SOURCE: ecu not communicating audi a6

what about one of these re-conditioning places or a go to scrappers and find a smashed one and get the ECU and the chip out of the key.If this vehicle is a europeon built one for the europeon market but ended up in stateside then the problem could be that the software is encrypted and your dealer doesnt have the encrypted version of the software and i doubt if they will be able to obtain it either .

Testimonial: "Many thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately relay seems fine. I think it may be an engine management problem."

The sensor is in the locking mechanism, alot of vw and audis have this problem with the hoods and the trunks, you have to remove the panel where the mechanism is and disconnect the cable and leave it disconnected, the light should turn off

Audi A3 TDI glow plug light flashing. Turbo doesn't kick in. Persistent problem now. Previously, it came and went.


hi
possibly the EGR valve is blocked.
one way to clear it. by taking it to a high way. drive in lower gear and more speed to clear EGR.
otherwise remove the egr valve and connecting pipe and clean the build up carbon.

Replace glow plug on audi a3 2005


If this is a Diesel engine, the glowplugs would be in a position like a sparkplug. You can replace them as you wish, or replace only the bad one. To determine if a glowplug is bad, you would remove it as you do a sparkplug on a gas engine.

With several of the glowplugs removed, you would place a battery jumper cable on one end of the glowplug, while being careful not to damage its threads. That cable would be connected to the NEG battery cable. The remaining cable would be placed on the Positive(+) terminal of the battery and then you would briefly tough the POS cable to the top of the glowplug.

Do this briefly. You can melt the part. But you need to see if the glowplug will glow. Often the problem with glowplugs is the Timer box. This is the box from where the wires come from to go to the glowplugs.

If you have a glowplug staying dark, or failing to glow well, then it is a bad glowplug. Each should glow the same. That is why you check several at a time to tell what is normal.

I work on Ford diesels and do not know what plastic covers you may have. So just follow the wires that are not on the fuel injectors and that is all you can possibly do.

Hazard light and interior lights problem on 2001 A3


the indicator lights flashing constantly might be a warning from the car that all the doors have not been closed properly

after writing this ^^ i think that the system that tells the car if the door is open or closed it damaged or broken
and needs replacing

try leaving all the doors open and lock the car do the indicator lights flash contantly?

you need to get a dianostics done but due to the reson that it is intermmitant the problem will not exist when you get to the garage

check all the sensors that tell the car if the door is open firstly
