Check the position of the switch on the light first. Check for earth points at the door switches or check the light control module . I have to suggest to check the blub as well

SOURCE: Interior lights won't turn on when door opens

Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

SOURCE: door in back cant open from outside and inside

I'm sure VW had a recall to replace door lock mechanisms around that age, check with your dealer. If the door and window on the same door are not working it could be lack of power to that door, check the wiring harness connection is still plugged in and ok on the b pillar (b pillar is the vertical panel between front and rear door), remove rubber gaitor bellows and check connections.

    you can take a screw driver and pry it off. Be careful if you have power windows, if it falls right off then it could pull the wires loose. The panels have clips that clip to the door. Therefore, the only way to get the panel off is to pry it off.

    My interior lights wont work in my vw passat 2.0 tdi sport 2007


    • There is a fuse box on the drivers side either under the dash or on the aids of the dash. One of them fuses could be blown.


    • The other thing that could be going wrong is the harness on the driver side door. If you open the drivers door you will see a harness stretching from the frame to the door. You can get into that harness and look for broke, bulged or rusted wires and splice in new ones. This is common with aged vehicles because of the amount that door is used.

    Pop out the switch on the door that has the issue, more than likely switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced. you will need to check it with a meter to see if power is getting to the switch and also to check when switch is activated if power goes through switch

    I just bought a 2005 passat wagon. It is great


    you must remove the inner lower panel on the hatch and lubricate the lock mechanism and solenoid.

    Watch out for the hidden screws in the lift handle cutouts.

    Get 6 new panel clips from a VW dealer before you start.
