    I had the same problem with my 09 Jetta this morning. When I used the remort to lock the doors, it did not beep the horn. When I opened the driver's side rear door, the car alarm went off. I tried opening and closing the door several times to see if it was not shutting fully, but the problem persisted. I then cleaned off the metal door catch and tried it again, this time all doors locked and the horn beeped. I don't know if this was the problem, or if it was just a coincidence. Maybe there is a sensor in the latch that wasn't working because if dirt.

    Rear door drivers-side. When using Keyless entry doors won't lock. The door above is culprit. All others lock. A short alarm sounds when all doors are locked. Presently no alarm sounds. Any suggestions for a fix. By the way I did use my second clicker which is brand new. Therefore battery is new.

    Driver's side door lock inside the car suddenly stopped working. If you press the button, nothing happens. I also found out that when I use the clicker to lock the car, it wasn't actually locked. The door opened and set off the alarm. Looks like I will have to stick to using the key until I can take it in for repairs (quoted at $300).

    Who knows how long the problem has existed, a friend checked the back passenger side door and it opened! The button on the door doesn't lock it either.

    Rear Door Locking Problems. No Solution yet. Remote will not lock the right rear passenger door. Also, the child lock cannot be disengaged on the left side passenger door causing you to reach inside to pull the door handle.
