Error: driver door contact switch

Post by RCJA » Wed Dec 26, 2018 10:09 pm

:cry:

So the other day, in the frost, we couldn't get in to the drivers door
We had to jump in otherside. But when we start the car it unlocked.

All the other doors unlocked fine...
Wasn't frozen shut... was locked....

Been fine since..

Today driving home an error came up followed by a few other faults...

What's your thoughts?

Been driving for an hour today so assume that would have charged it. Came on again today. 😭

I actually suspect you have a faulty door switch as it would probably affect all of those other ancillary systems.
Hope it’s that simple!

Thanks Me too.
It is booked in to SEAT in 3 weeks time.
It wouldn't double lock today ie mirrors wouldn't fold when trying to lock it. 😭
I'll let you know when it's been in..

So it went into and guess what they couldn't find a fault... but in the meantime I've had the AA out to it because we couldn't get it unlocked and I refuse to drive it if I couldn't get in/out the driver's door.

The garage had another look after seeing the AA report and have done a full reset and calibration of the vehicle and since then it's been fine.
The AA (VW assist a silver AA van) said they have seen it before on Aldi's a couple of years ago. Then said this was the first time he's even been out to an ateca.
