Question about 2000 Audi A6
I am trying to solve a electrical problem on my A6 which started occuring this winter.
When I start the car first thing in the morning, all the gauges in the dashboard and all the lights (not only the dashbord, but also the lights on my climate control, my stereo system ...) go off for a moment, and then go on again. This situation repeats every few seconds and lasts until the temperature in the car increases. Also, on the dashboard display I can see the temperature and it says that the outside temperature is +37.0 degrees, although the outside temperature is below 0 degrees. This problem also disappeares when the inside temperature rises.
So, I have two problems and they have one incommon thing. Inside temperature :)
I would appreciate any suggestion or a idea, not to mention an answer that can solve my problem
Thank you in advance
Sounds like a faulty outside temp sensor. This is located behind the lower front grill on the rad support. This sensor is likely causing your both issues as the voltage drop or resistance is not in the range the ecu expects. You can check http://forums.fourtitude.com/zeromain they will help to clairfy swapping the sesnor if you feel like getting your hands dirty.
