    thank you... so this is normal with audi cars? so each door would have to be locked manually when the engine is already running? it's very different from other european cars.. usually we would be able to lock the doors except the driver's door when it's open...

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.

I can't find the fuse for the power windows on a 1998 Lincoln Navigator


All the other windows work ? Not a fuse , one fuse powers all the windows . Test for B+ voltage at the switch an the window regulator would be the proper diagnostic procedure . Do you own a volt meter ? know how to read a wiring diagram ? how to do basic automotive electrical testing . The Faint click you hear is probably a relay , which means the GEM - genaric electronic modual is energizing the window relay . The windows are computer controlled .

The GEM will activate the OTD Relay until one of the following conditions is met:
  • The LF regulator control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The LF regulator control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the down position (first detent) or one touch down (OTD) position (second detent).
  • Seven seconds have elapsed since the OTD was initiated.
  • A window regulator electric drive stall condition is detected on the one touch down sense line inputs.
The UP window operation is not controlled by the GEM. The feature is activated when the delayed accessory is active and the LF window regulator control switch is pressed to the UP position. The switch provides delayed accessory power to one side of the motor and ground to the other side through the one touch down relay. The one touch down relay is not active when the LF regulator control switch is in the UP position.
Passenger windows may be raised or lowered using the LF master control switches or the appropriate passenger window switch. Passenger window switches receive power when the delayed accessory relay is active and the LF remote lock-out switch is in the UNLOCK position. When in the LOCK-OUT position, the passenger windows are deactivated.
The GEM controls manual down and auto down window movement with the down window relay. The relay is activated by applying ground directly to one side of the down window relay coil, and deactivated by removing the ground signal.
The delayed accessory relay provides power for the operation of the power windows and the power moon roof. The delayed accessory feature is active when the ignition switch is in the RUN or the ACC position, or when the ignition switch is changed from RUN or ACC to the OFF/LOCK position and the LF and RF doors are closed.
The GEM will deactivate the delayed accessory feature when:
  • the LF door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
  • the RF door is ajar and the ignition switch is in the OFF/LOCK or KEY-OUT position.
  • 10 minutes have elapsed since the ignition switch was changed from ACC or RUN to the OFF/LOCK position.
Feature inputs:
  • LF door open warning switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
  • RF door open warning switch (open circuit with door closed, grounded with door ajar).
  • Ignition switch RUN position (battery potential on both the RUN and RUN/ACC inputs).
  • Ignition switch ACC position (battery potential on the RUN/ACC input).
  • Ignition switch OFF/LOCK position (absence of battery potential on the RUN, RUN/ACC, and START inputs).

Door locks unlocks


Sounds like the main wiring loom into the door has been damaged.
Check near the hinges, where the door swings, to see if any damaged wires. Does the door lock and unlock from the drivers side switch?

Mercedes c class 2001 elegance, key fob not working everytime its pressed. I have had the batteries checked and they are still working fine, any advice as to what is causing this?


Most likely needs to be re matched to the car.

Two bits of info off the net for you

C CLASS (1993-1997), E CLASS (1995-1997), SLK (1996-)
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds manually lock or unlock the vehicle using the passenger's door lock or the boot lock.
Alternative method
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds, switch the ignition ON.
Alternative method
Procedure
1. Point the remote control at the receiver - this should be located in the driver's door handle or next to the boot lock button.
2. Press the lock/unlock button.
3. Within 30 seconds, turn the ignition switch to position II.


and

1. Place key in ignition lock and turn to position 2 [all ignition lights on]
2: Turn key to off position and remove from ignition.
3. Within 10 seconds:
3a: press the Close [Lock] button and hold it down
3b: while the Close button is still depressed simultaneously press the Open [Unlock] button. Press and release the Open button 5 times [still holding the Close button down]
3c: Release both the Close and the Open buttons at the same time, and immediately push any of the two Open buttons once [i.e. either the Open doors or the Open Tailgate]

This information is for the resetting of a previously synchronised key to match the security system after batteries have been removed or replaced. This information does not work with new keys which it seems must be taken to a person with a key synchronisation device [or a super-ripoff-expensive MB dealer]

hope this helps

You need to replace the electric door lock solenoid.The electrical part of the solenoid may be compromised and is not letting the solenoid arm retract or extend to lock/unlock your door.
