Depends on the weather....hour or two.. I would take off the door panel and make sure the plastic liner is there or wrap the module up to insulate it

Window won't go up or down on drivers side of 2007 pathfinder

Is this using the master control? Any other windows not working? Logically the driver's window gets the most use. Could be a problem with either the control module in that door, or the switch, or the door mounted window motor.
It will be a process of elimination, starting with whether one or all windows don't work. No windows working, check fuse.
all other windows working, check drivers switch, control module and window motor.
please get back to us on what was the solution as it may help others on the future, thanks.

Audi a6 central locking problem. Both of rear doors doesnt close. Has it got anything to do with the comfort module which controls central locking ?

Either it can be issue with blown fuse controlling the central locking or its issue with central locking control module.Many a times these module gets wet,due to water getting collected there and after that such problem starts.Clean the water and dry that area and recheck,if its working.

Cayenne wet carpets post huge service, which included new front brakes, replacement of AWS control module??? Never had issue until delivered post service. Please help!!!

If this happens when you're running the AC, the case drain is plugged. It is a flat looking rubber drain hose that lets condensate overboard before it wets the carpet. If it happens any other time, I'd look for a leaking heater core.

Central locking and alarm going off changed battery on key and still not working

I think it's in the boot on A4's?

Could it have bee disturbed somehow (loading stuff into boot?) or got wet/damp?

Other things to look for are corrosion to wiring leading into the central locking ECU, which (depending on which A4 it is) could be in the NSF footwell behind the carpets and plastic trim panels. Some A4's are bad for "dry" soldered joints in the loom leading up to the module.

When you manualy operate the OSF door and get in, does the interior light come on and does the "Door open" dash information module still function corrently?

I think you're in luck. There is a recall for the master switch due to this very issue. Act like you don't know what's wrong, they'll need to replace it to an updated one that won't be so prone to water infiltration.

My 1999 vett got wet and stalled . When dried out started and it ran good for about 5 miles then engine service light and traction control light on dash went on, it also said reduced engine power. Checked...

Hello my name is Ben. Those are both throttle position sensor codes. Considering that you said it got wet, there may be some water hidden in the connectors of the Throttle Actuator Control module. There is an access panel in the passenger front wheel well. I would remove that panel and check the connectors on the module. They must be clean, dry and tight. While you are there examine all the wiring. Also, pull the passenger's side floor mat and feel for wetness, then check the passenger's fuse box behind that little piece of carpet for water infiltration. Hope this helps, Ben.
