Customer Question
Hi. I have a...

Hi. I have a 04 Coninental GT. My battery was dead and I am charging it up now. My problem is that the drivers door is not opening. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

Yes, we tested it. It is now at 50% power and the door still wont open

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GT yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, i am not. My car has been on a paint job and the guys left the lights on this weekend...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just a question. I live i Norway, is this a free service or how do I pay for this?

Mechanic's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Okay, but it might be better for me to talk to someone local

  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

The electrics battery must be fully charged . you may have to disconnect the battery and then reconnect.

note the electrics battery 8-10 times once discharged it will need to be replaced because its an AGM battery. I would replace with a new one to eliminate issues down the road then use VAG COM to reset the windows and seats and clear codes . the codes if not cleared will do some real goofy things and operations!!

anything else?

if not.....

I try to be online 365 days a year.
