2003 VW Beetle Convertible - is the key the problem?

Electronic door lock actuators fault. I have had them replaced three times but they fail again immediately. The window dose not do the final movement to seal under the hood when the door is closed. It also inadvertently shifts up and down when the key is detected and the engine is off. Could this actually be a problem with the key? Many thanks

Huh? Please explain this further. Also How far apart in time do the door actuators fail and how do they fail? And why did you mention this and then start on about the windows?

All the electronic circuits you’re referring to are controlled by the Comfort Control Module.
