      Hey guys I'm new to the VW I come over from a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. I own a 2005 Gli (Blue lagoon) Unitronic Stage 1 chipped. Lately i've been having this issue with when it come's time to lock the door's with the remote all doors lock except for driver side. The problem seem to have fixed itself and went away for a few days but now it's back anybody got any suggestion's what might be causing this problem. I was thinking the battery on the car might be failing. Thanks for all the tips
