      Hey guys, for some reason none of my windows will go up or down when pressing the buttons on the doors. They will go up and down when you hold the key in the door to the lock position or unlock position. My sunroof won't do anything at all, and my trunk won't open using the button on the door. I have check all the fuses related to the comfort control module. I'm not sure how to check fuse C though, its a closed fuse.

      When it was at the mechanics for some other work they said that they couldn't comunicate with the comfort control module. Does this mean that she is done? And I should buy a new one?


      Thanks in advance for anyone who knows anything about this!!

      Jason

      My windows started going up and down on their own. I came out to my car one day and the windows were half way down. They wouldn't work at all. Next day I came out to my car and the windows were all the way up. They seemed to have a mind of their own. On my first visit to VW they said my window motors were burned out and I needed new ones. I knew this wasn't the case because of their funky behavior and there's no way two motors are going to burn out at the same time. I hade explained to the mechanic that I was getting large amounts of water in the frame from the sunroof when it rained (just received a recall for this issue). He seemed to think the water was getting to a relay switch which was causing the windows to go up and down on their own. just today i was told by VW that it's the Comfort Control Module that needs replacing. They say it's totally unrelated to the leaking roof issue. Is this true? Repair costs for a new Comfort Control Module is $700.00 !!!!!

      Hey...If I were you I would have them check the seal around the fresh air intake and the chamber plenum that goes from the engine bay to the interior on the drivers side. When I first got my car I thought it was the sunroof aswell. But after a few years of watching where the water was coming from I found that my gasket to these items were leaking. But a little gasket sealant around them and wa la. No more leaks.

      So I just realized today that there aren't any lights in any of the doors for the window switches. Also, the alarm is all messed up, and when i take the key out of the ignition the interior lights don't come on. Guess simce no VW tech savoy people on here know whats up I will buy a new ccm and see if that works. Thanks once again vortex.

      Check your comfort control fuse, this happened to me when I relocated the battery. THe fuse is in the regular fuse panel on the left side of the driver. I don't remember what number it is but it's a red 15amp fuse just check them and replace the blown one and then everything should be fine.
      Drive it like you stole it!!!

      Thank you sir. I have looked at every fuse associated with the car. None are blown. Its a strange circumstance.

      Have you tried scanning the car with a Vag-com. When you check the car for codes, it talks to all of the modules. If it was unable to talk to the CCM, I would say that it is probably dead. I think I would hit some junkyards, and look for a used, guaranteed module at this point.

      Yeah, I did a scan and it wasn't able to communicate with the windows, or sunroof, or door locks. I was able to communicate with the radio and such though. Its strange that some of the things work and some don't. I have my trunk release and gas release that all work. IDK...frustrating and annoying

      same issue, only i'm popping fuse 14 like crazy. the second a new fuse goes in it pops. So there must be a short somewhere but i've disconnected the sunroof controls and doors so i'm thinking it's somewhere closer to the battery that's shorting out. Is there a wiring diagram of where the wires for the central locking and interior lights go?

      My 1995 Audi developed the same problem intermittently and it turned out to be the ignition switch. The problem manifested itself as kind of not knowing it was switched on. So sometimes my windows, sunroof, etc. would not work and I would remove key and they would work again. It was hard to detect in the key turning before the fix but then was much smoother after the fix.

      Just a thought.

      Thank you. I was thinking that it could be something of the sort. When doing my engine swap i had to change the instrument cluster and I believe that isn't communicating effectivly with the ccm. Thats the only thing that I can think of. If it isnt that then my ccm is gone, but I don't understand as to why it would just all of a sudden not work after the swap.

      On my 2006 MKV Jetta (appears you have a MKIV) however my main wiring harness to the door a few cables had stretched and broke. If you open the door wide and pop that rubber boot off that is connected to the body in between door and A pillar there will be a harness, pull back the rubber boot as far as possible and inspect for broken cables. Mine the main powercable and another smaller wire had broke. On the MKV it was about a 2.5 hour job. I popped the door skin off and the internal door covers. Purchased a replacment wiring harness and replaced the whole thing. You could probably splice the cables however didn't want to mess with it again...

      BTW if you do find out it is the harness, give VW your VIN and they will get you the correct version of the harness as there are multiple ver based on options.

      Let me know if you need more details...

      Hey there,

      So I think I have a similar issue on this and I'm wondering what ended up being the problem and how you got it fixed.

      I was trying to replace a brake light and when done the windows would not roll up or down, the sunroof would not close (had to close it manually), and the overhead lights do not work.

      Can someone (perhaps Kx125rider572 ) please shed some light (no pun intended) on this for me as I'm a little bummed out.

      Thanks,

      CBass

      Every electrical component has to start from the fuse box. If it has power from the fuse, then look further through it's route and find the break from the component back to the fuse.

      I'm having this issue as well in my 2005.5 Jetta. Can't get any window to roll up or down. Anyone have any further input here? I'm beginning to suspect it my be my Comfort Control Module causing the problem...

      Help!
