Question about 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio
SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE A BLOWN FUSE OR CIRCUIT BREAKER.
Posted on Nov 07, 2010
The power windows and the mirrors use the same circuit breaker but either one can be causing the other to be off. I guess you mean the power locks work with the key not the windows as they don't work no matter what you do but the locks don't work with the inside switches only the key. Right? Your windows don't go up or down with the key in the door? Just the locks. windows arnt working at all. The central locking system and the power door locks use the same power qindow module for logic but the key switch is an override for the locks and it'll work indepentanly of the window module. So the window relay is in te main fuse box, Just above the main relay and the string of fuses the are 5 fuses just above the fuse box that aren't in the fuse box there's a 20 amp (yellow ) likly ti be the forth one from the left going right it's the power window fuse. It should only be hot with the key on. ( your locks work with the key off, only with the key in the door) This fuse powers the relay and also the lock switches inside the car. The fuse can be good and powers not getting to it. The fuse can be bad and something overpowered it in the cigar lighter or power asseriory. The ciger lighter won't work either. If the fuse is cold ( no power with a test light ) The main fuse next to the battery at the main battery connector might be blown or dirty. The cigar lighter won't work either and if this is good the circuit thogh the ingtion switch could have failed but the fuses are much more likly. The fuse can be good and its connection in the fuse holder can be bad. Don't forget a fuse can (look) good and be bad. (look) at fuses with a test light ( ice pick like tool with a ground wire with a clip wit a clear handleand the light inside the handletoch the tip to a powered idem and the light will light if the groundclip is connected to a good ground) You can get a test light at the auto or elecrtical section at hardward and dept stores and of course auto parts stores and tool strores, even gas stations. Find that thepower is going though the fuse and now were going to have to look harder. Everytime you mess with something test the windows to see if they work as you can fix the problem by just reconnecting things or even moving a dirty fuse or pushing on it to make abetter connection. Safty interlock like you sujest isn't on this car but is on the newer models ( your thinking right ) The Audi has it, the bug didnt get it yet.

Try disconnecting the battery and join the leads together for a minute or two ,but thinking about this i seem to remember having this problem on VW passat and it was something to do with remote switch on the key ,i think i had to turn ignition on then press the window lock switch and then turn it off again and they all worked as they should but i cannot remember exactly what i done as i work on so many different makes and types from generators to container fridges with onan gas engines to cars and even chain saws and strimmers for the neighbours not forgetting these tuned up hairdriers buzz bikes like vespa and now the chinese stuff as well ,come back norton and BSA
