SOURCE: 2001 Audi A4 Windshield Wiper Issues....Work on their own

The most likely cause of your symptoms is the wiper motor parking relay has become faulty, however there is a slim possibility the connections within your wiper switch could be an issue, but the relay would be my first and cheepest line of enquiry. Contact your local VAG dealer and expect to pay somewhere in the region of £15. Good luck

SOURCE: i have an audi a4

This is a common problem with your shape A4, pre 2001 A4s and old shape A6s. Rain water builds up in the area under the bonnet where your battery is. This can be accessed by removing the long black trim under the windscreen covering the battery. This area has two drain holes with small rubber tubes on it, these tubes get blocked over time by leaves, dirt etc. They need to be unblocked, and the tubes can be completely removed (and left off). This is much easier to do underneath the car but at least one can be done from the top. Its under the battery though. Be aware when you disconnect the battery, you will lose your radio coding.
It needs to be done though as if the water is coming in the car then it must be high. The water has most likely damaged your convenience control unit (electronic control unit) under the carpet of the footwell, this controls the failed electrical items you described. The water can cause further problems, electrical as it submerges the battery! And brakes as the brake servo can **** the water in causing many problems! Well worth getting it out sooner rather than later. Hope this helps and hasnt scared you too much. Good luck

SOURCE: audi a4 bonnet release mechanism broken

This can be over come by getting a pair of vise grips and gripping the cable that is sticking out and pulling it out, once you have opened it Do not attempt to close the hood without replacing the cable. You have maybe only one chance at this so if you don't succeed you will make it harder for a mechanic to fix it. a new cable is not to difficult to replace, buy the cable and housing replace both.

SOURCE: Audi A3 Air Con Cut out

Happened to me too, when the ECO light comes on automaticly (and it only blows hot air) it means it's simply broke.

I don't know the exact production date of your car, but there is/was an airco-related dealer recall for some cars, so just contact your dealer and have it fixed, but don't forget to mention the recall (it might save you a lot of money when your warranty has already expired).

I Have an Audi A4 1.9 tdi


Sounds to be a security problem. Check or replace the battery in the key first. After that. It has to go on a scanner. You might want to get it to an Audi dealer for this. I have several scanners that tell me codes, but I can't do the Audi security.

Car starts but revs for a few seconds with lots of black smoke and then cuts out have disconected exhaust from manifold but no change


Is this a diesel TDI PD ?? If so i had the same problem with one of these TDI engines and traced it to the crank sensor signal implausable. The revs would start increasing with no pressure on the throttle, lots of black smoke and then cut out. The crank sensor wiring was at fault in this case. The ECU didnt know where the crank position was in relation to the camshaft and was guessing when to inject the fuel. Hence the black smoke ! Hope this is of some use.

Tdi Turbo Charger


Most likely yes, but you may want to investigate whether a second-hand turbo is a better option price-wise. I don't know what the TDI turbos sell for, but on the gas engines, the stock K03 turbos only go for a couple hundred dollars (or less) used, with no endplay. It may be less hassle to just source a replacement in order to get your car back on the road. You could then have your turbo rebuilt at your leisure and keep it as a spare.
