    Welcome to the site mate

    All MK4's with factory fitted locking will have the deadlock feature. It maybe that your car just has a faulty drivers door pin switch which acts as a safty feature so you don't deadlock yourself in

    Yep same switch but there are 2 seperate circuits for it

    With the door open and the keys still in the ignition do you get a annoying buzzing sound? If not it points to this switch being faulty. Try wiggling it around to see if the buzz starts

    The fact it carries on even with the key out the ignition could be your problem then.

    I bet you have a aftermarket headunit

    Your car does have deadlocking

    First thing to try is to remove the aftermarket headunit completly and make sure the deadlocking works.

    Next before putting it back in swap the red and yellow wires around on the back of the headunit as I suspect thats where the problem lies and it's back feeding because it's not wired up corectly.

    i had the same problem awhile back and that sorted it. 2 wires were connected the wrong way round. never follow instructions when fitting!
