Problem with central locking on A6

Hi there
I have a slightly wierd problem with my 2001 A6 2.5TDI saloon
I went to open it with key fob and did one click for the driver door then two to open the passenger doors as normal.
It did this ok and then it started opening all the windows on its own 1 inch at a time, similar to as if the key fob button was kept pressed down but the windows go down in one smooth motion, this was jolty and stop\start motion until all windows opened.
I went and got my spare fob and the same thing happened again. Also the doors locks keep clicking open as if they are being opened with continuos button pressing of the fob. I managed to lock the car evetually with a bit of trouble but am worried in case it happens again and the windows open and sods law it will fill up with rain or car thieves.!!!!!
Anybody have any ideas where io should start looking. Not very car technical so english explanations would be ideal !
Any help or advice much appreciated.
Thanks in Anticipation

Did you have both key fobs with you after you got your spare?
If so you may have had a stuck contact in the first one that was still stuck when you got the other one and the first one continued to cause the problem.
Other than that, if the battery in the car is low it can cause unusual things.
Beyond that you will need to check with the Audi dealer or a good Audi independent with the software to pull the error codes.

I completely hid the first fob in case it was still transmitting on the other side of the house

TonyJ made a good observation which I completely missed, doh.
Anyway, there are "known" issues regarding windows opening of their own accord. The problem seems to stem from the "Convenience Module". Again, as TonyJ rightly states, you will need to get the error codes; either from (most expensive to least expensive ;-) ) a main Audi (or any VAG, such as VW, Seat, Skoda) stealer, or an inde VAG specialist, or any reputable inde workshop (ideally a Bosch approved garage), or finally any one with VAG-COM on a laptop.
Garages who use "generic" fault code readers, such as Snap-On, or Sykes-Pickavant, will only be able to read and clear the fault codes; whereas the VAG specific ones, including VAG-COM will be able to re-adapt any errant settings in any of the modules.

I dont know is this the same problem. But, My four year old A6 was all window opened this morning. And yesterday I'm sure there were clossed. Today I've made testing with remote door controller. Continuously just shortly press, open, close, open, and so on. Suddenly, all windows went down!. Without long pressing open-button. Has anybody notice the same function?

Yes, it is the same problem. That was one of the symptoms that I saw. In fact,that was how I first found out by coming to my car and seeing the windows part way down.

Disable the "total closure" option.

It's nothing to do with "total closure" - but, like I said in an earlier post, the "Convenience Module". VAG-COM, or a stealer VAS5052 are your only friends in this instance.

I had exactly the same thing happen on a 98 A6. The Audi dealer fixed it by replacing the locking control module. About $750 parts and labor.

I had exactly this problem two weeks ago, and fixed it by replacing the door lock mechanism in the driver's door. Takes about half-an-hour to replace, not including the 15 minutes spent swearing as you skin your knuckles whilst trying to reattach fiddly bits inside the door. The part number (at least here in the UK) is 4B2837016G, and a UK dealer will want 97.53 + VAT from you for it. If you still have the problem, let me know and I'll see if I can come up with some instructions on how to do the replacement.
