I just wanted to share the fact that the button that locks my car that is on the exterior door handle (Keyless Entry option - is this confusing to anyone else? ) has been fixed once again.
I first mentioned this issue in this thread http://forums.vwvortex.com/zer...69301 near the bottom assuming there aren't any more posts in it. In the previous attempt they replace the seat control module and it resolved the issue. but after a while, it was not working again.
The most recent effort, at a different dealer, was to replace the door handle and button. This seems to have worked. Of course I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall as in stop working again. I had already told the service writter that he didn't need to be concerned if he had to call and tell me the new handle didn't fix the problem. I really didn't think it would work. But so far so good.
The new handle had to be painted and I don't thin the paint matches perfectly. However, sicne the handle does not match flush with existing body pannels (basically it meets at near 90 degrees with the door panel) I don't see this as an issue. When I compare front (the one replaced on passenger side) with rear, the paints look slightly different. But there is no way anyone else would notice ... except maybe you all reading here.
Anyway, I'll keep you all posted as it sounds like others have experienced this issue as well.
