    convenience modual

    hi all, basically my key fob has not worked since i got the car, now the windows have stopped working,reading through some threads about this problem i pulled the carpet in the passenger footwell to see if the convenience mod is wet or anything but i cant find anything that even resembles it.
    any help or pics to where it is exactly would be great.
    tks

    theres a common fault with this car and it happend to me. the wiring loom in the drivers door ie the loom that comes from the car not the loom on the door panel is broken. the loom plugs into the door pillar and goes through a rubber sleeve into the door. between the pillar and the door indide the rubber sleeve the wire breaks and causes all sorts of faults. i bought a new loom from TPS 71 quid, and fitted it and that was the end of the problem.

    so do i take off the door card and strip back all the rapping around the wires. normally when you put the key into the drivers door and hold it one way all the windows will go down this doesn't happen now either.

    theres a fair chance it could be the loom mate. if you can take the loom out then you can look at it propper. it comes out through the hole in the door where the rubber sleeve is when you disconect it and pull the plug out of the a post.

    You may also need to check that one but it is most likely to be the one from the car piller to the door as its the one that bends every time the door is opened or closed. I also had a problem here on my previous A4 I managed to do a wire repair and sleaved it all with shrink wraps.

    So the wire may be in the rubber sleeve from the door to the car

    thats what i have been saying, to check the wire thats inside the sleeve cause thats were it breaks. the loom on the drivers door controls a lot of things and it being broke can affect all doors. like i say to check the loom propper its better to take the loom out of the door cause it is awkward if you dont.

    ok so i removed the door card and speaker i pulled the wire through and striped it back about 6 inches from where it comes through into the door,all the wires were fine,there was a small bit of wet on the lowest part of the wire nearest the bottom of the door but the wire wasn't broke so that shouldn't matter should it.

    I agree if it is your module gone you will wish it was the loom, mine cost nearly 600 altogether trying to find out what the problem was and getting it sorted. I dont like saying get it done at audi but it would have been cheaper for me because i got it fitted at a garage but still had to take it to audi to have my key fobs programmed to the car which was 115+vat at audi for 5 mins work i kid you not. Good luck

    Under the passenger seat I think, you might need to remove the seat and peel back the carpet.

    you don't have to take the seat out. there is a few bits of plastic trim, that need pulling out, ie, the footwell trim and the door shut trim, once they are pulled up, you can reach under the carpet and pull the black box that houses the module out,

    I got a new module and went to Audi and asked them to reprogram the new one from the old one, i left the old one plugged in but hanging out from under the carpet, so all they had to do was un-plug it after reading it on there compuer, plug the new one in and re program it, charged me 30 mins labour, i then re fitted the module into the black box and put it back in place and put the trim back on, easy as pie,

    cost me about 150 all in,

    Exclamation

    best thing to do is this, Contact your audi dealer, get the part number from them for your car, search on ebay for the part number, i do have a module that "Might" fit your car but i will need the part number 1st, the One i have is 8E0 959 433 CA FROM A B7, you really need to get the right part number including the last 2 letters or it may go titis up at the programming,
