The easiest way is to call a locksmith and have them come out and pull it otherwise you risk tearing up the column.they charge about 60.00 and will even put in a new ignitin switch for you if you ask themto.

Headlights, fog lights, heater blower, wipers, temp reading in dash and gear indicator all not working. they all stoped working at same time. any help?


Sounds like your ignition switch shorted out - all of those functions only work with the ignition on. I'm betting your parking lights still work right? Change the ignition switch and I think you'll be set.

I have a 96 audi a6 and the key is now stuck in the ignition. Car starts and runs but the key will not come out. Just happened out of the blue...


I would try WD-40, spraying down beside the key with a spray nozzle on the end before I took it to a repair shop or pulled the steering wheel.

Ignition switch


1. Disconnect battery.
2. Remove airbag, two hex/torx/or philips head screws in the back of the bag holding it in.
3. Remove wheel. 24mm socket required for this. This is expose the clock spring area. Inspect that.
4. Remove top steering column cover. Two philips screws holding in under the bottom cover. Top cover comes off. The wiring for the horn is in there as well.
5. Remove instrument cluster. Two screws holding that in. Have a flat head handy as well to aid in unplugging the connectors for the cluster.
6. You will see the ignition switch to your right and the harness. Put key in ignition, remove harness, just unplugs. How there will be two small screws holding in the switch. Often, if the switch has never been replaced, they will be covered by a red paint. Take a small philips screw driver and loosen the two screws, no need to remove em. Ignition switch should just slide out.
7. Have new switch handy. No more than $40 even from dealer. Slide switch in. Its good to remember the way the old one came out. Screw down switch, plug in harness.
8. Install the cluster, column cover, and wheel in reverse order from above.

Starter switch. Plastic and cheap, my 98 A6 did the same thing... I replaced thousands in parts, turned out to be a cracked ignition switch which is a very common Audi problem!
