Hello all. I have read endless amounts of threads on this and 2 other audi/vag forums. So please dont get stressed if I ask something that has already been covered, my search skills usually find the answer i need, unless of course it hasn't been covered before....
I have a 99 A4 B5 Avant , recently bought it with a few problems which i really want to get sorted out.
1- No keyless entry working
2- No alarm working
Here's a description of the car..
-The car's 5 doors all lock and unlock as they should via the central locking system when the key is turned in driver's door
-The central locking pump doesn't over-run ever. I here it for 5 seconds max when in use. (air-lines all good)
-The alarm never goes off, the hazards never flash when locking the car, the siren is still connected in the boot and looks fine
-No signs of water leakage in any foot wells, or the right-rear stow area which holds the central locking pump and alarm siren
-The red security LED's on the driver and passenger doors never flash when the car is locked. The only time I have seen them light up is when i press the motion sensor kill switch on the 'b' pillar - this results in them lighting up for about 3 seconds steady, then turning off again
-The 3-button switchblade key has been checked by a decent auto locksmith - he says the key is giving off a signal as it should.
-The red puddle lights on both front doors function as they should when a door is opened.
-Front, middle and boot section roof/interior lights function as they should - they turn on and off exactly as they should when doors are opened and closed.
-Only the boot being opened gives an animation on the driver information module (red screen in dash). As this is the facelift model, im quite sure it should show animations for when any of the 5 doors are opened, not just the boot.
-As soon as all doors are closed, and i lock the car with the key in the door, all lights immediately shut down as they should and i here (and check) all 5 doors lock as they should.
Hopefully you guys can give me some useful information on this, id be greatful.
