    Hi guys, massive problem with my car,its doing my head in. Last night i went to lock my car and it wouldnt lock! i also noticed the whole drivers side door is not working! the electric windows arent working from that side, the electric mirrors wont work, the door wont lock electronicly, and the car wont alarm atall! when you use the fob to lock the car it locks every door but doesnt like the driver door and the hazard lights dont flash! ive checked fuses and they seem fine, its like the drivers side door has completely died! the buttons arent even illuminating on the door! Its asiff it has lost power completely to the door.

    Please can someone help!

    Cheers

    Try giving the wires that go between the post and door a wiggle to start with, if they're not plugged in properly this kinda thing happens, it's quite unusual for everthing in the same door to just die without doing anything elsewhere on the car

    My 20007 A3 sportback recently started having the exact same problem issue as the OP, except it is on my front passenger side door.

    I noticed that for an hour or so I had a buzzing noise coming from the door and the power window light was flickering on and off. If anyone has experienced this and/or knows what a common cause for this might be looking forward to hearing of their experiences and response.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like loose connections between the frame and door. Unplug clean and plug back in

    Will get the door card off tomorrow to check it out, hope that's all it ends up being.

    Ok looking at it now, can now see what you mean after pulling the rubber back, quite dark here so will check it with more light. Does it just unclip from the top ?

    Yes replacing the part fixed it, all back to normal. Sourced a part from a wrecked vehicle. Thanks.

    Hi guys. Sorry for necro-posting here but I'm having these issues on my 2004 a3 1.6 sport 8 valve. I tried googling that part number but it doesn't come up with anything. Can anyone tell me what part actually is that Sloth replaced? Thanks in advance guys
