Rear drivers door wont lock with remote. Started today and after searching it found it to be common problem. called dealer and part is $185.
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.

Rear driver's side door lock has stopped working. Therefore, cannot lock the car fully and receive the "beep" with remote. If you open the rear door, the alarm goes off. All other locks work, remote is working properly. If this is a known issue, then why isn't there a recall?

One day my clicker wouldn't work. Then I couldn't lock the other doors or roll the windows up or down from drivers side panel. I took the panel off to fix it and found that the door cut the wires in the rubber boot leading from door to car. Connected them back up and everything including clicker and alarm works. But you'll need to add wire because in at least 2005 model vw cut cost by making the wires shorter which caused the problems
