  1. I would think it's the same problem as I had. The latch position microswitch on the drivers door lock. You can get a complete new lock off fleabay for £19.98 - saves a load of hassle trying to change just the microswitch.
  2. Sure did fix it. Just need to find out if mine has remote central locking......not sure how you know if it's fitted? Mine only came with one standard key
  3. The 2003 Lupo GTI I recently bought only came with one standard key, not one with remote unlocking buttons. The key is not a genuine VW item, it's a pattern part (although it does have a transponder chip). So the question is, did all GTIs come with remote central locking?
  4. I think you will find it's the "door latch open" microswitch. I have just received my new lock module, so will fit it later and see what happens.
  5. Passengers sun visor please?
  6. Passengers sun visor Please?
  7. As title, wanted - Lupo GTI passengers side sun visor (black). Prefer one with the mirror intact!
  8. Could be an interesting one! Good luck.
  9. Yup, I have ordeted a complete lock Module off fleabay. Shall see what happens after that!
  10. Had the issue with the interior light not coming on when you unlock the car and the alarm going off if you don't put the key in the ignition quick enough. So got a new microswitch for the "door latch open" indication on the lock module and fitted it. Interior light now works fine when you open the door. But.....when I try and lock the door with the key nothing happens! You can lock it from the lock/unlock rocker switch on the drivers door and then unlock it from the outside, but not lock it from outside......very strange (I can hear the microswitch operating though). Just for good measure the alarm goes off for no apparent reason. I shall order a complete new door lock module and fit that. Will then see if I have buggered up something else inside the old one! Anybody near Ipswich got Vagcom? (apart from the dealers). Cheers.
