Can anyone help me please

I went to lock the car after getting the family out and noticed the indicators weren't flashing so I unlocked again by pressing the remote twice. The 2 rear doors work fine but my drivers door wont lock or unlock unless I put the key in the lock. I also noticed the front passengers side door wont unlock or lock and as there is no key hole its conctanly locked, even with the lock/unlock buttons inside the car only the rear two locks work.


right i had it diagnosed and came back with this



Control unit diagnosis VW Pass. door cont. unit 3.0 Error memory

03A1 Passanger side central locking unit. Signal improbable

No. of Errors 1



Control unit diagnosis VW DRiv. door cont. unit 3.0 Error memory

03A0 Driver side central locking unit. signal improbable

No. of Errors 1



.

also only just noticed my heated wing mirrors aren't working/moving either?

when you had your car diagnosed why didnt they tell you what was wrong with the car instead of error codes that is no good to you.

Used to get this with the Vectras driver door and being 17 stone didnt help climbing across the seats.

I used to give the door a good few bangs with the flat of my hand near to the locking mech while operating the remote and it used to free it.

Check the harness thats visable when you open the door, had a simlar thing on a pug a while back, the joints can get damaged and break with the door opening and closing ;)
