Question about 1999 Audi A6
I have a 1999 Audi A6 2.4 tiptronic and the central locking system has failed . You can enter or exit the car from the drivers door only via the key , all the other doors remain locked , neither the key fob or the switch on the drivers door unlock the other doors , even the interior handles dont release the doors , the fuse box is impossible to access with not being able to open the passengers door ! Help . Thanks , John

I have been having similar problems. The clutch is slipping as thats how you get the variable gears when in full auto, but this is where the problem comes from, some garages (auto gearbox specialists) are now able to fix it. Do not go to Audi as all they do is replace the gearbox (very expensive). There is no quick fix though! Sorry for the bad news!!

SOURCE: water damaged 99 Audi A6 Avant
On right hand drive vehicles there is a 'convenience' ECU under the front passenger side carpet (I think it swaps and is under the right hand side in a left hand drive) This ECU operates and controls all the systems you have described, they suffer water damage very easily. This will be the cause of your problems and unfortunately will need to be replaced and coded. The ECU was put in this place to keep it well out of the way of any contamination such as water, then the cars ended up leaking water straight on to it! The carpet in the front can be lifted up from the edge by the door with a few trims removed. You probably had quite a lot of water in there because water runs to the back of the car, by the time its visible in the back a lot of water has entered. Let me know if you want anymore imformation.
