Here we go...

Can shed some light on this before I take my car apart again!

Over the weekend, I re-trimmed my car. I took out the grey headliner and all other associated trim - A, B & D pillar trim etc. I changed it to black. I disconnected the battery due to working close to the curtain airbags. I also disconnected the interior lights in the front & back in order to get them out.

After the re-trim was done, I put the car back together and noticed that the interior lights didn't work (though they light up at night when headlights are on) and though it was something simple, but then the alarm didn't chirp when I locked the car and the driver's door LED stayed on for 10sec or so.

Also, my heated rear window has always been a bit hit and miss and I noticed when the trim was off the bolt with wires going into the window on the driver's side was very loose, so I tightened it up. Now, then I press the rear window switch the yellow light comes on but then it turns itself off in about 2 seconds.

I plugged it into VCDS last night and here's the fault codes it came up with...

I've obviously knocked some wire out when putting the trim back on, has anyone got any ideas with this before I take the car apart again?

I would say check and replace all fuses,i know it sounds silly but they dont always blow so sometimes the power flowing through remaining isnt enough,it used to happen a lot with mk4 golfs ie interior light,windows,radio,key fobs and many other strange things not working,it happened with mine when some tool wired a hands free kit to front of the roof lining that rubbed through interior lamp metal base or maybe some problem with wiring with interior sensors but cant remember where they are is it B pillar or on the interior lamp housing

Thanks for replying Phil, I've been tearing my hair out (what's left of it!)

The interior monitoring is all in the front interior lamp housing.

Where should I be checking fuses? Just in the box behind the light switch? (Sorry, I'm ok with mechanical stuff, but like a 10year old when it comes to anything electrical!)

IT WAS A FUSE! 15A, number 38 I think!

Bloody typical me, forgetting to check something like that!

All I have to sort is the rear demister. When the trim was off I found a v loose earth so tightened it up, after that, the rear demist turns itself straight off. Guy on another forum says it's because I have a B7 climate unit in (as the B6 one's buttons wore off!) and I can fix it with a 30A relay... here's hoping!

Thanks for your help!

Yeah you did, I didn't even think of the fuses, what an obvious thing!

Couldn't see the wood for the trees it appears!
