    electrical problem with a3 2004 Help!!plz!!!

    Hi guys, massive problem with my car,its doing my head in. Last night i went to lock my car and it wouldnt lock! i also noticed the whole drivers side door is not working! the electric windows arent working from that side, the electric mirrors wont work, the door wont lock electronicly, and the car wont alarm atall! when you use the fob to lock the car it locks every door but doesnt like the driver door and the hazard lights dont flash! ive checked fuses and they seem fine, its like the drivers side door has completely died! the buttons arent even illuminating on the door! Its asiff it has lost power completely to the door.

    Please can someone help!

    Cheers

    Check the connectors/loom between the door & the car as sometimes wires can snap in there or somethings come loose either there or inside the door of which door card removal is advised as above.

    Also dropping the battery off for half an hour will give the door module a reset. The door module controls everything on the door.

    Bit extreme but unless the fault is in the car side of the door loom, I guess that would work.

    You work at a steelers by any chance ? LOL
