1995 audi a6 fuel pump problem

The pump will not stop running unless I disconnect the battery. The fuel keeps returning to the tank and their seems to be no laboring of the pump unless I pinch the flexable line. The engine runs fine and the car is driveable with no decernable problem. I'm stumped. THanks for any sugestions.

Sounds like a faulty fuel pump relay. The relay is located behind the fuse box at the end of the dash. remove relays one at a time until pump stops. Replace with new and see if that cures it.

2001 Audi A6 2.7T...Ran it out of gas. Now wont start. At first could hear fuel pump run for couple seconds with key in on position. Now fuel pump will only run when cranking. With key in on position...


It's very likely that you burnt out the fuel pump. The fuel pump needs gas running through it to keep it cool. If there was no gas and it's pumping air they tend to burn out very easily.

I have an Audi A4 1995 automatic and is not starting,fuel half tank,battery new,its just cut off the engine when l stopped by the robbot please help?


Fuel in the tank doesn't mean fuel in the engine. Have the fuel pressure tested, maybe the fuel pump in the gas tank failed, the age of the car would make it a prime target for failure.

have you tried replacing the Fuel filter, your pump wont cut back in if there is pressure at the pump, the filter on my A8 is just under the rear Right hand sill in front of wheel arch, it has a plastic/fibre cover hiding it, otherwise just follow the fuel line from the pump ,otherwise it may be the fuel pump relay heating up and breaking contact, try to have a diagnostic done,my relays are under the passengers feet , if you intend keeping the car get yourself a workshop manual from bentley publishers, its worth gold in the long run , what does the A6 have normal coil ignition or a ignition coil for each plug, if so that may be your answer,a diagnostics check will tell you

How do you remove the fuel pump from fuel tank of an Audi A6 1800 please?


You can check in the trunk and remove the felt cover see if there is a round panel cover that you can remove to get to the tank. If your unlucky and have to remove the tank you will have to remove the tank. ut it is not to difficult to do, if you drive it till the gas is almost out you can remove the two bolts that hold the tank in place. Use wd-40 to spray on the bolts and also spray the hinges on the oppitse side of the straps. once the nuts are off drop the tank down. You will need to pull the screws off the tank filling tube so it will come down as well. drop the tank down far enough for you to get to the fuel tank sending unit. it will have philips screws holding it in place. Mark two spots with a felt tip pin, (Sharpe) white is better and mark two holes so you can line the it back up for the holes and the hoses. disconnect the fuel line and return line disconnect the battery of the car for safety then pull the wires off it can be a plug or it may have nuts on them. When you remove the nuts or screws out pull the pump out and you will have to angle the pump to get the float out. I recommend that you replace the pump and the sock on the end of the pump. Do not buy after market buy factory replacement only you only want to do this once. mark the new pump holes on the pump using the old pump as an example, will save a lot of time to get it to fit in and match and the lines will line up, tighten all screws up put the lines back on and the clamps and reinstall the tank in place. yo can use your knees to hold it in place till you get the clamps lined up and started. Screw the nuts down till tight and your set to go just hook up the battery again and your set to go.
SIde Note, Never let your car get below 1/4 of tank of fuel, the reason is gas is the coolant for the pump if it goes lower than that the pump will heat up and will burn out. Many people don't know this so I thought I would add this to your knowledge

Fuse box in a audi a6 1995


Fuses are located by the side of the dash board when you open the driver's door. The fuel pump fuse is situated in there.

Fuel pump won't stop running with igntion off


Find or listen for the relay that powers the pump & give it a rap with handle of a screwdriver when pump running & key off, or remove it. Look under dash in fuse panel & under hood.
