    Default Amarok door not locking

    Any one had issues with one of their doors not locking?

    My left front door battles to lock/lock occasionally. Only recently discovered that I was leaving my bakkie open. I sounds like it is locking but only locks three of the 4 doors, front left not locking.

    Sometimes unlocking and opening and closing the left front door two or three times does the trick, other times I try unlocking locking, switching the car off and on again etc.

    Taking it in tomorrow, but don't want them to spend the whole day working on it.

    How do you know if the alarm activated? Mine is set to beep if I lock, and it does so in this case.

    I guess it is still waiting for the door to close, therefore opening the door does not activate the alarm

    Jy hoor 'n geluid van die deure wat sluit (Klik). As die alarm aangaan hoor jy biep. So as al jou deure nie sluit nie hoor jy net klik en nie biep nie.

    Ek hoor die 'click' en die 'beep'. Partykeer klink die 'click' soos n dubbel 'click' en dan weet ek verseker hy het nie gesluit nie.

    I just replaced my rear right door lock
    Same symptoms as you have. I just replaced as I don't want to have issues with locking my car.

    Also just replaced the locking mechanism in my rear right door.

    Door wouldn't lock but alarm did go on after about 30 seconds. Replacement was done under warranty

    I noticed that the Alarm atleast activates, opening the door after a while does cause the Alarm to siren.

    I have to come back again, they have ordered the parts.

    Same issue here with left front door. Lock replaced under warranty a few months ago. This seems to be a common issue now. I'm wondering if the other three will go when I'm out of warranty

    Seems to be a common problem with VW's. Swambo's Polo did the exact same think on the front left door.

    Some of you guys speak of your alarms beeping. Mine doesn't beep. Is this a setting or just available on some models? I have a 2012 TDi.

    Not all the Amaroks have the same software, but inorder to enable this you have to ask your dealer to activate or use VCDS.

    Looks like the lock issue has come to haunt me too. I took the lock out and stripped it as far as possible. All the mechanisms still look fine, but the section that houses all the micro switches is a sealed unit. I re-lubed everything and reinstalled, but the problem persists. Will try again this weekend, and if I dont come right, will need to buy a new one from VW.

    I had 2 of my locks replaced under warranty, now my drivers lock starting to act up as well. Need to claim this before warranty expires this year.
