My problem is a little different. My electric door lock works okay except when the battery in the fob goes dead. That's when I found that when I insert the key in the lock, it spins 180 degrees and does nothing. There is no resistance, like it's not connected to anything.

15F outside, the passenger door froze up this morning... ...I am dealing with it now. The handle was a bit stiff when I opened it, now it is stuck unlatched meaning I can't get to work this morning.

Use a heat gun or a hair dryer to heat it up. Then clean it and use graphite lube to fix it. The grease that VW uses is too thick in the winter,it also gets gummed up.

That's what I needed to do. My heat gun is too hot. The wife isn't very happy I had her hairdryer outside all morning though.

I made it to work, two hours late.

I used a heat gun when I was out of town, and then my wife's hair dryer when I got home from out of town. Good thing I didn't have to stop and pee on my 5 hour drive, I would have been stuck at some gas station looking for a heat gun or hair dryer . lol

I hope it is fixed now, I cleaned and lubed it yesterday, was +3C here. (that is somewhere above 32F)

Add another to the list...has happened multiple times...the worst part is that my car insists a door is ajar so even though I can open and close the door, I can't lock it....hairdryer works, but what a pain....add in my randomly " frozen" or seizing wipers below - 15c and I hate winters

Mincanada - take it to Norden, hand them $500 and they will replace the locking mechanism like they had to do to mine last year.

Just had my 2013 Jetta into the dealer for a passenger door lock issue that occurred this past Friday. The passenger front door would not latch shut, and although it was very cold out, it wasn't a frozen lock.

Burdick VW ended up replacing both drivers and passenger side latches assemblies under warranty. Although I'm still not pleased that twice in 6 weeks my relatively new VW has spent a 4 day weekend in the shop, and of course, loaners are never available. This is actually the third warranty related item since November. Glad it happened while I still have ~1800 miles on my bumper to bumper factory warranty.

It's actually pretty easy to take apart the handle and mechanism, and I HATE dealing with door panels, etc. We had it off in about an hour, and back on in about a half. I ended up having to replace the cable as the end snapped out of it. I soaked the MF'er in water resistant silicone lubricant, so hopefully no recurrences. The part from the dealer ran me about $32.

late to the party but I guess it's not just me.
I did notice though when I'm driving and put my hand on the handle inside, the driver side is cold and I can feel almost like a little draft where the passenger side's door handle from the inside is warm. Could this be a design flow or some sort?
