Question about Audi A6

Open Question

1998 Audi A6 information display turned off

My information screen will not display how many miles i have left before my gas tank is empty, or the temperature outside, or what radio station i am listening to. I know the screen still works because it still informs me to press the brake when I first start the car. How do I turn all this information back on?

There is a button on the bottom of your windshield wiper control arm. Push it once to turn on or off the computer display. Hold it to clear the current information. At the end of the arm is a "up/down" button for changing which info you would like to see (miles to empty, current mpg, etc.)
Happy driving!

SOURCE: AUdi A6 gas tank button

There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car.  As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.

SOURCE: Radio in Audi A6 won't turn off but digital display is just red

i) fuse box for the audi A6 is most probably on the right side close to the driver;s seat by the steering wheel.  The driver door must be open to access the fuse box.  Please check owner's manual. ii) in the 2002 Audi A6 it is fuse #37.  Please check owner's manual. iii) remove the fuse for the radio then replace fuse. iv) start the engine v) the radio most probably will reset it self but you should not have to enter the security access code for the radio. let me know how the works. thanks

Service lights


Hi, if your 2006 Audi A6 service light is coming up, you have to reset it by following the instruction below..


If your instrument cluster has 2 knobs, one on each side (Older A4's, 1998-2004 A6's, TT's up to ~2006):
Press the right knob and hold it, turn the ignition on, release the right knob and press the left knob, the display should change to service in ----- miles. Or....


Press the right knob and hold it. Turn the ignition on and release the right knob and pull the left one. Then, push the right knob again and pull the left knob again. The display where the mileage is shown should change.


If your instrument cluster has a little wrench on a button on the right (2002-2008 A4's):
Press and hold the wrench button. Turn the ignition on, release the wrench button and press the 0,0 button next to it. The center display should change.


If you have a older body A8, you may be able to reset without a scan tool. Press the 0,00 button on the right of the cluster, turn the ignition on and release the 0,00 button and press the "M" or "Mode" button on the left and it should reset. If this does not work, or you have a 2004 or newer A8, it will probably require a scan tool.


If you have a much older or newer Audi, or certain A8's, you need a scan tool or a special made service light reset tool, available online. You can also purchase af, ter market software and a adapter lead for your laptop and use that. The reset tools will come with instructions. The After market software will go as follows:
On most older vehicles, enter vehicle self diagnosis. Go to #17: Instrument cluster. Go to adaptations, and change the following adaptation channel numbers to the number listed next to it, following the on screen prompts to save and accept.
Channel 5 --> 12
Channel 6 --> 24
Channel 7 --> 36
Channel 8 --> 72


If you have a A3, 2009+ A4, 2005+ A6 or 2004+ A8, or a Q7 and are using the after market software:
Go to guided functions, go to service work, go to reset service light, or something of that nature, and follow the on screen prompts.

Fuel gauge reads E when first started, jumps to F after awhile


It is more likely to be the fuel guage sender which is faulty.

Faulty petrol gauge


I had same problem with petrol gauge bouncing around all over the place, full tank, half a tank and nearly empty in the space of 10 miles.

I knew that if I filled the tank I would get approx 200 miles for half a tank so I did that for a while and just kept topping up. Audi testing it and the fuel sensors in the tank had to be replaced. I'm afraid its the only permanent solution!
