That is a sign that your ABS controller is failing - can rebuild it and warranty it for you.

Audi A6 Brake Light & Beeping

think its a computer system issue-its all connectd these days-even with the steering--disconnect batt then put it back after a minute-may clear up--------if not pull plug at computer clean it and replug a few times-----these reboots at times work------but u mite need to run a thuro diagnostic to see different voltages-go to a good mechanic not a dealer--a hand held scanner will not do this

ABS light, brake light, tachometer to zero, oil light, A/C

This sounds like a bad ground or poor connection maybe in the main plug that connects at the firewall. The last thing to condemn would be the computer. I have come across a good many of this thing on the older model cars and trucks, and all you can do is search it out.

Not sure

Do you get a flashing ABS light or BRAKE light along with the beeps? If so, this is indicative of an ABS failure, which is either a wheel speed sensor or (much more likely) the ABS controller. I've had an ABS/wheel speed sensor fail on my A4 and I had no beeping, but people I know have had the beeps and had to replace or rebuild the ABS module. If you do have this problem, go to and call them - they can rebuild the ABS module for a couple hundred dollars give or take, versus several times that cost for a new one.

If you are only getting the beeping, but not the lights flashing, it could still indicate this failure, but Audi usually has the cars set up to indicate what is wrong by flashing lights as well as the beeping, to help you see what the problem is.
