There's no code to reset the computer. Go out, turn the key on, but don't start the engine. The throttle position sensor sets itself up, and if you have an ATQ engine, you have a drive-by-wire throttle setup as well. In that case, the throttle body itself will align itself when you do this (you'll hear a humming from the back center of the engine). When the humming stops, you can crank up the car. My 99 A4 takes awhile to relearn everything - I'm usually in for a week's worth of surging idle and occasional stalling when I reconnect the battery after working on it, so give it some time.

The computer on my 2006 Audi A6 just quit. All I get on the screen is

You mean the car stereo/nav system computer, correct? Not the car's ECU/computer?

You can reset by disconnecting the negative battery cable overnight BUT YOU"LL LIKELY LOSE YOUR RADIO SECURITY CODE and the ALARM WILL NEED RESET.

Look in the owner's manual about both items BEFORE you do anything w/the battery. To get the radio code you may need to take it to the dealer.
