2007 S8 passenger door soft close feature dead
The close assist feature stopped working. The motor is silent, so I donít think it is a broken cable issue.
Service records from the previous owner showed the dealer had replaced the driverís side a number of years ago .It mentioned doing a VAS5051 scan that showed the motor working properly but the micro switch was not reading.
Using my VagCom I could not find any fault codes nor any output tests for the motor or micro switch. I would like to know what I need to replace and order the parts before I tear apart the door.
Any experience in diagnosing the failure mode?
