Default Audi A3 2010 Issues with power down passenger side of car

Hi everyone, new to the forum as a registered member but been reading the forum on and off for years, nice to make my first post....

Can anyone shed some light on an issue I have with my Audi A3 2010 Sportback, I seem to have no power going down the passenger side of the car. The central locking does not work and neither do the electric windows or the wing mirror motor and none of the switches light up. The drivers side electrics all work apart from the petrol cap lock mechanism and also the rear wiper motor seems to kick in and not move upon ignition and then seems to have no power, not sure if these last two are related....anyway. I popped into a local motor electrics back street garage and left the car to be looked at, he checked all the wiring in the looms and said all was ok and not getting any shorts e.t.c and wires are all intact. He seemed to think it was the passenger front door module at fault and would get me the part number to order a new module, he seems to have lost the part number that he wrote down

I am going to attempt to remove the door card tomorrow and have a look at the module and try and do it myself, I just want to clarify some things myself though, if the front door passenger module is faulty would this then cause the rear doors/windows/power not work. The guy at garage said upon taking the door card off the connectors going to the module were disconnected (yes I bought the car like this without knowing) and when he connected them to the module all the central locking started going crazy across all doors (unlocking then locking) to which he believes that the module is shorting the rest of the electrics out..??

Does the wiring run through the front door module into the rear, I just want to get a bit more idea as to what can cause this, I have a list of the codes reported from the diagnostics on a print out, I will attempt to attach the jpg image.

I just want to know where I am going to go with this before I start pulling things apart and going deep down the rabbit hole. Appreciate any ideas, thanks in advanced.

P.S Looking at the list of faults that reported back, it's the permanent ones that are the major issues here. Not sure why I have intermittent issues. The loss of communication with the HVAC I believe happened once, I went to start the car and everything went dead, the cluster, the radio, the lot ! I have been using the car a fair bit since this happened and has not happened again. The guy at garage did re do all the wires in the loom. I really don't know if that could happen from a short elsewhere in the car, I guess it could ?? Anyways I just need to get my central locking working and the windows at moment , thanks again.
