Would it go past 20 before the tune up? Sound like your car might be in limp mode. Any check engine codes?

SOURCE: Have an audi a4 1.8T Cabrio. Battery went dead,

I had the exact problem with my A4 2001 1,9 TDI but i just turned the car on, then first turned the steering wheel to the left as far as it goes, then to the right (i dont know if this is necessary but this is what i did). After i drove for few meters,the light went off and it worked normally.

SOURCE: 2003 audi A4 2.0 fsi, has misfire on idle

this is going to sound crazy BUT i would (and have) take your car to a skoda dealer, labour cost 1/2 that of audi(i worked for audi for 11 years)and the parts are out of the same box.have you replaced H.T.leads as thet are carbon fibre and can cause the same symptoms.also ask to speak to audi area technical manager when next in your area.he is factory trained.

Fill transmission fluid on 19999 audi a4


LISTEN CLOSE. THERE IS A PLUG ON PAN. REMOVE IT. WITH A SYRINGE TYPE CANISTER YOU NEED TO INJECT THE FLUID INTO IT UNTIL IT STARTS TO COME OUT. THEN CAREFULLY START VEHICLE AND INJECT ANOTHER 3/4 QUART UNLESS IT STARTS TO COME OUT OR EVEN A QUART.LET IT RUN FOR 5 MINUTES THEN CONTINUE TO INSERT UNTIL IT OVERFLOWS AND TIGHTEN THE PLUG BACK TO THE PAN. i WOULD ONLY USE AUDI VOLKSWAGON FLUID AND YES IT CAN RUN $14 TO $18 A LITER

Audi a4 1.8 avant 1997


my 97 a4 would start and then die, i had it diagnosed as the immobiliser in the dashboard costing about £600 !!! The battery went flat trying to start it so i took it off the car and charged it up, when i put it back on the car before i took it to get fixed i thought i would try it 1 more time and "hey presto" it started and ran and has not missed a beat since ! That was 2 years ago, it was like the computer had re-set itself with the battery removed for charging, i hope this may be of some help.
