    Done a forum search and couldnt anything, so.............

    Why wont my sr/windows open/close from the fob?
    It used do, but seems to please itself.

    Same with the one touch feature, I guess I probably have to click 5 times on a full moon, standing on one leg or something.....?


    Cheers gents

    There are a number of "comfort" settings in VAGCOM for opening\closure of doors, windows, sunroof, etc.

    There is a way to enable it with the key, but I can't remember what it is. No doubt somebody else will be along soon to tell you how to do it.

    Try holding the window switch up fully after you close the window this should reset the one touch system. The keyfob wont closes the windows unless one touch is reset.


    Failing that do a search on this forum 'reset windows' there seem to be lots of slightly different opinions on how to reset windows :search:

    I'm glad this was posted. Not for that fact that yours no longer work but for the fact that I didn't even know that my A3 was able to do this. I've only had the car for 6 months..

    I hope you get this sorted soon, but thanks for enlightening me.

    are you getting the timing right with the second button press? To open the windows I need to press the unlock key once then after 0.5 seconds and before 1 second (No, I've not timed it!) press and hold the unlock button again, opposite true for locking/closing....

    Is it possible to get the sunroof to close with the key fob? I was told this was not possible by my Audi dealer :huh: This is on a 2007 8P S3.

    You should be able to just lock the car and hold the button to close the windows. I don't think it requires a second press. I may be wrong, but that's not how I remember it working the last time I used it.

    Ditto

    I tried changing settings a while ago on VAG-COM but was never successful. Then again I'm no expert so if anyone managed this, please share:)

    Ive reset the windows back to `one touch` (thanks guys).

    But the fob closure isnt still inop?

    It definately used to work including the sunroof.

    Why do Audi give is so many flamin settings than can be configured through the normal controls?

    I just dont want all of that choice!! and comfort settings nonsense. Give us everything! and once its set (dealer/vagcom) then I want it idiot proof.

    For example, if you have an esr then why on earth would you NOT want it linked to the key fob closure?

    Sorry, rant over.

    Any ideas how to get the closure function back?


    cheers

    Mine closes my sunroof. It was already set from the factory though.

    There's a setting on VAG.COM to let you open the sunroof also but it doesn't work. Anyone managed to do this?
