A6 Car phone Problem

I bought the A6 1999 model recently and it comes standard with the Carphone. Problem is that I can't seem to get the phone to work. When in the craddle the phone comes on, shows a few icons and then goes to a blank screen with a single line in the top left corner of the screen. Now, I'm not sure if it requires some sort of code for it to work or not. Does anybody know? It is an Audi phone. The only codes I can see when removing the battery of the phone is the following:

Carhandy DTFX 53.1910.950.00
GSM HT911 CE 0170X
450067 05 643276 0

Then a code with an Audi sticker:
4A0 035 741 A806.

I have searched everywhere but can't find anything. The User Manual of the car refers me to the phone manual but I didn't get the phone manual with the car.

Any help or suggestions as welcome.

SOURCE: AUDI A6 RADIO CODE

try another dealer. maybe try to get ahold of one of the techs at lunch time. this info should be free to the car owner, just be ready to supply the title to the car for some proof. maybe try buying the parts guys lunch or coffee and donuts....this usually works for this type of problem. unfortunaley this info really is dealer only..

SOURCE: Don't know the radio reset code. Is there a factory reset?

You need to call an Audi/VW dealership and have the auz code off the back or side of the stereo, which means you have to pull out the stereo. Also you have to give the dealer your VIN # and then they can look it up for you. They may try to tell you they have to hook it up to a computer, thats BS! They will try to get you to bring it in. You have to know what you are talking about when you call, or they will give you some lame excuse to get you to bring it in. They are required to give it to you for free if you tell them the radio code isn't in the owners' manual given to you with the car.

Good luck.

And search through the audizine.com forums or any other audi forum, it will tell you what you need. You may even be able to get someone who posts on the forum and works at a dealership to look it up for you, if you ask nice.

Have you tried spraying starter fluid into the air intake? If it starts you may have a fuel pump or fuel filter issue. I'm assuming that you've verified that you have spark at this point. Good luck!

SOURCE: Audi A6 3.0 tdi Quattro 2005, glow plug light comes on, limp mode

16619 -Engine boost condition - Limit not reached. Check intake hoses/ connections for leaks. Check Turbo charger waste gate regulating valve/ waste gate working correctly. Must move freely when accelerating, won't achieve full boost if waste gate sticking open. Check Turbo impeller turning freely, oil feed pipe for turbo can get blocked causing impeller to seize. Engine compact, not easy to access these components.

I have white smoke coming from where it seems to Problem with the Audi A6 2000 A6 I have white smoke coming from where it seems to appear, under the coolant tank, for a short period of time after...


You have coolant burning. Your 2.7T is a hot-running engine and the plastic tank sits above the left side exhaust manifold. The heat from the manifold is known to cook the tank and make it brittle enough to crack and leak. I think if you look at the tank you'll see it's leaking slightly on the manifold, causing the coolant smoke you're seeing. You can get a new tank from www.GermanAutoParts.com in Albany NY - great place to deal with (I always order parts for jobs from them) and replacement is simple.

I have taken apart the rear speaker and teasted with an ipod and one is working fine but the other is dead!

1999 AUDI A6 avant 2.8L quattro. Car vibrates


This is a manual transmission? If so the clutch probably needs to be replaced. When you say "VIOLENTLY" what is going on, what is the road speed, what are the RPMs at? The more specific information the better. And this problem ONLY occurs between gear changes, right? The other times, everything is normal?

I recently bought a 1999 A6 with no manual. I had to replace the left mirror and right mirror assembly in total at a local garage. I feel so stupid but how do you adjust them?


It is fixed. I went over ever possible part of the car and found the solution on the console. It seems to me that there should be a better way to indicate what this switch is for but there isn't. Then again, I am not the sharpest tack in the box when it comes to this types of things. Maybe I should have been more thorough. Of course a car with a instruction guide is so much better than one without . Thants the next purchase. Thanks for your concern.
