You may need to get it checked with Vagcom but check if any motion sensor that can be switched off . Also seen low car battery playing fun and games with electrics , could explain opening manually with key .Most fast fit or accessory shops / Halfords will load test battery foc . Could also be battery in alarm sounder .This is the best I can find just now to explain better ,

I would start with a battery check. You could do this with a cheap multi meter. It gives good example on u tube.
