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.

Have you cleaned out the drain tubes? There is a 'rain rail' underneath the rear lip, which diverts water off the top and down to tubes on each side. The tubes get clogged up with leaves and whatnot. You can use a coathanger to CAREFULLY clear the debris. Check out www.miata.net for more Miata information than you could imagine.

Happy Motoring!

Central locking and alarm going off changed battery on key and still not working


I think it's in the boot on A4's?

Could it have bee disturbed somehow (loading stuff into boot?) or got wet/damp?

Other things to look for are corrosion to wiring leading into the central locking ECU, which (depending on which A4 it is) could be in the NSF footwell behind the carpets and plastic trim panels. Some A4's are bad for "dry" soldered joints in the loom leading up to the module.

When you manualy operate the OSF door and get in, does the interior light come on and does the "Door open" dash information module still function corrently?

2004 Audi A3 power windows and central locking have stopped working, are these on the same fuse!!!


Yes they are on the same fuse. If changing the fuse doesn't fix the problem check the passenger footwell for dampness as water can get into the convenience control unit from a possible leaking pollen filter housing. If there is no dampness, the control unit could still cause this problem and it;s situated under the carpet in the passenger footwell.

The Audi A6 2002 model I have started with the central locking not working, via key fob and then completely (aka unlocking manually or pressing the internal buttons). Now the alarm goes off when anything...


I have the same problem - it is the central locking controller found under the passenger seat footwell carpet. If water has got into the footwell it will form a pool in the control unit. The connectors will rot after time and perhaps the unit PCB inside the non-waterproof casing may also be damaged. It is not easy to get at this - remove the glovebox and wrench away at the moulded carpet and see if there are signs of damage (especially you are aware of water ingress).

Locating central locking pump


I think it is very likely that it sits at the same place as in my car, which is a 92' model. Anyway, in my car it is located beneath a round cover under the carpet in the right front of the trunk.
Hope this was of any help:)
