    i have a 1998 Audi A3 1.6 sport

    after a stint on the drive and subsequent flat battery i have returned to find the following electrical gear not working

    Central Locking
    Stereo
    Electric windows
    Sunroof
    heater

    this is with the car running after a full battery charge

    i have checked all fuses & the three fuses in the box on top of the battery and they all seem fine

    i know this must be something fairly simple & could just do with pointing in the right direction

    thanks in advance

    could this possibly be due to a faulty relay ?

    if so where are they located ?

    You will have un-cleared fault codes in your system. Take a trip to your Audi dealer and get them to clear the codes.
