hey

so selling my new beetle but would like to get door locks working
here it what it does.

1) if i press door lock button drivers door and passengers door
-lock = relay click
-unlock = nothing

2) if i press using FOB before today lol
-lock = blinkers flashed
-unlock = blinkers flashed

door locks would never move
3)now if i press fob
-nothing happens lol
-changed battery and still nothing



things i have done.
-check lock microswitches and traces/joints for cracks and bad solder joints (drivers was repaired and tested)
-checked door wiring harness for wire breaks - none found

Well, the most common failure; is the door lock module, bad switch, door wiring harness or worst case scenario, the comfort control module. Do you have a VW compatible scan tool; electrical problems will sometimes throw a code.

yeah have checked door door lock modules, wiring, and CCM(although i dont have another CCM to confirm no issues with it)

1J0 959 799 AJ is module part number

also i have just noticed that if i hold the door key to unlock position the windows roll down. then if i hold to lock they close

neat lol my golf is manual windows so never knew lol

yes there are lots on ebay but roman numeral has to match as well as there was 4 different models of 1J0 959 799 AJ for different options

i have "I" 1J0 959 799 AJ
now idea i have that might be causing issue is i have power folding mirrors on this car but one mirror is larger then other. maybe normal mirror was put in and causing issue. probably not but who knows lol

so when i hook up power to the door interior light the door locks work on that side(passenger side i have tried so far)

work with fob and door button(not drivers side)

although im wondering where it ussually gets power from and how much.
main power to doors is working

so when i run power to both interior lights(red wire blue strip) which joins the red wire/yellow strip in the door wiring harness

both doors work and lock and unlock as they should
the wire goes under carpet and under drivers seat.

guessing it goes to passenger side which i will check now

well found problem...
took radio out and seats and lifted carpet on side so i can pull wiring up abit and after untapping wiring i followed the red wire with yellow strip and it looped back up the wiring harness and was joined with 2 other red with yellow strip wires.

took tape off the connector and wires were so corroded they were dust on the end. so re cut them and soldered them. taped it back up and now doors work and mirrors work now

was worth it, no door locks suck when alarm always sets and doors stayed unlocked.


thanks for all the help.
