Sounds like a broken wire in the harness in the door.

SOURCE: 99 vw beetle no power to door locks, trunk switch,

the remote switch you are looking for is the fuel door switch that controls all these items trunk,unlock fuel tank door. this unit has to be replaced as a whole unit but check all your fuses first on driver side dash where door touches dash left side open door look for a triangle shape panel pop it open and check (ALL) fuses and especially #17 brown 7.5 amp fuse top right of fuse block.

Backlight in door panel won't turn off


it is very possible for the lights to drain the battery. to the second question, if you were to unplug the switches, it should turn the lights off. along with this, no you wouldn't be able to use windows. you may have to replace the switch due to water damage.

Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door


I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.

Rear driver's window won't roll down


Most probably motor. Have someone push button while u hold ear to inside door and listen for motor to try and run.

Most time shot in dark as most will not make noise but sometimes you will hear a click letting you know that power is at least getting to motor.

Gas door won't open


FIRST: try using the gas release lever from inside the car with the driver side door closed. My 2006 Jetta gas release lever would only work if the driver door were shut and I pulled the release from the inside car interior. Turns out it was a severed door wire (NOT THE RELEASE CABLE). Thus when the door was open, it stretched the damaged wire and so none of the door controls worked unless the door was closed. ie windows, trunk release, and gas release. It was a $600 repair at the dealership, parts and labor! :(

THE BUTTON IN THE CONSOLE TO OPEN THE GAS CAP AND THE TRUNK WONT WORK AND I CANT PUT GAS INTO THE CAR!!!! IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO OPEN THE GAS COVER AND THE TRUNK???


I can't promise it, but in my 99 A4 there is a release cable in the trunk. I have to pull the trunk carpeting away on the side where the gas filler door is, and there's a red cable there that can be used as a manual release. I imagine your TT has one as well - look in the hatch on the side with the gas door, and pull the lining back - you'll probably have a release cable as well.

Same problem with 99


Try running a hose on the driver's door window to see if the drain hoeles in the driver's door are plugged. Also check the drain holes in the rear window and trunk lid drains. If one of the drain holes is plugged the water will seek the next easiest way to drain (which might be to the iside of your VW Beetle.
