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.

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
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.

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!
