Hello, i am new and i am hoping to get some help with a problem(or several) on my vw eos 2006 tdi
It all started with something killing my battery.
I went to a local workshop and it turned out it was a module+motor from the left rear window and the column module(the one under the steering wheel). After a lot of searching and expenses i got a column module with the same exact code but from a vw jetta and a new module+motor from a wrecked eos.
After replacing them, the button that gets all the windows down/up doesnt work properly (the left rear window doesnt move from that button and the rest of the windows get only halfway down and i have to press again to get them down fully); i have a flashing yellow witness with a car getting the roof down and of course i cant get the top down.
Now the trunk got stuck and i cant open it. And there is a message that states: something that is concerning to the roof will be contiuned( i managed to translate it from german).
Any help to solve this would be apreciated.

You started assuming the EOS had the same electronic modules as other brands.:( A big mistake because other VAG car brands do not have a convertible roof (Except the Audi rag top) and it's like taking Apple parts and software then hoping they will work in a Microsoft computer! Have you ever opened an electronic module? - there's about as much bespoke complexity in it as an iphone? If you had, you would realise they are a lot more than a plastic box with a few connectors.

If you are not a vehicle specialist mechanic or computer expert, you should appreciate your limitations and wouldn't start trying to repair a computer unless you had been stupidly led by the internet or YouTube videos. What you have done has probably produced a concatenation of faults which can now only be resolved by a technically competent person with experience, diagnostics tools and the skills and training to use them. If you get your EOS fixed by a dealer, they will probably remove all your parts from suspect sources and replace them with known good parts corresponding to your VIN number. After a huge bill made worse by your DIY interference, you should get your car back working.

I think you should look for a competent VW EOS trained workshop technician, pay the money for repairs and learn not to dive in deep without knowing what you are doing? :(
