If the system was grounded at the battery or starter, someone may have left a ground wire loose or disconnected

try locking and unlocking the car with the key 3 times slowly ,other than that i have no idea ?? another trick is to disconnect battery and join the cables together for a few minutes to discharge any capacitors that may be holding a charge in the computer..Only other thing i can think of is the main dealers who have the right connectors and software to re set it all .sorry i havent been of any help

If im not mistaken,your car should have an alarm reset/override.Below the steering column,on the dash should be a slot where you put your remote transmitter to deactivate the alarm.If that works,you then need to have your remote checked and coded by a vw dealer.Good luck.

After replacing battery, the stater motor doesn't start


The starter motor should be replaced. The selenoid in the starters frequently go without warning and then the starter will do nothing until you replace it (remember to disconnect the battery negative cable first). Also if your car is financed and if you are behind one or two payments they may have remotely disabled the car and you will have to call them and work something out to get the car "released" so it will start.

I buy a audi A6 1998 and stop working and my friend say it's central locking module someone can help me out please


Does the motor turn over? If not is the battery dead? if not it could be your starter. I dont think its your central locking module. My understanding of it is that it runs your personal controls in the vehicle cab (windows, seats, radio ect) not the motor componeants

Sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor isn't. If you have a voltmeter or test light, measure for light/12 volts at the motor terminal while someone tries the key. If the solenoid is what is 'clicking', but nothing at the motor terminal, change the solenoid. If you get light/12 volts, then the motor itself is in trouble.

Central locking is flatening the battery


Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle. Unfortunately, you'll find the system which controls the door locks is the ETACS Module (which also controls many other circuits which would become disabled if you pulled its fuse).
I've run into the problem you describe. Frequently it turned out to be a bad switch in the driver's door lock/unlock actuator.... Unless I diagnose the problem myself (or some other qualified technician does it), it could be something else entirely.
