Re: Audi electrical problem
Computer has glich ???the control function for the key also opens the windows and roof if fitted ,and something is activating this now their is most likely a sensor that recieves the signal from the key and most likely cause is this sensor.but where it is in the vehicle i havent a clue if you activate this then listen for the relay thats being operated to perform these functions then just remove it and see if windows still open,if they do then problem solved but if they dont then take vehicle to dealers who will have appropiate software.

First check if the section in front of your windshield is not flooded. Remove the plastic cover and check. This often occurs when the drain (between battery and brake booster) gets clogged.
If that is the case, best to remove the battery, and clean that rubber funner (stick finger in or similar).
Also possible: check the trim of the A pillar has water stains. If that is the case, the drain of your sunroof is plugged. There are 2 drain holes that connect to hoses that lead to the bottom of the car. Often a shot of compressed air can unclogg them.
Also possible: the trim at the bottom of the windshield is not sealing properly anymore, and water run UNDER it (instead of over hit). That water can then run into the cabin air filter (passenger side near windshield under the hood IIRC).
If your car has a sunroof, one if the sunroof drains runs down through windshield post down through to bottom of the car. If it gets plugged it will back up into car.
If it's coolant you're finding (sticky and smelling like coolant) your heater core is leaking
to reset any window open it half way down then let it fully close and hold the button up for about 10 seconds. do this mithod to all auto windows encloding the sunroof . afterall try them from the driver side
Statistacally--most leaks come from sunroofs and yes they can be one side or the other. Happens from clogged drains. Sunroof drains run across the headliner and down the a-pillar. you can have them cleaned and checked. This is all assuming you have a sunroof. Hope I helped. Thanks.
unhook the battery completely and see if it will start after a couple of days. if it does you probably have a wire stripped and grounded out. all you need to do is install a power disconect key in the car, and you wont have any more problems.
Carefully check the rubber gasket around the glass. Sometimes some debris (leaf, pine needles, etc) get caught between the seal and glass, allowing water to 'wick' inside. Not sure about the Jetta, but my Honda has a drain that sometimes plugs up with debris and goop, causing water to stay inside, sometimes dripping inside as u go around a corner. Best way to fix is to blow compressed air thru drain hole to clear. Last, check around sunroof and roof itself where they meet. Any damage to seal at roof, or torn rubber? If anything looks like it might leak, u can seal it w/ caulk. Check your home center for caulk that works on windows (exterior), it'll work on the car.
Hi i have an audi a4 and the drivers window fails to open and close properly and there is a strange clicking when doing so. It sounds like there is a stone inside the window but i think it may be a mechanical fault with the electic window ........help
