Hi
It's on the trunk on the left side under a hatch.
It should be a 100 ah battery.

SOURCE: 1997 Audi A8 Will not start after disconnecting battery

You may have a DBW (drive by wire) car. If so, reconnect the battery and then turn the key on (don't start the car though). Do this with the hood open. Turn the key and then see if you have a high-pitched whining hum from the engine bay. If so, that's likely the throttle body readjusting its position. This can make a big difference in driveability, and is worth a shot. If the 97 didn't have DBW, you won't harm anything in trying it out.

SOURCE: water leaking in my audi a8

There should be a drain hole or tube that leads out of the car. Find it and clean it out. (wet/dry shop vac?)
Don't poke too sharp of things into it, or you might damage something, though.

SOURCE: where's the positive terminal on

If you look at the engine area you will see the postive jump point, let me see if i can locate a picture of this location.heres a diagram of the engine compartment, theres a fuse /relay box in the left rear, this is if you are standing in the front of the car looking in engine compartment, look for a terminal to connect the postive cable and ground the other to metal in the engine compartment, this is only to be used to acess the truck to get to battery, also look around the engine most times theres a postive hook up sometimes neear or on motor,good day,johnjohn2_115.gif

I have an Audi A8 I lost the original key but I have the valet key, my battery is dead and I can't open my trunk to charge it. A mother thing the dealer said that their is a under the hood post I can't not...


The big wire to the starter goes to the post he mentioned, that's the starter relay. The big wire from the relay goes directly to the battery. Connect positive to the post, and negative to a good clean ground.

Were is my fuse box for my radio speakers on my 97 audi a8


Well there is a fuse panel above the battery compartment (left rear of trunk) that removes with a finger twistable lever. In that compartment are some spade fuses and one maxi fuse. I DONT know if they are for the stereo speakers or not.

The glove box on my 1997 Audi A8 won't open.


Behind the glovebox there is a short length of cable that you pull down to release the door manually, you have to really feel around for it but it is there.
