Default Wierd Door problem

So Last night Im at the drive through ATM, and i open my door to retrieve the capsule. But as i shut my door I hear a loud thud, Try it again THUD THUD THUD.

WTF. so i look and see if my door isnt lining up or something stupid. but it is aligned but the black metal piece which locks the door in place is already up. as if the car was locked. So i had to manually click that thing down. so that my door would shut.Then it was fine.

FF to this morning as im driving into work. about 20 mins into the journey, doing about 65mph, my window drops a little and the car starts beeping telling me my door is open.

after i get to work annoyed by the beeping. I opened and closed the door a buncha times. and even manually clicked the indoor latch.

Now my window doesnt drop when i open/shut the door, but sometimes it works the opposite. opens after i shut the door.

If anyone has some tips. I might go look at it during lunch. Is it worth going to the stealership for? since porsche/audi of rockville is down the street from my work.

Default Microswitch in the latch has most likely gone bad...>>

Unless you're handy, the easiest way is to replace the latch. About $120 and door dissasembly required..

Default Apparently not... It's in the FAQ - a good place for you to look in the future...

Default I bet...

the extra thudding killed the microswitch. That seems to be what killed mine as well.
