    Hi guys, does anyone know where the sensors for the doors are located?

    For some reason the interior lights and door lights dont come on when the door is opened. The computer is not showing an open door either.

    Iv looked and looked but be buggered if i can find anything...

    The door open sensors are part of the main door lock for each door.

    Oh no, I hope this isn't a repeat of the old Golf IV design flaw with gunked up micro switches in the door lock modules.
