Customer Question
I have a 2003 audi...
I have a 2003 audi a4 1.8t and it recently had the issue where the wires in the drivers door came apart and touched each other so there is no power to any of the windows now or the mirrors even after fixing the wires. I've checked the fuses man and i can not find a single blown one...

If you give me a little bit I can get the fuse layouts for you. Also, do you have scan equipment capable of speaking with all modules on the car? The module responsible for all of these duties is the comfort module. It is located under the carpet where you put your feet, on the drivers side. I have seen them many times get wet from water leaks.

Looks like it might. Address word 046, comfort control module. Check for any codes in there, and we may look at some values too, if we can talk to it.

Ok. What really helps is that we have communication, so hopefully its not internally failed.
