Hi 

I have successfully retrofitted folding door mirrors to my 2019 Audi A1 works perfect apart from the new switch. It's where everything works as it should but after fitting the new switch I did an Autoscan and it showed 2 faults on the driver's door and 1 on the passenger door.

Driver's door 

196665- switch for central locking - signal implausible B122 D 29(008)

196726-Motor for mirrors fold-in - open circuit B11F6 13 (008)

Passenger door

196665 - switch for central locking - signal implausible  B122 D 29 (008)

 

Before I fitted the switch I did an Autoscan and did not have any faults.

Any ideas.

Can't help with the code problem but I would appreciate your input as to how difficult a job it was, were all the parts OEM? and some rough idea of what the cost was. I've looked at changing mine on an A3 and decided it was outside my capability, there was a company offering to supply and install but the cost was prohibitive. Mike

Hi ekimj10 

The job was quite easy as long as you go slowly and checking what is already installed in your car. My car needed new door modules as my existing ones didn't have the electrics. If you need to replace your door modules, you need to get used ones from a car that has these new modules. In my car they were 5Q4 959 393 F for drivers and 5Q4 959 392 F for passenger and I sourced some from a crashed Audi A1 Japanese model which is RHD like mine and they are 5Q4 959 593 K drivers and 5Q4 959 592 K and they were about £80 for both. If you buy new ones from a dealer they would need to be parameterised from dealer or specialist.You can either buy new folding mirrors from a dealer or look for used ones again from the same model. I bought used ones which included glass and covers for about £280 for both. I then bought a new switch which included folding from a Audi dealer for £40 which was £400 all in, I was quoted £1050 from a specialist and like you I said no way am I paying that much. It does mean taking off both door cards to do all the work but as long as you take your time it is relatively straightforward. Then once you have done all that it is just the coding to do.

Brilliant response, thanks for your help, I think the £1050 price is somewhere close to what I was told. So for half that amount and a few hours it would be worth it, to me anyway with narrow garage doors! Mike

Hi ekimj10

Yes crazy prices, if you can do it yourself, the end result can give you a lot of satisfaction and for less than half the price. It did take me a while ( about 3 to 4 weeks) to source the parts that were correct for my car.
