I have similar problems. Have checked to see if your gas and trunk button are working along with the central locking button in the center console? Let me know. Steve

There is a simple fix to your automatic up-down window problem. I found this out when I had my instrument cluster replaced, and they forgot to re-program the windows. Just call your dealer's service department, and they will tell you the sequence of raising and lowering your window to reset the automatic up down feature. It worked for me.

Anyone know if there is a fuse or reply for the passenger window not to operate.

No, but if you find out, or had it fixed could you please let me know what it was?

After carefully scrutinizing which would be the sportiest and unique car to buy for 25grand, I purchased a '02 225hp quattro TT coupe. The vehicle is Cert-pre-owned with a 3 year extended warranty (6 months still remain on the orig. fact warranty) I absolutely went crazy for the car's looks, performance, and quality of the materials and interior design. It is the coolest car I've ever owned. Shortly thereafter it became an incredible source of frustration for me. Before taking delivery of the car, I made sure Rusnak Audi of Pasadena, CA replaced the tires with name brand tires of the proper size. The tires were slightly too thin and too tall. The turn-signal and interior light switch were repaired as well. After driving the car for a couple days it felt totally unstable. Turns out, after 3 trips to the dealer that the rear suspension bushings had been working their way out of their housings causing extreme neg. camber at the rear. It was fixed under warranty after 4 days at the dealer with a terrible rental car. The windows started to get a mind of their own and would roll down 1 second after I hit the fancy "1-touch" up switch. The other window simply wouldn't roll all the way up. Until finally, it randomly decided to. The dealer couldn't duplicate the problem. The car, then began to overheat. Oh yeah, did I tell you that it only had 30,000 miles on it? Took it to the dealer again, got a PT cruiser rental car and they replaced the temp sensor and electric fan. They told me the windows were dirty from the smog in the air which caused their erratic behavior. I didn't accept this answer, but couldn't duplicate the problem in front of them. Two days later, the windows are still wacky and the temp guage started climbing again while gently driving in 68 degree weather. Lots of squeaks and rattles, there's a loose screw rolling around inside of the plastic E-brake housing. Both parking lamp bulbs have been replaced and one of the lamp sockets appearently melted. I swear the clutch is starting to feel like it takes up differently from time to time. I'm getting rid of it after 5 months. It still looks really cool and breaks my heart that the design is so appealing but I can't have that without the headaches of crazy problems. I'm getting a lexus IS300. It's really boring looking but has a reputation for reliability.

The windows in my TT roll down (by themselves) occasionally after the car is stopped and locked. It's maddening and my dealer says he has never heard of this happening. (Luckily I have witnesses!) I live in Palm Desert, I really think it has something to do with the extraordinary heat here.

The dealer may not, but i have. I have a 2005 TT roadster and everytime its even the slightest bit damp outside i cant get the drivers side window to "auto up", it stops about half way and rolls back down. After a visit to the dealer to fix that issue(and it was corrected after 2 trips), i noticed that while driving, if i hit a bump or a pothole, the passenger window "autos down" by itself. Getting aggrivated with the dealer telling me i was crazy, i traced the power window module wires. Come to find out that the drivers side external key cylinder leads had become crimped by the window regulator in the drivers door, causing the window down relays to trigger. Thus, the doors remained locked, but the windows roll down at, what appeared to be, random. You may want to check the drivers door harnesses and the internal door wiring, sounds very similar to the problem i was having. Hope this helps.

I live in Iowa and am having the same problem this summer. On really hot days, the windows just go down. I actually sat and watched it happen one day. I shut off the engine and locked the doors and in about 5 minutes, the locks started to click and then the windows just went down. It will also happen if you do not lock the doors. I have a 2001 TT with 54,000 miles purchased in October 2005.
Did you ever find a solution to the problem.

Hey, my family lives in Des Moines. (I live in Palm Desert now.) I'm just living with it. I'll take it to the dealership when I have more $$$. Steve
