Question about 1999 Audi A6

1 Answer

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

Hello,

My 1999 A6 has the ABS light come on and stay on, the tachometer goes to zero, the oil light flashes in the center, three beeps sound, and the air conditioner stops kicking out cold air. The fan continues to work, but there is no cold air. This problem was intermittent, but now is constant. The cluster was checked and no problem was detected. I have seen this problem posted from others all over the internet, with no solution other than to try replacing the ABS module. Or would I have to replace the entire computer?

Thank you for your best guess!
Tanya

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.

ABS light,brake light, tachometer to zero, oil light, a/c


i can guarantee that you have several shorts in your wiring harness that is leading to all of your accessories and switches. find the electrical shorts and you will fix your problem. also your sensors (idiot lights) are popping on because of defective connections in the wiring. also check all of your relay circuits and fuses.

Break light and anti-brake comes on sometimes on My 1999 Audi A6


This is common in the audi cars. It may be that your ABS module is failing or the the connector to the ABS pump located in the engine compartment on the drivers side, with black metal lines going into it. Their is a large black connector that sometimes needs to be unplugged and cleaned and plugged back in

Oil light and brake lights blinks on and off and abs light is on


Just a idea. If the car is running at idle and the oil light blinks , it usually from low oil pressure. At a idle your seeing the light respond to the revolutions of the engine. ! thing to try is to replace the oil pressure switch on the engine block. And #2, Most causes in a VW is that the vehicle overheated at one time and weekend the oil pump,or massive amount of miles.
