Unhappy Driver side door problems...

I have a 2006 Jetta, I recently went to the VW dealer to get my car worked on due to recalls, total of 4 recalls one being an airbag issue, which might be related to my next question.

Has anyone had any problems with the driver side door wiring harness? After having my car worked on at the dealer i had problems with the the entire door, they quoted to have not touched or ruined anything but after complaining and bickering they are going to work on it this week, since it still is under warranty and everything had been working before i even went to the dealer. My driver side window, door locks, trunk, gas tank is SOL right now , nothing is working. Door ajar is showing when all doors are closed. Any related issues toward this would help me, so i know before i take it in! Thanks!

I also have an 06 Jetta and my car just started doing this last night. I think its the door harness. I don't know much about cars (i'm a girl) but when you open the drivers door there is a rubber boot near the hindges. The boot is easy to remove. It will reveal part of the wiring harness. I saw 2 wires split and I think thats the problem. A new wiring harness is around $170+ or you can use a butt connector as a temp fix to get them back togeather. As for the fuel release if you can get into your trunk you can access a manual release cord to open the fuel door. Good Luck
