    Central locking woes!!

    well i got my first Audi the other week a 2002 1.9tdi

    now comes the problems!!!


    everything worked fine until tonight when i locked the car with the fob but the drivers side door never locked!!

    locks/unlocks with the key fine and locks/unlocks all the other doors at the same time with the key but when you use the fob the drivers side wont lock or if you lock it with the key and try and unlock with the fob the drivers side stays locked!!

    ive done a search and seen a few things mentioned about the wiring in the rubber boot that runs to the door breaking so will be checking this tomorrow

    anything else i can check or any other ideas ?

    cheers stu

    Check wiring first then look at the actuator / solenoid that operates the locking mechanism.

    checked the wiring which i found two wires was not at their best!!!

    the earth was holding on by a few strands and had been err bodged before so sorted that one and there was a live wire too showing a few strands so fixed that

    problem still remains though!!!

    i think its time for a new lock for the drivers door!! as everything else seems to work fine!!

    Could be convenience module/door module tbh mate, have you got vagcom or someone you know who has it, if not then click on link in my sig to get a scan done by a member or buy vagcom.

    Reason why I say this is if the lock works manually & this also locks the rest of the car, then it indicates the lock itself is working fine, now it all depends on the lock design as the 8P has number of microswitches in the lock itself, but atm I'm not thinking lock myself, but not impossible, certainly a scan will give you some more info to pinpoint it mate.

    Ah ok well I sell genuine kit, 241 delivered mate, 1st use usually pays for itself tbh & every use after is result as free, where as audi or garage would charge each & everytime huh, dont know one buyer thats regretted it, not one, also if you change to another vag car will work no worries & if another brand outside of vag then resale value is high.

    Is the 241 for everything (obviously not including the laptop) such as software and cable, and is this the full version. Like is there anything this version cannot do, which other versions can?

    I'm very new to this, so want to get my head around it all. And sorry for hijacking your thread Stu_m...hopefully you get your central locking fixed soon!

    You buy the VCDS and then you can download the latest version currently at 908.1 http://www.ross-tech.com/vcds/download/current.html. That price of 241 is good the one i borrow cost 299. Don't be tempted to buy the cheap copies off Ebay as they won't work with the latest software and you will have no support.

    I might be interested in that VCDS offer myself...

    Sad thing is i bet i have spent that in the number of 'eBay' cables i have had over the past 3 years that work about 3 times and then break!
    One day i will learn!

    Feel free to PM anytime.

    Yes I have to say everyone learns eventually

    What people have to also take into consideration is the amount of wasted time spent using these cheap cables that maybe dont work properly, go wrong etc, afterall time does equal money aswell in the grand scheme of things, what you save in time & overall hassle buying a genuine unit is far more than what you would have gained from a cheaper alternative that wont update, no support & most likely go wrong at some stage.

    Some cheaper & much older versions interms of shareware will work & continue to work, but not for newer cars & wont allow access to all modules, so at the end of the day its your choice, but food for thought, its not just about saving a few bucks at the time of purchasing, as said above the number of wasted leads from ebay huh.

    Can not agree more... My last ebay lead cost in the region of 60!!!! (admittedly at the time i thought it was genuine..)
    It lasted all of 4 scans.....

    You are also right about wasted time! I have had hours and hours of wasted time and stress that would have been avoided with the genuine lead... I also want the nice box too put it in!

    What's the deal with future updates for example? Is this system gonna go obsolete in a year, and we need to pay to urgrade? OK, i'm actually trying to look for a reason NOT to buy it here, but struggling, haha.

    I doubt it... I really dont think manufactures will be moving away from CAN-BUS any time soon... (only reason to have a need to change the lead).

    So as long a Ross-Tech keep updating.. VCDS should keep going...

    You won't find that happening. I've had my Hex-CAN cable for at least 3 years and not had an issue.
