I also had the same problem (2000 jetta vr6, 135k). There is a 10 amp mini fuse that blew out on my car, disabling the remote access to door locks, TRUNK, interior lights, window, and moonroof control. Try replacing that first. Oh and buy several. Mine blew a few times due to a loose contact in the same panel location as the moonroof dial. The laterally moving switch controlling the interior light has a spring holding 'it', and a metal plate in place along with a little metal tab behind that panel. What a chore that was to fix. Tell me if you come across THAT as well.
