Audi A6 quattro 1999 the ABS light is on and the Red Brake light is Blinking what does this mean usually.

That indicates that the ABS controller is having issues. The ABS controller is the metal box along the driver's side of the engine, just in front of the coolant overflow tank. The controller is the black box on top of it with the harness attached. You can buy a new one (expensive) or send yours to for a warrantied rebuild. They have a great reputation on the Audi forums I frequent, and you can drive the car while it's gone (you just won't have functioning ABS while it's gone).

I want to buy an Audi A6 and have two options: i- 2001 Audi A6 with 92,000 miles on it or ii- 1999 Audi A6 with 66,000 miles on it.. Which one would you recommend?

With the year difference only being two years apart I would go with the lower mileage vehicle.But remember that just because it's lower mileage doesn't mean it's in better shape mechanically.A quick trip to your trusted auto mechanic and a small charge of $25 per car can get you a prepurchase inspection, which will tell you any problems the vehicle might have, aka oil/fluid leaks, etc.I hope I could help.....get back to me with any questions

Break light and anti-brake comes on sometimes on My 1999 Audi A6

This is common in the audi cars. It may be that your ABS module is failing or the the connector to the ABS pump located in the engine compartment on the drivers side, with black metal lines going into it. Their is a large black connector that sometimes needs to be unplugged and cleaned and plugged back in

A problem in the ABS, you'll have to see a shop for that because they should have the proper scan tool to check the ABS (generic's can't cut it with the in depth modules).
