I own a 2015 Up! (Take) whose Central Locking System appears to have developed a fault. I can no longer unlock the passenger door by pressing the unlock button on the driver's door ; I have to do it manually. I first noticed this a day or so after I had reconnected the battery. (The car was parked up for seven weeks with the battery disconnected.) This may be coincidence or connected to the fault in some way. Thanks in advance to anyone who has any ideas on this and takes the trouble to reply.

Have you tried re-registering key? There is a simple procedure in the manual....

And I assume the key-fob battery is OK?

Thanks freemansteve. The key-fob battery is fine. Is this what you had in mind :

  1. Press and hold either the lock or unlock button for one second. The vehicle should remain locked.
  2. Using the master key, unlock and relock your Volkswagen.
  3. Your key fob should reset itself.

Maybe! I can't remember! I'll try to check my manual when I next go out to the car ..

I misread it and thought he meant "for the driver's door"!

In which case, maybe the button has failed, or...

Maybe try a system reset by making sure the battery is fully charged first and then doing a battery disconnect/reconnect.

Starting point will be to get the door card off - this is a good summary of that bit


Then you'll need to access the door lock module. That's usually a right pain as they're hidden away to keep them secure. Unless it's a cable issue it's probably best to leave the job to a garage or bodyshop

If you can, scan the car for error codes as it might be that the door lock module has gone bad. It will either be an electronic issue or a physical issue

There are anumber of threads here on door trim removal. That video does not show the lower retaining clip being rotated through 90 degrees. if you fail to do that, the panel will break.

My tip is to get the part numbers of any plastic clips for the door cards and buy a few, and get a proper removal tool.
At this cold time of year, at least one clip will break!
