Cannot get alarm or passenger side door to lock even with the key

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Wanted to check and see if anyone else has had this issue. When I lock the car with the key by placing it in the drivers door and turning it to the right the car seems like its about to lock but then beeps twice and the intrior light comes on for a short period of time. I then check the door and the drivers side door is locked however the passenger side is not. The key fob is not working either and hasn't since i've owned the car (approx. 1 month) which seems like a common issue from the posts i've read. It will not lock/open or pop the trunk. Possibly needs reprogramming from what i've read but it seems like I should still be able to manually lock the car. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, i'm going to give the three times to the right thing a try and see where that gets me. From what i've been reading on here it does sound like the door lock micro switch. Is there a way to test this part independently with an ohms meter or something? I'd like to avoid going to the stealership if at all possible. Thanks for the help!

Thanks Loren, i'll take a look around, see if I can find as shop in the area that has the diagnostic tool. I tried the three times to the right thing and no luck the car just sounds it's horn twice and the passenger side never locks. I might try a post on here and see if anyone knows of an independent shop that would have this tool in the Boston area. Aside from the authorized Porsche dealership of course.
