My Audi A4 Avant has developed a problem. At first it was just that it would report to me that the boot is open when it is not open.
I could live with this, however yesterday evening the alarm was going off keeping the neighboursup. Not a good way to be popular where you live.
So I need to get it fixed urgently.
"If the vehicle has been unlocked withthe key at the drivers' door the key must be inserted in the ignition lock andthe ignition switch on within 15 seconds of opening the door in order to switchoff the alarm. The alarm will be set off if the ignition is not switched on within15 seconds."
- Is there a way of disabling the alarm for sure. The Manual says:
And it uses bold in the manual where I have done. However I don't understanding this statement asit seems to contradict itself and generally I'm just not sure even when I try it if the alarm is off. Also googling it seems to give contradictory information.
2. Is it going to be easy to fix the actual problem if the boot sensor thinking the boot is open
Also about a fewdays before this fault I should also add that my rear windscreen wiper goes offrandomly and does not reset in the proper reset position. It will just stophalfway through.
In Sept 2012 (about 5 months ago) Audi did repair the rear washer pipe as the rear jet did notwork. Maybe other damage has occurred as a result.
I welcome any input on this. Thanks
