    The key battery has been changed, the alarm still works, but the doors won't lock. When I put the key in the driver's door, it locks but the passenger door and the boot stays unlocked.

Hi there.
I had exactly the same problem and there are 2 ways of solving it. The first is to pay your Audi Service Centre £350-£550 to replace it for you and the second way is to do it yourself which will cost well under £100 (depending on ebay). Firstly check the Central Locking Pump to make sure the hoses haven't come off. This is located in the very back right hand corner of the boot so you will need to remove the carpet and internal trim and you will see a block of sponge. Carefully lift the top off this and you will see the pump sat inside it.
Actually there is a great set of photos online to help you and I will add the link for you at the end. If the hoses are still connected and not leaking it is very likely that the internal compressor wheel has shattered (quite a common fault). I believe it is possible to open the pump and replace this wheel (in fact there is one for sale on a very popular auction site at the moment) but my own preference was to simply buy a whole new pump and replace that (£16.00 + £8 p+p off the same auction site).
The most important thing for you to remember is that when you look to buy a replacement pump you need to find one with the EXACT same serial number. The one in the diagram shown is
8LO 862 257 N but I have a sneaky feeling yours might end in an A.
Anyway, I hope this is of some help and dont worry about the connections as both air connectors and all 3 electrical ones are different sizes and will only fit in one place each.
Good luck.
Rik

Lock and unlock fuel tank


Hello,

I think, I don´t understand your question ;)

The fuel tank is locked automatically when you lock the car. The cover has it´s own locking module conneced to the central locking. If it does not lock, the module should be checked for damage.

Central locking has stopped working on my 1996 audi A4


The 1996 A4 uses a central locking system which is vacuum operated. Each door has a vacuum servo which raises and lowers by air pressure created by the vacuum pump. The pump is located in the trunk right behind the passenger side tail light.

Either the pump is faulty or the vacuum lines leading to it are damaged.

This problem may be best left to the Audi dealer to troubleshoot as this is very model specific and not many small shops will have experienced this problem.

Central locking not operating with the key or manually. I never had any problems with central locking of my Audi A4Tdi car but suddenly it stop working. I have checked batery and replaced them but still...


It's probably the vacuum pump for the lock mechanism. It's buried in the passenger rear of the car, accessed from the trunk. Pull out the little "pocket" bin between the right rear wheel well and the taillight, pull up the carpet, and the module is down in there. Swap it out for a new one and you should be fine.
