A3 with Pulsing Interior lights ?

5 posts in this topic

HI Folks

Here's a good one..... The wife's 2002 1.9 Tdi A3 (8L) has started behaving badly.

When she stops the car and gets out the interior lamp fades out as normal but then fades back on again,

and then oscilates on and off,  She is unable to lock the car as ultimately the alarm  gets set off.

I hve scaned with VCSD but can see nothing wrong.

I have put a new battery into it as her original was quite old but it is still happening.

Any words of wisdom?

thanks

 

Mike :(

My guess would be Door Control Module. They are known to be problematic on the MK4 Golf so I would assume it's a similar part on the A3, although I've not heard of that symptom before.

Thanks Cuprabob,

Is there one in each door or is there just the one module ?

Any idea where it would be located ?

it does sound like a moisture around module problem....

 

Thanks

Thanks for that.... +++

Have just noticed that neither the bonnet or boot shows open on the DIS whereas each door does....

But have yet to observe the fault condition which triggers the interior light etc.....

 

Thanks again for the pointers.....
