Question about 2011 Audi A3
I have an Audi A3 2003 TDI, I ulocked my car and drove off to visit a friend, when i got there i wanted to press the gate buzzer but could not open my windows, so i thought strange, must be a fuse. Then when i tried to lock my car i could not activate the alarm with my remote, i could only manually lock the car with my key by inserting it into the keyhole, The alarm still did not activate, but the doors was locked. I checked every single fuse in the side of dashboard and inside the engine compartment. Some beleive it might be the master window motor that controls both those functions that might be busted. I would like a second opinion if anyone can provide it.

will your passenger door open with the key and is it just one side that your windows are not working or both. if its just one side it might be your regulator motor in the door thats not working if its both it might be your central locking pump usually in the boot. however if both of them are working fine it could be that your key needs reprogrammed however i think the 1st 2 are more likely to be the problem.

First check the battery voltage when the windows and door locks will not work (before driving) Will they function if you connect a battery charger? (Low battery voltage) This condition may be related to the security system (if installed) or poor electrical connection to the battery bus that is overcome when the alternator is charging.Be sure to check for 12V connection to the ECM and security Module (if installed)
You will probally need a schematic to check the wireing, Start with the 12v to the windows switches and discover where the power is missing. It will probally be common to the lock problem at some point.
