Question about 2000 Audi A6
I pluged my scan tool into the DLC, and it says "operator error" (cannot communicate with computer). I checked all the fuses, and they're all good.
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

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.

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.
