    I have the same problem. Audi a4 2002. car locks no problem. After a few hours the brake lights come on and run the battery down so the alarm goes off.At first i thought it was just an alarm problem but i looked out out the window one evening and spotted the brake lights on.Went out and locked then unlocked to no avail. pressed the brake pedal and they went out. Happens very occasionally but must be a fault somewhere.

What does the ABS light mean in an Audi A4 Quattro 2002, it comes on every other time I start the car. I even went to put brake fuild in it and the fuild looked like it was full.


This is the light for your anti lock brakes.This is the unit that allows you to stop without locking up your tires.This is a system of sensors,pumps and actuators.This light is telling you that there is a problem with your ABS system that needs to be inspected for proper operation.Most all of your brake shops have a computer that will diagnose the problem for you for a small fee.Your brakes will still work but I don't recommend putting it off.

Audi 96 a4 open and closes on it own


do you use keys or remote to lock it ??
do this anyway.. lock car with key and hold key over for 30secs.the windows may go down, then release and wait 30 secs ,then lock car with remote holding button down for 30 secs,this resets the central locking./alarm system.also check battery is fully charged as this will have an effect on all the above

05 audi a4 car running and doors have locked while cars is stopped with no one in car how do we open? no spare key


This happens in my A6 ALL THE TIME. I start my car with the Start button and step out (to brush off snow, etc) and-bang-my car auto-locks itself with the keys, phone, everything inside. So I am STUCK! Audi can't solve so they cut a custom key that unlocks the door but doesn't start the car and 'hid' it for me so I could at least recover from this DANGEROUS problem. Terrible that they cannot solve this.

The liner is held on by little plastic studs. It can be gently pried off Then you will have access to the lock. The lock should have a nut on it that holds it to the trunk. Turn nut counter-clockwise to remove.

Sounds like the sensor switch is bad - this is the switch that is pressed down when the trunk/boot is closed. If it's bad, it may not allow the light to turn on when you open the lid, and it also probably isn't telling the dash light that it's closed when it is, which would explain why your indicator light is on. Check to see if it has damaged wires on it, and if not, I'd replace it.
