Hi all.....not posted in so long, cars been garaged pretty much and mods went quiet whilst other things happened.
Anyhow I’ve started using her again and noticed a few issues I’d appreciate any advice or help with.

Window Regulator. Mine just went after 12 years. Not bad. Ordered aftermarket part, fitted ok. Adjusted window no probs. Window however isn’t dropping when the door is opened. I’ve tried the up-let go of button-hold button for 3 or 10 seconds (as there is differing advice) but neither worked. Any options???

DRLs not coming on when unlock. Used to work, all set up on MMI. Tried toggling off/on, still not coming on. Suspect battery as car sat for so long. Got 3G google so no battery meter though. Any pointers?

if replacement battery, any suggestions on brands/retailers?

Park Assist. When park assist comes on one sensor on the front constantly beeps. Nothing there just a bad sensor I presume. Easy to change? Is there a local connection to each sensor or does the loom go back to a point for all 4 front sensors? Is this a bumper off job?

appreciate any support or advice. I do have vagcom but I haven’t used it a lot.

Lots of weird stuff happens when the battery is low.

If the battery has been low for a long time, it may be beyond rescue.

Walmart's brand of batteries have gotten consistently decent reviews. I've got one in my A5 and it's been flawless. Don't forget to battery vent.

I'd get a new battery, charge it to full with a battery charger, install it, and then clear all codes with VCDS.
