Check terminal #16 (see diagram of connector) of the connector for 12 volt unswitched power, this is what powers the code reader or scan tool, if it is not hot you have a fuse issue somewhere. Did you check the under hood fuse box?

Check this site for any Audi codes. This is a problem with the air that it injected into the exhaust system to help burn any uncombusted fuel. Check the air pump located in front of the pass front wheel on the bottom of the engine. It is pretty easy to find. The air pump has a suction hose that goes to the air filter housing so that it has filtered (clean) air, follow the hose

SOURCE: The car was connected to jumper cables the wrong way

I'm surprised that you haven't had problems with a dead battery yet. Reversing the polarity at the battery not only doesn't do the battery much good but also will kill the alternator. I would have that checked.
The car's computer may have some internal protection against having the wrong polarity applied to its power inputs but the kind generally used is limited to short-term misapplication and probably failed in seconds, leaving the computer open to random damage.
This could prove to be an expensive repair to get the car back to being whole again.

SOURCE: Audi A6 Misfires

You may have a coil pack going bad. They're on the front top of the engine - you'll see them if you follow the spark plug wires back. Do you have any codes from having the engine scanned? If you can get it scanned (AutoZone will do it free), post the codes up and we'll see which cylinder(s) are misfiring. From there, you can swap coilpacks around and see whether the misfires follow the packs or stay in the original cylinders. If they move, you have a bad coil pack or two. If they don't, since you've already changed plugs and wires, I'd see about having the injectors diagnosed to see if any of them are failing.

SOURCE: how do i change time on clock on 2005 audi a6 quattro s line

I think I can help you. I just did this on mine yesterday because my clock runs a few minutes fast each month. It was somewhere bizarre - sorry I'm not near the car to be more clear. I think I picked Sound, Settings and for some odd reason, it was there, rather than in Car, Settings. NOOO - it was in Tuning - click the AM/FM button, then Settings. I've only had it for a few months, but you'd think I'd have that one figured out due to re-setting it.

I drive a 2000 audi quattro A6. my driver side door will not unlock from the key remote or with the key. when i try to unlock with the key it rolls all my windows down and unlock all other doors exept...


sounds like the hard wire attached to the key lock may be off or broken..this happens a lot when a car is "slim jimmed" or used a coat hanger to unlock the door.. or it could be from just normal wear.. the door panel will have to come off the door to be able to look inside and see what is happening.. simple, inexpensive fix for someone with a little mechanical ability

2000 Audi A4 Quattro Passenger Side Power Window...


Ok you have either one of two main problems with it.
1. does it go in one direction only then jams the other way?
Ans. the plastic clips that hold the window to the lifting rail can break.
these can be replaced by removing the door trim & replacing though you will need torx type tools.
2. As with vw golfs & passets the motors pack up or even the wire can break on some of them.
Ans. replace the motor unit in the door or the cable & rail.

3. It is heardly heard tell of but the only other problem is that one of the wires in the hinge area to the door has broken.

4. we have had this one a few times but this would also include the interior lights & central locking not working as well as the windows.
The central convenience unit under the passenger foot well can go wonky & needs to be replaced, usually caused by water coming in through the heaters air filter when the water is trapped in the front of the car ( caused by rotten leaves stuck in the drain points & also happens to the A6 models )
