Question about Audi A6

Open Question

I had a lid sign EDC on the control panel in my Audi A6 from 2009. After a couple of days it diappeared. Shortly after that I went on a one month vacation and when I got back the car would not start. Jump started a couple of times to be able to go and shop, and now tried to charge the battery for 10 hours without any result. The car would not start. What is EDC and does it have anything to do with the battery? Also, is it common for a 3 year old car to completely discharge the battery during four weeks of holidays?

SOURCE: battery goes dead on 2004 pacifica

There is obviously a draw from somewhere, and if your dealer doesn't have a mechanic who knows how to narrow it down to the circuit causing the problem, then I'd question there ability. With that said, when all else fails, you simply remove negative connection off battery first, then positive. Take a 12 volt test light & secure one end to the + clamp or connector, and the other end to the battery+ post. Now connect your negative back up to the battery as it was. If that test light, lights up, there is a draw. It will be brighter, the more draw there is. Your going to have some, just from your radio memory alone, but now comes the fun part. All you do is pull the fuses one at a time, if light goes out, or dim's you've found a draw. When you have a real hard one to narrow down, you make sure you know where they all go back to, whether by your map at fuse box, or your own notes, and you pull them all out, and light should go out for sure, if not, there is another circuit or panel, or relay drawing the current. If it goes out, you start putting them back in one at a time, and when the light comes back on bright, you found the circuit. Mark that one down, pull the fuse back out, light off, now do the rest that you haven't checked yet, just to see if there is more than one draw causing the problem, if there is, mark it down, pull it out & continue on until all done. Now you/they narrowed it down or isolated the circuit causing the problem.

SOURCE: Battery needs jump start if car is not driven for 3 days.

u either have a shorted cell in the battery or the system has a current draw like a glove box light being left on, try disconnecting the battery the next time you leave it, if it starts ok then u have a current draw and need to find the source of that draw.

SOURCE: Radio works (tuner, volume control, cd) but no sound

If your radio looks to be working and no sound, open trunk and mounted underneath the deck lid you will see your amp or sound booster. It should have two plugs that plug into it. Unplug the one with two orange wires and with the car switch turned on, check to see if the two orange wires have power on them. If they don't get ready to take out the rear interior and underneath the rear carpet almost at the front seat you will see a big plastic sleeve full of wires on the passenger side. Inside this sleeve there will be one orange wire branching into two orange wires, check to see if it is corroded. That would be where I start.

Have 03 audi a4 conv parked car for a couple of months battery went dead so replaced and now power windows wont work interior lits staus on


Do the power windows not work at all or only the auto up down feature? If it's just the latter, try holding the switch until the window goes all the way up- then release and hold up again immediately for 2 seconds, this resets operation.

If they don't work at all, check your fuse panel for any blown fuses.

have you checked your calipers? They may be sticking putting lots of strain onto the drive shaft causing it to vibrate.

With all the recent snow and grit on the roads you may have some caught in the mechanism meaning it cant release.

Just a small thought to start to determine the problem.

The cruise control went intermittant, then quit completely.


Where is the switch for your cruise control? Is it mounted on the turn signal stalk? If so, it's likely a failure of the stalk. The Audi cars of your generation are known for stalk failures (my 99 A4 has had it twice), and it's likely that VW and Audi share switchgear as they're both part of the same conglomerate parent company. If your switch is on the stalk, you're likely going to have to change it out for a new one. I'd recommend German AutoParts in Albany, NY for buying one (www.germanautoparts.com) - I've bought several parts from them in the past and they're top-notch for service and pricing.

May be the clutch master or slave cylinder. Has the fluid level gone down at all? Have a look around the clutch pedal area for signs of fluid leakage. Good luck, Bob.
