    Hi,

    I have had an odd problem with my A4 2004 B7 since I got it a few weeks ago.

    All doors lock fine with central locking, but the rear left door won't open unless you open it from inside the car. Once it's opened once from inside, it will open from the outside OK.

    I have the following fault code:-

    Address 46: Central Conv. Labels: 8E0-959-433-MAX.lbl
    Part No: 8E0 959 433 BM

    1 Fault Found
    01561 - Left Rear Door
    59-10 - Can't Unlock - Intermittent

    I've visually inspected the wiring going into the the door module, and it appears fine, although I haven't tried a continuity test.

    There is a replacement module available on ebay:-
    AUDI A4 LEFT REAR WINDOW REGULATOR MOTOR 8E0 959 801 A | eBay UK

    Anyone had a similar issue?

    Thanks in advance

    Cheers, Lee

    The Ross-Tech wiki shows this:-

    01561 - Rear Left Door: Can't Unlock

    Possible Causes

    • Wiring/Connector from/to Central Locking Actuator: Rear Left Door (F132) faulty
    • Central Locking Actuator: Rear Left Door (F132) faulty
    Possible Solutions

    • Check Wiring/Connector from/to Central Locking Actuator: Rear Left Door (F132)
    • Check Central Locking Actuator: Rear Left Door (F132)
      • See Measuring Blocks OR perform Output Test
    Where is the Central Locking Actuator ?

    Found a cable going from the window motor to the door lock. If I remove the cabling, this stops the door lock from working.

    I'm guessing that it's either this cable or the locking actuator.

    I've also noticed that when locking/unlocking the passenger rear door I get an extra click, that is not there for the other three.

    Can anyone offer any help/advice?

    Cheers, Lee
