    Auto Close windows on A3?

    Hi,

    On my current Ford Focus if i leave the windows down after getting out of the car and press and hold the locked button on my key fob its not only locks the doors but also send the windows back up. Does the Audi A3 have this?

    Thanks

    You can also enable the auto closing option using VCDS to save you having to hold the key until they close.

    As GTI Jazz said, to enable full-closure without keeping your finger on the button you need VCDS.

    If i remember correctly it is under Central Electrics -09.
    you need to go to the long coding helper and look in there. I enabled mine a couple weeks back and it works fine. need to hold button down for about 2 seconds and then once it starts winding up let the button go and it will fully close the windows.

    Not being dumb at all mate.

    VCDS (formely known as VAG-COM) is a tool that connects a computer to your VAG car and allows diagnostics and other stuff such as tweaking etc.. really good tool and well worth the investment!

    No problem, check out the VCDS thread, a cool guy on here called NHN sells VCDS, at a good price too so I hear, might be worthwhile checking it out if you're interested!

    to reset it you need to open and close the window once.... hold the switch down all the way till its open and then all the way up again until its closed in one motion. it should then work on the one touch open/close.
    You will need to do it to every window.

    Not very well.

    Buy the genuine cable, it is worth it for the support alone.

    Doesn't take many visits to Audi at 40-50 a go to pay for a genuine cable.

    I've Looked in Central Electrics -09 & Central Convinience - 46 on VCDS. And it's all blank in the Long Code Help. Can Somebody give me the code so I can Manually put in the code ?

    Yes Pauls I know cheap stuff is never worth the risk,espically on a car.

    Will buy a genuine one when funds allow as buying so much things at the moment
