Well, I feel like an ***..... I had no idea that Euro models of many brands have the deadlock setup, there must be some information in a Euro owners manual on how to enable and disable the deadlock on the GT, even if it is not working, I am very curious as to how one would enable and disable it with normal use, as now your example of the van deadlocking makes sense now because it's a Euro thing, but also strange that one would be trapped in the car, my Audi A8L W12 has something similar in a way, I have pull the inner door handle twice to unlock and open the door when locked after driving at speed.

So your latch mechanisms have something extra in them to render the inner and outer pull cables useless, this I want to see, I looked up RHD part number to search for pictures of latch, but I can not see a difference so far, still searching, maybe will find a extra lever or something else to get it out of deadlock, RHD wiring shows deadlock motor....

Do you want me to get pictures of the backside of the striker area after I get the rear side panel off, it may not be until Sunday though...

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!!!!
Ok so after every possible engineer,mechanic,postman,electrician,plumber and all round know it all have had a stab at this problem,a friend popped around this morning we talked through and I mentioned on a VW forum(door locks are the same) a guy said he uses a hammer and he hits it with a piece of wood against the lock after lots of looking and scratching of heads he pulled the inner handle again and again whilst banging around the outside of the door (the old fonzarelli method from happy days) and Shazam!!!!!! The doors opened !!! Unbelievable if he wasn't so ugly I could of kissed him but settled for a high five instead.this goes to show our thoughts that the lock wasn't fully cycling was right whod of thought a sharp bang in the correct place would solve the problem.so now I will be removing the locks cleaning and inspecting them and refitting ,I think I will leave the door trim panels off for the first few days just in case but I am happy we know what the issue was .I have to thank everyone especially Johnny Hotspur GT for your massive efforts in helping me with this and hopefully one day it will save someone from a huge bill at the dealership. I'm not sure if it's possible but can I change the title of my post to "deadlocked doors" so somoeb else can find easier. THANKS again guys
CASE CLOSED DOORS OPEN!!!

Glad to hear !!!
But I have to ask, did you not do the hip/thigh bumping of the door while pulling handles to jiggle some movement in the latch mechanism as I suggested in prior post ?

PLEASE, take pictures of the Euro style lock/latch mechanism so I can see the difference in amount of wires, levers, etc.

Thank you.

To be honest Johnny I didn't even see that part of your post although we did many times try rattling the door whilst trying levers.i will certainly try and take some pictures to check if these locks are indeed different .and we'll see if what the supposed be they master techs really know what they're going on about.thanks again mate you've been invaluable on this crusade
