Passat (B7) :: Remote Start Shuts Off When Unlock The Door

Just passed 700 miles on my new baby, loving every minute of it. What I don't quite understand is why the remote start shuts off when you unlock the door. That just seems so counterintuitive. I'm sure there's a legitimate safety reason why, but it seems to add more wear to the motor by turning it off and on so many more times since one has to start it again once getting inside.

Any way to hack the system in such a way that once remote started the car doesn't shut off when you get in?

Logistically it might be an issue since I'm sure stepping on the brake would shut the car off when running on remote start (since no actual key gets inserted into a keyhole)...but then again the key being in proximity could permit driving the vehicle... I dunno.

Passat (B5) :: How To Take Door Panel Off To Fix Window That Won't Go Up

My driver's side window on my 2001.5 GLS V6 recently seems like it slipped off the track and won't go back up. When I push the window button, it's making a grinding noise. It sounds like the motor still works but either something is stuck in there or the window is off the track. My issue is how do I take the door panel apart so I can look at what is going on? Also, I'm fairly good at mechanical stuff but is this something I should leave to VW to fix?

Passat (B7) :: How To Remove Driver Side Door Panel

Here's a video of how to remove the interior drivers' side door panel.

You'll need a t30 torx driver, trim/pry tools and a pair of needle nose pliers. It's really easy and the parts are pretty durable.

As I pull off the panel you can see that something falls out of the bottom. It's one of the t30 torx screws that gets rotated 90 degrees. It simply pops back into the hole.

I had to wrap it up quickly at the end...a bee flew in the shot and I'm allergic. I think you can see the panic in me even though I'm not actually facing the camera.

How to remove the rear door panels I made a thread for that awhile ago. Here's the link to that one: [URL] .....

Passat (B5) :: 2002 - Key Fob Will Unlock Driver Door Only

I have a 2002 passat. Recently, the door locks have been doing strange things. The key fob will unlock the drivers door only. Yesterday, when I hit the unlock button, the door lock button went up but the door remained locked. Even using the key itself, the door would not open. I had to climb in through the read hatch (it was a wagon or I'd still be locked out). Where the problem lies? The dealer suspects some component in the drivers door is malfunctioning. How to trouble shoot this without taking the door apart? If not, how do I take the door apart?

Ford - Explorer :: 2001 - Driver Side Door Will Not Unlock

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2 Door. Recently, I have been having trouble with my driver side door lock. Sometimes, but not always, the driver side door will not unlock with the keyfob, the actual key, door panel keyless entry, or unlock button inside the car. I hear the mechanisms working to unlock the door, but then it immediately locks itself back. The passenger side door unlocks fine with the keyfob. My solution has been to unlock the passenger side door and climb over and manually pull the driver side door handle which finally releases the lock and opens the door. What I can do to fix the problem?
