Question about 2005 Audi A3

1 Answer

Audi A3 2004 remote opens door then it locks straight away

When pressing the remote you hear the locks opening but on the drivers door it immediately locks again. The passenger door and tailgate remain open. If you use keep pressing the open/lock buttons on the drivers door it will stay open after a few presses. It does seem to be intermittent. Anyone any ideas?

Lady,
Take a screwdriver and a foot rule. With the screwdriver remove the driver side plastic moulding that holds the window pane straight. Jus put the screwdriver blade under the moulding and press downwards so tha the moulding moves upwards. When the moulding is out, insert the foot rule or any thing hard and flat and thin between the glass and the door frame inline with the lock. When you feel resistance, press harder and you will hear a click. The lock has opened. Remove the keys and replace the moulding. It is press fitted. Press it till you hear a number of clicks. I have seen cops do it in LA while towing away locked cars.

Audi A6 Anti Theft Central Locking Tantrums


Sounds like you are having problems with your built-in alarm system. Like most systems in your Audi, you can read the error codes stored in the controllers. It takes a tool normally only a dealer has (VW or Audi) or an adapter like the VAG Com. (Google it)

I also think you can disable the alarm system and just use the key.

Could the lock button on your remote be stuck? Use a different key/remote. (leaving the suspect key at home.) The keys/remotes can be taken apart....

as for the alarm sounding and the boot open info it is probably a faulty boot contact, so the alarm thinks the boot is open therefore the circuit is open on the alarm , the car is thinking it has been broken into. it will also come up on the driver info that your boot is open too.

Passenger door not opening with central locking


1st wind the glass down and turn the key in the driver door twice in clockwise direction to lock, at the sound of the second click try try opening the door thru the window (passenger) manually. you will need to pull the knob twice before it opens. you can get all the passenger doors open this way until you decide to change central lock system. To activate the remote; insert the key into driver door while pressing the lock or unlock button on the remote for at least five-ten seconds which should get it functioning normally again. hope this helps. it worked on mine.
