Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2003 TT Roadster. Window issues after sensor replacement. This winter I had a sensor in the door replaced, symptoms included: 1. door alarm sounding intermittently, triggered by Chicago potholes 2. Windows would intermittently lower, triggered by Chicago potholes. Audi dealer replaced a door sensor in January for $1,000.00 and all seemed well, until May when I lowered the ragtop. Then the windows would not completely close unless the car was moving. I returned to the dealer for a top latch adjustment and paid another $150.00, because the dealer said it was a NEW problem. What do you think?

Is the wiring good going to the O2 sensors? Maybe just look the car over and see if you have any bad grounds. They can do weird things. Could be a bad ICU.

SOURCE: convertible top won't close

If you look int he holes where the latch goes into, you'll see a little switch. This is not telling the car that the top is closed. You could try to "gently" pry the little arm up, or move the switch a bit (don't force it). You'll most likely find the right position for it, and it will close. Also check the pin for the motor arm. Face the trunk, open, you'll see the top boot. Peel back the weather strip in the top right of the trunk opening, and that will allow the boot to be peeled down. You'll immediately see a golden colored rod with some joints. There is a pin that falls out occasionally, that needs to be tapped back in, or replaced. If the pin is still in the rod, remember the orientation. The pin is tapered. This part is often overlooked, and causes a lot of expenses for troubleshooting.

SOURCE: Convertible Top "Sensor"??

I'm sorry, the message I got was to clarify my problem, and the problem was this: The power top on my 2008 TT Roadster would neither go up nor down via electronic control, and the emergency remedy, a.k.a. release the pressure on the pistons via wild goose chase through a hole in the driver's side deep in the trunk. REMEDY:
I took the car to the dealership and they replaced the "convertible top flap motors". The top works, but they laughed when I asked for an emergency pair, even though the service manager told me that the emergency piston release remedy recommended in the manual was pretty much useless. I must say that aside from my bitter words about the problem, and my consternation, there are few things that are as relaxing as a cruise around the Croton Reservoir system with the top down.

Lots of rain, lots of things not working now

Is it a convertible? Mine has the same problem and the electronic control panel is located in under the rear window. I think moisture accumulates and short circuits the control panel. I am not a machanic but when it dries out it is fine.

Fuel cap and boot release buttons not working

I have a 2001 Audi TT Audi TT roadster, 87,000 miles. I love the car, but like all cars, things happen.

Open your checkbook, It is the command module , under your back glass, where the top goes , you will see a small door cut into the felt. Mine got wet and started a whole chain of events.

Seal that Window Good. 800$ repair to replace the comman module.

1. Windows were going up and down 1/4" all random times.
2. The Gas Release and Trunk Release buttons stop working
3. Alarm would go off at odd times.
4. Trunk would not open automatically.

To open the Trunk, behind the passenger seat is a small box, open it with you key and you will see the manual trunk release

To open your gas cap, on the passenger side of the trunk, you will see a small felt opening under the gas cap. Open it and pull back decently hard and the gas cap will open.

Good Luck.
