    Driver's door won't lock/unlock with key fob

    Hi,

    Not sure which thread to post this in so apologies. I have a 2016 Golf hatch mk7. Unfortunately, the car battery died a couple of days ago and had to be replaced, which was fine. Since this has happened, for some reason, whenever I go to unlock/lock the car with the key fob all the doors unlock/lock apart from the driver's door. I can lock/unlock all the doors if I insert the key into the emergency key slot and the car recognises when it's open or closed. I've tried re-synchronising the key to the car and resetting the settings on the computer but to no avail. It's not keyless entry. Can anyone help?

    Interesting, the simplistic approach is a fault code read of the convenience system.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0, only what I've added from this post, minus engine size/type.

    As suggested: You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

    I've booked it in for a diagnostics check. Will see what it says and let people know what it was.
