Where do you live?

There are loads and loads of people who can scan your car and try and reprogram your remote for you using VCDS (also sometimes called vag com).

The most likely cause is a faulty door lock or CCM unit. Either part could cost upto £50 to replace diy style.

Don't be fooled by thinking it's only VW who can help

You can do with a replacement coolant sensor and check your brake lights work, other than that nothing serious.

If you have access to VCDS, turn on the alarm beep for locking and unlock. Locking with the key, if it beeps then its locking properly.
unlocking with the key, if it beeps twice its unlocking properly.
If you get no beeps then there is a fault with door locks/ ccm/wiring.
