Default Skoda Octavia vRS - Power window issues

Hey Guys,

All of my power windows recently stopped working along with central locking.

The Driver's Power Window was malfunctioning, but the rest were working.
I replaced the Power Window module, but now the other windows and central locking aren't working at all.

Do i need to reconfigure the car [coding] to the new module?

I seriously doubt all the other modules just happened to fail at this time.

Regards,
Sprucegoose

The service station should be able to rectify this, since this is a purely electrical issue (related to BCM) I'd suggest first to get the on board system scanned and see what problems are displayed on the scanner. That will give a good idea on what has to be done.

Possibilities could be something related to the convenience module, or relays or a simple fuse that would need either cleaning or replacement. This maybe related to the module that you got fixed as there's no chance that all windows will fail mechanically at the same time. Seems like jammed up electronics this time. Take it to the station and get it scanned, those would be the ideal first steps as replacing the p/w module hasn't worked.

The module sits in the drivers door, quite possible that dampness or moisture is causing this to malfunction.

I sense only two possibilities. Coding issue or battery condition. I wish i can help you with the VCDS. The service station will be able to fix coding issue in few minutes.

Usually when you swap a new module or the old module breaks an error code is generated and it may require a clearing of the error code.

And all these electrical signals that inturn turn into these modules/codes are controlled by voltage coming from these circuits at specific sensors. While replacing and rewiring even a taping instead of soldering can cause differential voltage that is not what the sensor is expecting to report as working.

Could be wiring, or coding or battery issues I made it to three now.

Thanks guys, my local mechanic has a scanner [G-scan]
Will Scan it and see.

Want to Avoid going to Authorised Skoda, as they are frighteningly expensive and i've heard horror stories about them.
