this is great! thanks!
i do have one place where i am a bit confused though, i didnt understand exactly which way the sensor slides out of the handle, from the shape of both it would seem it slides out from the non-hinge end of the handle. although i wasnt sure what you meant by "prise"?
if that is correct, when you slide the new sensor back in, do you do so wires first from the non-hinge end of the handle? Yes
Brilliant guide and thank you! Are they known for getting water logged? Mine occasionally does not work and I have a fresh in my key.
I hope these pics help to explain what I was meaning.
When putting the sensor back in put wire in first from the end nearest where the blank part was.
Prise small screw driver where#1 is to remove the sensor it's just to release the tabs on either side of it as per pic above with the arrow.
Sorry to pull up an old thread, but does the car need fault codes clearing once the new sensor is installed to get it working? I'm going to tackle mine this weekend but not really much point unless I've got VCDS.
Great post, thanks for the helpful photos.
Just bought my car with advanced keys and realised how they work... ...however, the driver door sensor isn't working but passenger side is.
- Are the driver/passenger side interchangeable? (ie, can I swap them)
- How much do the sensors cost from the dealer?
- my start button is really worn, how much are they from dealer and easy to replace??
Thanks in advance for any help and info,
EDIT - Derp... Just read text at bottom of article... ...didn't see that on my iPad. Thanks! Si
Both my door sensors on my 2012 Pre-Facelift just started acting up. Can no longer unlock the car once the car is parked for > 30 minutes, not sure. However, my door sensors work once the vehicle is unlocked using the remote's unlock button. I can lock/unlock using the sensor. Now at first I thought my car's battery was weak so I charged it last night. This morning, same issue.
Can those who had bad or faulty door sensors confirm that the trunk light did not light when the door sensors were not responding?
Shamus, thanks for the DIY steps! I just replaced mine and they work perfectly.
