Question about 1996 Audi A6

1 Answer

I have a 96 audi a4 quattro

The car will be running fine and then it will just quit while driving down the road. All lights on dash light up, none stays on. Car quits, nothing works. If I wait a couple of seconds and start the car it will run. Also if sitting still at a light it has also when in neutral it will shut down. The weather has been very cold could this have anything to do with it? What different kinds of problems could this be?

Just a suggestion but my guess would be the engine control module. Usually when they heat up, the engine shuts down and when they cool off it works again, until it heats up again, then poof. I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes.

No, they are not. THe A4 and the A6 chassis are different, the bumpers have a similar style and look to them, but they are not interchangable.

Whats wrong with audi a4 quattro when light on dash saying 1mph


Read your owners manual on how to set or clear your speed warning. There is nothing wrong with your car.
IIRC, the speed warning is zeroed by holding down the left instrument cluster button for more than one second when the vehicle is moving faster than 3mph. The icon will show with a diagonal bar through it indicating the speed warning is turned off.

Get a service manual, it will help you locate it. Usually they are under the hood or behind the glove box.

Have an audi a4 quattro 2005 convertible problem is 3rd brake light will stop working and than work again. i also get dash warning when it goes out. will replacing brake switch fix this. also 2nd issue...


The brake light issue isn't likely the the brake switch (since it sounds like your other brake lights are working properly). It's likely a bulb in the third brake light. When the filaments get old they sometimes lose and regain contact as the car vibrates on the road. Change the bilbs and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, look for a bad wire connection around the third brake light. Also, have someone verify the third brake light isn't working from the back of the car when you see the alert, it could be a bad sensor.

1997 Audi A4 Brake Vibration


the only thing i can think of as a problem would be brake pad quality. i would get some from the dealer and fit them. if there is chatter going on it can also be caused by low quality rotors or a bad maching job. have them inspected for integrity.

2002 audi a4 quattro... a yellow warning light came on the in-dash computer and the clown who sold the car to me didn't include owners manual... any clue what the warning light is and how can i see the...


You have to find someone who can hook up a diagnostic computer to your system. The code should tell them what system is giving you the problem, then you have to narrow it down from there. I have a mechanic friend who does this for me so I have a clue of the problem before I go to my Audi dealer. The engine warning light could be any number of things.

2000 Audi A4 quattro with abrupt gear shifting & low oil pressure


I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!
