Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbie so hi & thanks for reading this. I have a V5 Golf which is 14 years old and up to now has behaved impeccably but like me, it is now feeling its age a bit and has developed the lovely habit of opening all the windows when I either unlock it or even now when I try and lock it. It has central locking but key operated as opposed to fob. It used to be just the drivers side which did this, but now I can't lock it from passenger side either. Most frustrating. I just wondered if any of you lovely people may have come across this before, or know best way of dealing with it.

I've read on other posts about it possibly being the battery? We did have a completely flat battery which jump started into life ok, or it may be something electrical which is beyond me! Any advice or pointers would be much appreciated.

Possibly a failed central convenience module?

I think I have a working CCM from an X reg Golf V5 at home. Wasn't suffering from same issue that's for sure. They sit just below the steering wheel and I think can suffer from water ingress due to the wiring going up above it through into the scuttle panel. Whilst (if) changing it, it would be worth checking all is sealed under the scuttle panel (round the area of the wiper motor / linkages)
