Audi a4 driver dood wont open

Iv got an a4 2003 and this morning when i went to open the car every door unlocked apart from driver door.

I got in from the passanger door and wont open from inside either. I locked the car up from inside using central locking button and tried the door again. Normally if the doors are locked the door will open on the second attempt using inner handle but no joy.

Do you reckon this is electrical ie solenoid or mechanical? Iv got no previous warning for this problem. Is this a common problem with this model?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Enter car from left rear behind the driver and see if you can manually unlock it from the inside. Then use remote to test it.

    It would be electric if there is a remote and loc, unlock seitch. The solenoid is not a powerful thin, and needs only travel ashort stroke.. The latch is apparently needing lubrication, but, first we have to open it. Try this, While holding the inside handle on the second pull, trey to unlock with the door switch and then the remote.. Sevcond, Lean on the door and push near the latch area while trying the remote. being careful not to dent the door. Stay close to the end where the latch is. third, work the other locks and note any sound difference. Can you hraer the solenoid working?.If so, Unlock with remote without working any handles. If the whole mechanism is loose, the will not be tightly closed. Putting in or out pressure may hold it still so the lock lever will be tripped., Not to worry, the lock can be undone by most tow truck drivers.

Your KEY will not unlock the Door? That has nothing to do with the FOB.

OR do you mean your FOB will not work at all?. If it is a PROGRAMMING ISSUE, you need to contact your Dealer

I recently purchased a 2007 Audi A4. When I use the remote to lock and unlock the doors, the door to the fuel tank pops open. Any clue why?


Probably has a spring that opens the door. My is the same but no spring I just have to push on the opposite side of the door and it opens. Doesn't affect the lock but I would try removing the spring that will stop it from opening. Hope this helps?

2003 audi a4 had dead battery, charged battery and now the key fob won't work and the security lights flash for about 5 min everytime I do anything to the car. why ?


Synchronization
When
Key buttons operated repeatedly while vehicle out of range and system becomes inoperative. Key batteries replaced.
How - early models
Depress lock or unlock button. Manually lock and unlock driver's door within 30 seconds. System should operate normally after approximately 1 minute. If not, carry out programming procedure.
How - late models
If vehicle locked, manually unlock driver's door using key. Press key unlock button once. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove key from ignition switch. Press key lock or unlock button once. System should now operate correctly.
