I have the same problem with the window stuck half way. But about the drivers door not locking, it is not supposd to. It is a Audi saftey feature so you do not lock your keys in the car. You have to lock the whole car with the remote on the key or by putting the key in the lock and doing it manually. Also when you hold the key in the unlock position for a sec it puts all the windows down and when you hold it in te lock it puts the windows up.

Either his window regulator went bad or the window has jumped off the track. I had to replace my window regulator in my 2000 Audi A4, and what a job if you plan on doing it yourself you will need a drill to drill out the riviets then new rivets to put back in. I found some Nuts and bolts to replace the rivets. I dont know what to tell you about the door locks I would tell you to have someone put the VAG tester on the car to see if it is a malfunction.

Has he checked for a blown fuse. The fuse box is found by opening the drivers door and pulling the panel off the end of the dashboard. The panel should have a fuse remover attached to the back of it to make it easier.
Good luck

I have a 2007 Hyundai Accent and I am having trouble with my doors and windows my driver side door won't unlock from the outside

There is a mechanical linkage that connects the lock cylinder to the mechanism. The linkage has a plastic coupler that has probably failed. As to the window it sounds like a failed switch. Any repair shop or body shop should be able to fix both easily.

Window lock stuck in on position

You are totally confussed here and i suggest you ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,you may need a new switch mechanism on the door from the sound of it ,these cars can be a bit funny as if you hold the key in the door lock in the open position for a few seconds then the window opens or closes depending on the key movement ,and guess what its all electronic so maybe its the switch mechanism thats had a heart attack in its dear sweet electronic brain causing your problem

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

Locks and hatchback

Open the rear inside cover and you will see where the keeper for the handle mechanism may have broken. You can get this from any part store. It is difficult to get in there but a small hand can open it for better access.

Check the wiring between the drivers door and the A pillar(the body of the car). Sometimes the harness breaks from opening and closing the door.
