Question about 2004 Audi A4
I have a problem with my A4 2004. Initially, the problem was that I lost all power to my driver side door and power windows didn't function for any door. Also, interior light remained on when door was closed. Chimes didn't for driver side door when kept open nor did it function to notify me if headlights were left on after car was turned off.
I took it to the dealer and they were able to detect that a cable was cut from wear and tear. The cable in question feeds the driver door power to the control panel. The cable is located in the same place as the door hinge (below it) surrounded by a rubber tube that connects from the main body to the door.
I took back the car without getting it repaired with them (would have cost me 500.00 for wire replacement including labour) and I spliced the cable back together. After successfully connecting the cable back, all my power windows functioned EXCEPT for my driver window.
1) driver power window not functioning
2) rear passenger doors DO not locking with either remote or interior door lock. The alarm beeps when I set the lock but I can still open rear doors.
3) Driver side door lock does function with remote. If I use key, it locks and sets alarm but passenger rear doors are still open.
3)driver alarm LED initially flashes when remote key lock is pressed but then LED remains lit (doesn't flash intermittently the way it should)
4)power mirrors function from driver side panel
Could this be a fuse issue? I checked them previously and I did not see any visible burnt fuses. I may need to test them.
Also, are the symptoms related to a door latch problem? I've read that this is sometimes an issue.
Maybe something needs to be reset with the computer?
Any help is appreciated. Sorry for the long text. I'm hoping to provide as much useful information as possible.

There's a TSB on that problem. It involves broken wires in the A and B pillar from the central convenience module to the rest of the car. Ask your VW dealership or what not for a more specific answer.

I have the same problem with the window stuck half way. But about the drivers door not locking, it is not supposd to. It is a Audi saftey feature so you do not lock your keys in the car. You have to lock the whole car with the remote on the key or by putting the key in the lock and doing it manually. Also when you hold the key in the unlock position for a sec it puts all the windows down and when you hold it in te lock it puts the windows up.

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.
