    Under warranty = free!


    Unless you've tampered with it.

    Rubbish!! Get them to fix it but first check that the unlock switch on the drivers door is working because you sometimes need to unlock that first to operate the press switch above the number plate.

    VCDS coding can change the locking protocol.

    Sorry mate - can we start again !

    The car locking protocol can be changed in many ways using VCDS. You can have one-push lock/unlock for all doors and boot or one push for all doors (not boot) etc.etc.

    What is it you want to do that it isn't doing ?
