Question about 2000 Audi A6
It is a problem with the VW central lock "total closure" system. Your A6 has a system to automatically roll up all windows and central lock if you hold the button on the remote for more than five seconds when closing.
This system may get jammed and roll down the windows instead. The problem is an acknowledged factory defect.
The fault may be caused by a jammed Total Closure System or by a contact in the BCM (body control module) connector located under one of the front seats (driver in lhd).
Check if the carpets are wet. In that case the short in module contacts is possible.
On the Internet there are many forums discussing the problem, with users saying that they fixed the problem by holding the remote button, or by disconnecting the battery with windows closed
This solutions may work, but the only professional way to fix the problem is done at a VW dealer, by connecting a VagCom tool to the control module to reset it, and if the problem persists by disabling the Total Closure function.
Total closure can be disabled (or module reset) only using a Vag Com, that is an expensive tool available at VW authorized garage.
The job should not be too expensive, as no part is required.
Also ask the dealer if there is any recall possibly covering the repair. VW knows about the issue, and several service bulletins were issued.
Here a forum on the problem.
