light lube is handy.
\015\012 If this doesn’t work, give it might take a day or so to work free. If still nothing then the micro switch might actually be broken, but this usually does the trick
