Hi All,
Having a issue with the remote fob on my new 2018 S4. I think i pressed it too many times whilst locking and now i am no longer able to open the Boot lid (Saloon) or open the windows long press

I just see a flashing Red light on the remote fob. Any ideas how to reset this ?

Thank you

It could be that the auto up/down isn’t functioning on a window, it happened to mine the other day. Just find which window won’t go up or down all the way with a single click of the relevant window switch.

Roll it all the way down and then all the way up without clicking the button far enough to activate the one touch function. When it gets to the top continue to hold the button up for five seconds then release. That should reset it and everything should work again.

If that’s the issue.

Check the mmi settings, car, vehicle settings, central locking...

It’s possible if you picked up the second fob as they store the settings and it might not have been activated for that one?

But if it’s the same fob and you haven’t changed anything then I’d lean towards the one touch not working on a window.

the passenger window behind the driver is not working with one touch. I followed your instructions but it does not make a difference

this has been working fine for the last 2 weeks since I got the car

Try going all the way down and hold and then all the way up and hold then. I’m willing to bet that’s all it is if one window isn’t working on the one touch.

As the remote boot release also stopped working at the same time it is worth checking the mmi settings...

Got it working finally, i went to the actual window switch behind driver which was not working and manually closed and opened. Then locked the car and did the remote window unlock, all back to normal

Thank you all for your help :icon thumright:

So the remote boot release works now?

yes both boot release and Windows working now
Whenever my one touch windows have stopped working it has never affected the boot release so it is puzzling why it would have effected yours...
