Default A4 Jetta Euro Trunk Latch

I hijacked someone elses thread with this question and it's looking like it might turn into something.

[edit] It works! - jump down to Post 39 and Post 53 for details! [edit]

It makes the trunk function like a door - when the doors are unlocked there's a latch on the trunk where you lift it to open it so you don't have to reach in the drivers door and pull the button every time you want to go in the trunk. When the doors are locked the latch does not open the trunk.

Just something else that the car should have come with from the factory...
So, going above and beyond - ryanp pulled some parts on a hunch and posted up a picture of the potential parts

So he's sending it over and I'll see if it works. I'll let you know if it does or not when we get that far.

I hope it does, I'm sick and tired of having to go open the drivers door every time I want to get something from the trunk.

fitzski - thanks for the link. I know I've heard of this before and searched for it but couldn't find it.

After reading through it (and admittedly I didn't follow it 100%), it looks like ryanp's parts are on the right track. We'll see.

your missing the trunk lock which has the correct switch on it....ive done this mod years ago and if you have all the parts you only need to run one wire up to the lower A-Pillar...also replace your driver and passenger door panel like i did with euro ones if you have the funds

the euro trunk lock has two buttons on the switch...also the arm holds the one button down which allows the handle to activate the latch and the other is for when you open the truck via key the mecanism is different onthe euro lock.....also the trunk can be deactivated with the car unarmed by hitting the unarm buttonagain on the fob....and also the euro cars dont have the passeger door handle with the lock switch on it

FYI this stuff can be purchased in the states. Came in '01 and '02 jetta wagons. Ryan will CRUSH north american prices, I'm sure, but if someone wants to go the new route, they can be had...

Cheers,

based on that statement, i'm guessing you have possibly done so? or did you have an older wagon?

Yes, I have done so! SOOOO much better. Always unlocked when the doors are unlocked!

I have set my car up so that all the doors unlock as soon as I pull my key out of the ignition (with VCDS). So basically, as soon as I get somewhere, my key goes in my pocket because all my doors and my hatch are unlocked. I have also set up (with VCDS) so that ALL my door unlock with just ONE press of the unlock key. So with this one press my hatch is now unlocked too! Phenomenal I'm just having issues with the third button on my remote not working, but I have a feeling that is an issue with a coding I changed with VDS-Pro, not something to do with this mod...

So to Just install this switch, is it one hundred percent plug and play? No coding changes?

I have the parts from Ryan - have not had time to install it and/or wire it up.

I think from reading the thread linked in Post 2 of this thread that there's some additional wiring/ECU work to do to make it work OEM.

I THINK if you just install it it will work just like the interior door switch which would unlock the trunk anytime you push the button effectively leaving the trunk latched, but un-locked all the time. I don't know if you can turn the valet lock in the door switch and have it locked that way, but don't know if it will open then with the trunk switch when the other doors are un-locked.

Some things to clarify!!!

I have a Wagon, so all I needed to to was switch the "hatch wiring harness" and install the new lock with the micro-switch. Bingo - done.

On a wagon there is NO valet lock in the driver's door (not really needed as you could just reach over the rear bench and help yourself to stuff ) so I have no idea about that particular issue.

Seeing as I am on a continuing tread of Eurofying my car, I'm now on the look out for euro door cards without the hatch pop or the gas pop...
