Question about 1999 Audi A4
The locks on my car all of a sudden do not work either manually (button in car) or by remote. When I push the remote the Hazard lights flash and turns on the alarm as usual but, nothing moves mechanically (the knobs do not go up and down). I have tried interchanging the fuses but, nothing changed the result. Any suggestions....I don't want to take it to a mechanic or a dealer to get robbed for something that might be simple.
It sounds like the vacuum pump has gone out. The locks are vacuum-pump operated, and they're known to eventually fail on these and VW cars. Check that out - in my 99, the unit is in the trunk, passenger side. You have to remove the storage well between the wheel arch and the taillight, and pull the carpeting back, and the unit is down there just a bit below floor level.
