Locking issues on 1998 GTV
I have recently purchased a 2.0 GTV and have come across some issues with the central locking system and was wondering if anyone out there has any advice that could help.
Firstly I got four keys with the car - 3 standard red keys and a darker key that looks like it could be some sort of master key. I did not get any keys with remote locking plips - is this standard on this model?
When I use the key to open the car (which is always as I don't have a remote) it does not activate the switch that lowers the window a fraction - this means that in order to seal the window I need to lower and then raise the window after closing the door.
Is this a common fault and is there a quick fix?
I also think that I am going to have to replace the switch to open the fuel flap - is this a common fault or could something else be causing the problem??
Answers on a postcard please.
