  • Audi Coupe Central locking issues. On 2 different cars.

    I require some help with the Audi Coupe central locking system, its dooming me, on 2 different cars !

    On the first car, will go mention it as the Red car, the central locking works sometimes. Didn't seem to find the reason that makes it work sometimes and other times not at all. no matter from which hub its open, it will not open all the time.

    On the second car, Silver to be exact. The central locking doesn't work from the Driver side but it works from passanger side. I don't know if it matters for future references, its a quattro.

    What could it be ? Pump ? Electrical ? Pure user error ? They were working just fine for a while and after a few months, they both failed, first on the red, not long after, on the silver one....

    Any advises would help me a lot !!

    On the silver car, I suggest, there’s a small microswitch in the door lock which you need to check, you can access the 3 pin connector if you remove the door card. The wire is grey or white.
    Test the switch with a multimeter while operating the lock with the key, it’s single pole two way, biased off.
    This fixed the drivers door problem on my car.
    The other car, maybe the pump, maybe the wiring loom to the pump under the carpet (my coupe had broken wires in this loom), maybe both microswitches?

      I get intermittent issues with mine which I’ve always assumed is related to the alarm but it could be microswitches or the wiring that runs under the doorstep trim. I have to remove the central locking fuse to reset the controller and it works fine again for months until it gets confused again, normally when I use the key rather than key fob to lock or unlock.
      It might be worth trying this to help diagnosis?
