A4 Avant (B9): electric window issues


Recommended Posts

A couple of days ago I noticed my near-side rear window was down though I had locked the car so went to put it back up. It would not stay in the closed position after trying various methods. Obviously worrying as a security risk, plus raining! This happened last summer when temperatures were high and was fixed at my local Audi dealership - a system reset, I believe.

I called the dealership to ask for urgent help, but none forthcoming, wanted to keep the car for five days!!! 😖 Anyway, I contacted an independant Audi/VW specialist who told me what I could do to close the window which was to operate the switch one small step at a time until it reached the closed position and hold for a few seconds. It worked, 🤗 however not a permanent fix.

My car is booked for a regular service in a few days so have asked for this issue to be rectified whilst they have it, and hopefully not keep it for five days for what I am sure is a fairly straightforward reset.

Has anyone else ever experienced this problem? 🤔

Hi Steve Q,

It's the original battery, car 3 years & 3 months old.

Shouldn't be the battery then, I'd recommend a diagnostic check to see if any fault codes flag up.

Hi Steve,
Car was in for a regular service on 30th June and I'd mentioned the window problem.

All sorted with a reset of the switch. Probably only took a few minutes.
