Power locks have quit working, as well as keyless remote programing

the door lock system in this car is operated by a vaccume pump in the trunk. If u unplug the vaccume line leading from the pump to the car and gently blow into and **** it should activate the door locks to both locked and unlocked positions. if the locks activate then the pump is faulty if it does not activate you need to look for a vaccume leak in the lines.... there is a connector at each door post and at each door lock actuator there are 6 of them one for each door one for the trunk and one for the gas lid..

My car is a 1997 audi a4 and doesnt have remote locking but does have central locking. used to work fine but now the key only unlocks the drivers door. the other doors will not unlock. however if i unlock...

I would start with driver door lock , not the lock cyllinder , but lock assembly which is inside the door and have switches build in to it.

The lock button on the passenger door doesn't work when the ignition is at "on" position.. only works when it's on "off".. is this electrical problem? :(

some cars are fitted with autolock,car starts/car locks. some are fitted with driver masterlock button(above door switch panel)so the driver can lock all the doors/unlock for passengers to alight.but to stop you
locking the keys inside/you have them in your hand),car will not let you lock when in on position,keys in ignition/engine running etc.
so you do not have a problem.

1999 Audi A3 1.8T Electric Windows and Central Locking Won't work

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.
