1988 Audi Quattro 90 -WIndow Issues- NEED HELP

I have a 1988 audi quattro and the passenger side window stoped woprking, so I took out the hole driver side control block from the driver door, and was messing around trying to see if i could hot wire
it. well, something sparked, and then none of the windows or sunroof will work. I called an audi repair shop and they told me it should not be the relay box, but it is the circuit breaker that contols the windows that is located behind the kick panel that is located by the hood release. I can't find anything that looks like a circreaker down there and I am just trying to get a little help if any of you out there have any ideas, let me know.
THanks, Ted Galazen

If it is like the type 44s (5000s, 100s and 200s) from those years, The problem is probably in the wire harness that leads to the drivers door switches. Inside a rubber accordion in the door jam the wires filex and eventually break and short together.
Open kick panel to relieve tension on the wires and fix the broken ones. Solder is best with lengthened wires. Best is to get marine wires from a local boat shop because they have more strands for a given gage of wire and are much less prone to breakage.

Yea, I will try to look into that. My Audi is a 1988 quattro 90. I think I have found one of the relay boxes also though. It is always really hot, I may try to replace that. Thanks For the help. Ted

It sounds like the wires may be shorting out. Check the wiring harness between doors and posts. Probably a few wires breaking and touching each other there and I would suspect the driver's door area first!
