sounds like the lock barrel paddle is broken,you can buy a repair kit on ebay.look under galaxy/sharan/alhambra.
does the rest of the car unlock with the fob?if not then it needs programming to the car.

Sounds like you have a few issues to me,the door lock as already said sounds like it has failed.

Remote fob could just need programming or blown fuse caused by the below?

The electrical glitches have a good check of wiring going to doors and tailgate as they are prone to breaking causing short circuits.

to reprogram the fob you need a working drivers door lock - the paddle fix mentioned above. If you have a lock on the passenger side that works (some of the older mk2s have the locks on both doors, don't think the later ones do), you can swap the handles over, but get the broken paddle fixed anyway else it will only cause you grief later on.

Or alternatively take the drivers door handle off, and try to program the fob using a flat screwdriver to turn the lock bit (put handle back on afterwards else anyone with a screwdriver can open it!). Still get the paddle bits, but that might help so you can see whats going on. Be aware its possible for the lock barrel to fall out if the paddle has broken while your there.

I found that out on my old mk1 as the drivers side barrel was missing, and I wanted to have the same key for ignition and door (no remote locking on it at that point, added a kit later on to sort that). I was going to swap the barrel over and then realised I didn't need to actually do that.

Its one of these your after to repair the lock BTW.

Various other ones available at differing prices, but should give you an idea what your looking at.
