    Propably the door plunger switch. Have a look at the door near the hinges & you'll see a plunger switch, if it dosent do anything when you push it in & out a few times, try taking the switch out of the door & bridges the wires. If the lights still dont come on then its more than likely a wiring fault somewhere which would need vag-com or an automotive electrician to track down where the fault lies.
