Q: Is the wiring in my door ruined?

asked by on

Everything electrical within the driver’s side door of my 2006 Volkswagen Jetta has completely stopped working, including the lock and window. My car has around 90,000 miles on it and is in the cold a lot. I'm not sure if it could be a factor, but my car was always glitchier in the cold before it failed completely. How big of a repair is this?
