    Drivers door doesnt unlock

    When i press the unlock button on my key (either once for the drivers door only or twice for all doors) my drivers door remains locked and i have to insert the key to unlock it. Can anyone help please?

    Start with a code read of the convenience system but it is likely the door lock unit is faulty. Cars built (not registered) upto 06-12-09 used a unit based on the Passat 3B part which was notoriously unreliable and this was upgraded to a Roomster and Fabia specific part which can be retro fitted to the earlier models, I get the part number as being 5J2 837 016 but check this with your supplying dealer. Thankfully, due to the Roomsters door design, this is not the nightmare of a job it used to be drilling out rivets but you are likely to damage the protective foil 5J0 868 396 so make sure you have one available.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I don't know if the Roomster has similar parts, but I had that problem on my 2012 Yeti when the wires between the A pillar and drivers door started to break, it might be worth pulling the rubber boot to one side to check (nil cost).
