Brilliant thanks I had exactly the same problem, I did as it said above disconnect the battery for 60 seconds and then reconnected it .Hey guys,
Just had the same problem with the central locking not opening the passenger door or the boot with the fob key, only the driver door would open. The only reason I can think of that could of caused this was that my battery went dead after my mate was spraying the front bumper & bonnet. I recharged the battery but still no difference. After searching the net and to realise alot of guys had the same problem, one answer to fix it kept arising 'Bring back to dealer'.
I decided to go back down and disconnect the battery and reconnect it 60sec later and the central locking was perfect.
Hope this helps.
Have you had any luck with your problem mentioned above. I have a 2007 golf and have started having the same problems. The central locking works, but opens all doors except the drivers door. I have messed about with the MFD menu to no avail. Did you disconnect your battery? Has it sorted the problem if you did?Well all the above is interesting & informative. My central locking is failing to open just my driver door. Therefore, I'm going to disconnect the battery & see if it solves my problem too... Crossed fingers, I'll let you know!

Have you found an answer to your problem? I am having a problem when I lock my car remotely. Whenever locking , rather than the lights flashing on and off, they sometimes stay on. The only way to reset is either hit the locking remote again or lock the car using the key in the driver's, door. Does anyone have a solution?Hello,
I am new and joined because I have a weird problem that even my almost nerdy vw mechanic can't figure out. So almost every 12 hours my battery would be dead (I just replaced the battery about 4 weeks ago). I took it to the mechanic and he diagnosed it as a possible "central locking system malfunction". He did not find a draw when he tested the battery, but auto zone found almost 1 amp draw when the car was off. The weirdest part is that if I don't lock my doors (as suggested by the mechanic) the car is okay in the morning, so far. Any ideas?
