Unless it is obvious to you in the engine compartment... look in the trunk

Windows of an Audi A4 2002 model have freezed what is the problem.

All Windows or 1? If all check fuses. layout is in owners manual as well as locations. If one window either the window switch or window motor. If you a little mechanical you can change out switch. If not find a good mechanic with references on your car. Motor is more labor intensive. Hope just the switch. If it is the fuse and you replace it and it blows again, short in the wiring. Good luck

Passenger door won't unlock Audi A4

Most probably the door lock actuator for that door is gone. Or it might just be a case of broken cable, stuck or dislocated lock actuator rod. Easy fix if you are a bit mechanically inclined.

It sounds like the starter is spinning but not engaging the flywheel. This could be caused by a few things. One, the throwout is not extending the gear teeth of the starter. If the throwout mechanism is electrical, then maybe that wire is not getting 12 volts. If the throwout is mechanical, then it is stuck. Two, there are missing teeth in the spot where your flywheel lines up to the starter gear. If the transmission is manual, try to roll the fly wheel by rolling your car (in gear clutch in) then release clutch to roll everything to a different position. Look at the old starter to see if the throwout is mechanical or electrical.

Call an Audi Dealer and give them the VIN of the vehicle. They should be able to give you the code to reset the radio. It's a anti-theft thing.

Safe code for audi A3 2001 auz1z1

It's usually printed in the owner manual. If you don't have the owner manual, you will need to go to a dealer and have them generate a code.

Either that, or join an Audi or VW forum on the Web and see if you can find a mechanic who will generate one for you using the dealer software.

Central locking

If the remote's battery has never been replaced, it's probably time now. The type of battery employed in these has a 'shelf-life' of around 5 years so if yours hasn't been replaced, you are overdue.
As far as the failure of individual door locks to operate, the mechanism may have corrosion that is impeding their travel. Check the owner's manual, it may give information about freeing sticky locks.
If you don't have an owner's manual, I can recommend the Haynes service manuals. They cost ~$20-$30 US and can be had in most auto parts stores.
