My cars got a ghost
« on: January 19, 2015, 09:52:43 AM »
Only had this car a coupld of months and things are starting to appear like

When I stop the engine and take the key out sometimes the passenger front window opens all an its own (yes it is electric).

Sometimes after getting out of the car and trying to lock it using the remote the  flashers operate a few times. Also the car wont lock but if i start the engine again and then stop it its fine

The parking sensors dont always work

Anyone else had these issues. I wonder if its a wiring issue or if some brain somewhere in the car had got a headache

Possibly broken door wiring through the gaiters.
The parking sensor module is under the passenger seat make sure it's not wet under there (passenger footwell carpets) if there's no wetness scan the Park Assist with VCDS.
