    Doors open read out on DIS.

    I dont think this is meant to happen!

    When I open the drivers door my DIS shows that the drivers door is open. But If I have my drivers door shut and open the passenger door is shows that both doors are open!

    It's probably the contact switch on the door locks., or the contact circuit. I've just had one replaced at Audi for 170, and that was a good deal. Originally I got quoted over 220 as the door trim has to come off.

    Does it still show as open when the drivers is shut without passengers open & do the lights go out normally?

    Not too sure what you mean?

    When both doors are shut the dis shows them shut. When the drivers is open on its own the dis shows just the drivers door open. If only the passenger door is open the dis shows both doors open!

    Do you have any probs with the Boot, or is it just the doors??

    It could be the microswitch thats causing a problem, there is a common fault on the S3, where in the heat it thinkst that the drivers door is open, i know thats slightly different to what you are having, but it could be something along those lines causing the problem....

    The boot reports back fine. HAs anyone changed a micro switch themselves cos I dont like the sound of 200 from Audi.

    Hi there, I had a similar problem a while back - drivers door showing a open intermittently - also meant the alarm wouldnt set. I think its the micro switch and there was a link to replacing the microswitch - looked a bit fiddly so I bought the whole latch assembly from Audi for about 40 and fitted it myself. There's a link on here somewhere about how to do this which I followed - took a few hours but saved me a few quid.

    Thanks, I take a look for the guide cos my alarm doesn't arm either so it may be the same issue you had. How did you diagnose which door switch needed replacing cos mine only has issues when opening the passenger door but its the drivers door that displays as open too!!!

    Sounds odd that both doors are causing a problem - mine was definately only the drivers side. Wish I could find that link for you - there were pictures in the guide.

    I'll give the WD40 trick ago later that seems like the cheapest/easiest/fastest thing to try at the moment. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Ok the WD40 didn't do a thing except get rid of an annoying squeak I had on the passenger door handle. Oh well I'll get the doors apart at some point.
