Question about 1999 Audi A4

Problem with my Radio

Alright, This isn't a mechanical problem, but more of an inconvenience really, nothing that will hinder my car's performance.

But, anyway, my problem is dealing with the radio. The radio has the 6 CD changer and stock Bose speakers option(in case this has something to do with my problem).
The radio itself works fine, BUT i can only get a limited number of stations. I can't manually tune my radio for specific stations in my area, even though the seek should pick them up, because they have crystal clear reception, and it's quite annoying.
do i need to recode my radio to pick up these other stations? or is there another button i need to press before doing a manual tuning? or is there something else i need to do?
If nothing else works, im probably going to end up buying a in-dash stereo kit.
If someone else has or has had this problem, let me know on how i would go about fixing it.

Thanks!

Mine used to do the exact same thing. it probably has to do with the singla strength. i just tuned in manually, then i just got an aftermarket stereo, but it does the same thing. it doesnt pick up every single station there is, clear or not clear.

    My radio has two knobs, left side is the volume and right side is the tuning. i just tuned it to the frequency of the station I wanted.

I ran off the road into a field to avoid hitting a deer. It was abrupt & bumpy. Now my front passenger tire is bent inward and steering wheel must be sideways for the truck to run straight. What are...


If the tire on the rim is still holding air and the rim isn't obviously bent it should be alright if you go nice and slow but would still be a better idea to put a spare on it if you got it. Slamming off the road though it's possible you just threw it out of alignment which would be great, but then again you could have bent part of your steering linkage.

If the car was recently flooded, there really isn't a whole lot of things that woudl cause it to stop moving. I would say to accept what your mechanic says and go ahead and change the computer.

Air conditioner blowing hot air and car overheating when idle


Air conditioning is one area where the owner generally is not qualified or equipped to perform the necessary repairs. If you are overheating and the ac isn't cooling I would check the condenser (radiator in front of the engine radiator) and made sure it's not obstructed. Also make sure that the electric fan comes on when you engage the A/C. Beyond that there isn't much you really can do except have an professional run a diagnostics on the system.

My Break, ABS and Trac warning lights all come on at the same time. I can shut the engine down and restart the issue goes away. I t seems to be happening more frequently. My mechanic found nothing wrong...


Nothing wrong. Doesn't that seem strange to you

The ABS & Trac came on because that system has issues

There may be stored data, if not a code present

The mechanic has to component test to find the problem

These guys spend too much time with a scan tool & I
think some of them are waiting for it to tell them something

Doesn't work that way. If everything goes as it should, the
scanner shows what the computer sees,that's all,& that can
be a lot,but you have to move on & use different skills that
not everyone has learned yet apparently

Try another shop

That really isn't a diagnostic test etc,just looking at data
stream,if they see nothing out of range they quit

That doesn't help you any,the problem is still there,intermitent
maybe, but there.

My 1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette stutters while driving. At first it seemed like water in the tank or garbage in the line. Tried "Heat", was fine for a week (did not fill the tank) then it started...


You have a blinking battery light
and a condition when pedal is pressed
to the floor

Diagnose those 2 issues first & maybe you
will resolve the stutter problem
Most likely ignition issue

Try a different mechanic

The fact you tell use what your experiencing,
is proof that your mechanic isn't working
on the issues you have.

2003 honda accord. will not start, can hear starter turning regularly, but will not catch and turn over. Battery is strong. lights come on, horn blows radio works. automatic not manual.


If your starter is turning, but not engaging, your start is more than likely stuck. Replace your starter and you should be alright. You could try tapping on the starter with a hammer to try and dislodge the starter gear, but this doesn't always work, and is very inconvenient.

Our truck suddenly died, it'll turn over but it seems like there is no compression.


this could really be anything, broken timing chain, faulty fuel pump, faulty ignition system, it will need to go to a mechanice to be checked with a code reader to find the fault, most mechanics won't charge to have a look, its just very inconvenient for you to tow, perhaps consider a mobile mechanic. sorry couldn't be any more help. Good luck

Windows-wipres-doorlocks-radio olny work when in park when in drive,rev nothing works .But car drives alright


While the neutral saftey switch is not connected to this, all related wiring does run through the same loom, look for a poor connection at the steering column mounted igniton switch under dash.

Problem with my Radio Tuner!


YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE ANTENNA. THERE ARE 4 ANTENNAS IN THE REAR WINDOW FOR BOTH AM AND FM SIGNALS. THERE IS AND UNIT CALLED A DIVERSITY BOX UNDER THE REAR HAT SHELF THE CONNECTS THEM ALL AND DECIDES WHAT ANTENNA IS GETTING THE BEST SIGNAL. THAT UNIT MAY BE FAULTY. BEST TO HAVE IT CHECKED BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE SYSTEM OR TAKE IT TO A DEALER. MIGHT BE CHEAPER THAN BUYING A NEW AFTERMARKET RADIO.
