AHA, makes mucho sense now.  I saw the "loose"pin in the latch and thought
it was broken, still may be.  When I got the car the alarm to drivers lock
was disconnected but worked fine from pass side.  Should have left it that
way!  Hooked up the drivers side and have had a few problems.  I'd like to
think they are all solvable.  On my second avant, I think someone got tired
of trying.  The alarm arms and goes off properly but no horn, I think it got
disconnected!  Now on to replacing all vacuum lines in search of poor boost
