Question about 2007 Audi Q7 4.2 FSI

1 Answer

My Audi q7 keeps struggling to pick up power

When I am driving even at 30 mph my cars ESP light comes on and I find it hard to get the car over 30mph it mostly happened when I was taking off and picking up speed then the car would struggle to get to 50. I could have my foot to the board and it wouldn't pick up speed. I would drive it maybe 40mph on the motorway until it cleared itself but always when this happens the ESP light flashes. I have turned it off and it seems to be better the ESP that is. Any ideas? Audi keep telling me they can't find any fault coming up its as though I'm making it up.

When a problem like this arises the very 1st thing that must be done is to have the electronics scanned for fault codes, this is the how the diagnosis of the problem is started, otherwise you are just guessing.

Esp driving


location not stated, or road conditions. nor if in 4low , nor if the ESP switch is off or on. Ask Suzuki for help (lol) or any ASE shop.

it's not magic, it can not give traction , if none.
on ice slow down. (esp can do that too. slow you,brake you and even
shift gears in the transmission)

are you in 4wd? or high 4Low, esp is inactive. (or limited)
read the operators guide. (if lost, get one now)
read the page on driving on ice.
chapters 5,6,7.
have you had any off these conditions , related to ESP, this a
is the ESP light acting wrong, or CEL check engine light running?
are all dash lamps (warning) showing correctly per the opr. guide?
ESP & ABS are vary complex, (not magic)


quote from the servise manual. (car battery dead or disconnected?)
ESP control module
When ESP control module is removed / installed, do
not use impact wrenches which generate shock or
impact to avoid damaging sensors in ESP control
module.
Note that Calibrate word here..!
When any of the following operation is done, calibrate
steering angle sensor, G sensor and master cylinder
pressure sensor (in ESP control module) referring to
"Sensor Calibration in Section 4F
- When battery or dome fuse is removed. (
a low battery or weak)
- When steering angle sensor is replaced.
- When ESP control module is removed.
- When yaw rate / G sensor assembly is removed.



read this, it covers this system well,

http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_esp.htm

read page 7-2 here (the do not drive words)
http://www.autodealertools.com/quickQuote/manuals/2007/Grand%20Vitara.pdf

this car has no center differential. (read limits there of)
are you using chains on the tires?
oper guide page 4-6 , read that yet?

If the vehicle speed is greater thanapproximately 30 km/h (19 mph), the ESP systems (other than ABS) will turn
on automatically and the light will go out.
When the transfer switch (if equipped) is
turned to the "4L LOCK" position, the

ESP systems (other than ABS) will be canceled automatically. The light will come on and stay on.
• If the ESP systems operate continu-ously such as when driving on slippery roads, the traction control functions of the ESP systems may be canceled temporarily to avoid overheating the brake pads, and the light will come on. After a short period of time, the ESP.

(this latter cut out happens, with wild driving)

Your automatic park brake system has failed, and it is probably permanently engaged.
The issue with smart German, non smart engineering I'm afraid.
Don't keep driving the car. You need to return it to the manufacturer.

TCC Solenoid


In the valve body of the transmission, This can be check by its PWM (pulse width modulation) The wire connection is a seven pin connector at upper front of trans case. What you are describing does not seem to be a TCC problem. The TCC comes on at above 50 MPH. Drive at above 50 MPH step on the brake pedal not to stop the vehicle, just slightly,.enough to turn off the TCC. See if it make a difference then do it going toward 30MPH.

2010 audi q7 shows on the board service 700km 30 days. what does it mean? what service is it?


It's the normal car service reminder due. Whichever will be reached first: 700 km, or 30 days. In other words after 700 km, or if you don't drive the car 700 km within 30 days, you should carry out the car maintenace: engine oil & oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, pollen & dust cabin filter, ...
Then you will need to reset the "Service due" message on the dashboard. For Audi Q7 made year 2010, the Service Interval Indicator can only be reset with the VAS 5051 or similar diagnostic tool connected to the data link connector of the car.

When driving my Audi A4 it seems to lose power and the ESP light comes on? What does this mean?


The ESP light refers to your car's traction control. The loss of power you feel is the car throttling back in an attempt to regain normal traction conditions. This is by design but if you car is flashing ESP under normal driving conditions, you most likely have an ESP sensor problem and should have it checked at the dealer.
