I have an intermittent problem with my 2009 A4 controller.

Customer Question

I have an intermittent problem with my 2009 A4 cabriolet. Sometimes the hood opens slightly and no further. Similarly, the rear compartment cover will only raise slightly when trying to close. In both cases the " top in operation" icon remains lit. Occasionally, it will operate after driving a short distance. Any ideas, please?

My local mechanic has run a diagnostic test which has identified a fault code no. 01997 - something to do with an intermittent open circuit in the "top locking motor". Enquiries have been made with Audi who have proved to be unhelpful.
