Customer Question
My new beetle Master...

My new beetle Master window control module is not sending a signal to the passenger side. the Window, side mirror or puddle light does not work. All fuses and both door harness are fine. It is a used window motor from the junk yard on the passenger side. If I go to the passenger side it works fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

If I open the door. The puddle light on the door and the dome light comes on. But not the puddle light on the passenger side

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your New Beetle?

2000 Turbo

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

Please bare with me as I explain

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

My key will lock and unlock the drivers side only. he drivers side does not communicate with the passenger side. I replaced both regulators and the passenger motor

  1. I do need the vin # to get the factory information to assist.
  2. When you replaced the window motors did you make sure the part #'s are the same ?
  3. Do you have VAG COM scan tool?

Thanks

No, I just grabbed a motor from another VW thinking it would work. Could that be the issue why the Mirror, window, door lock and puddle/courtesy light don't work on that side from the Master switch? It works fine if I operate it from the passenger side.No I don't have a VAG COM Scan tool
VW Mechanic: Wolfgang, VW Master Technician replied 3 months ago

there is a very very good possibility that the wrong motor is used.

the original motor did it act the same way

please explain

thanks
