Question about 1995 Audi A6

1995 Audi A6 - no start

The car has a charged battery. No problems related to electrical or ignition prior to this. On control panel, there are two headlight switches, one on left and one right of it -- the right one is flashing fast when I insert key and turn to start position.

    The second part of your solution suggests only a dealer can reset this with a special tool.


    Instead of that, is there a way to reset it myself?


    There is a "BOSCH" plug on the opposite side of where the battery sits (under back seat).


    Can I remove that somehow and thereby reset this?


    My bind is -- I want to not spend money on this. I want to sell it.

YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM HAS LOCKED YOU OUT, USE THE KEY AND LOCK AND UNLOCK DRIVERS DOOR, IF THIS DOESN'T RESET THE SECURITY SYSTEM THEN U WILL NEED TO HAVE THE SYSTEM TESTED WITH A SPECIAL DEALER ONLY SCAN TOOL.

    THE ONLY RESET YOU CAN DO IS TO CYCLE THE DOOR LOCKS WITH THE KEY, THE SCANNER THE DEALER HAS IS NOT TO RESET IT, IT IS TO LINK WITH THE SECURITY SYSTEM MODULE AND SEE WHAT IS CAUSING IT TO FALSELY TRIGGER AND LOCK YOU OUT, MOST LIKEY A DEFECTIVE IGNITION KEY SENSOR IN THE STEERING COLUMN, THE SCANNER CAN CONFIRM THIS IS THE PROBLEM.

"Tranny not shifting properly. Dead battery recently. Could the tranny problem be electrical? Does a computer need a reboot? Audi A6"


Not likely related to the battery dying. Have your transmission oil replaced as a start, this fixes a lot of transmission issues. If that doesn't work, have it checked by a transmission shop, could be anything from a switch to a transmission rebuild.

1999 AUDI A6 avant 2.8L quattro. Car vibrates


This is a manual transmission? If so the clutch probably needs to be replaced. When you say "VIOLENTLY" what is going on, what is the road speed, what are the RPMs at? The more specific information the better. And this problem ONLY occurs between gear changes, right? The other times, everything is normal?

How do you open an Audi a6 '05 boot when the battery has completely died?


sadly for most cars with electric bootlids the only way to do that would be with a charged battery, or it can be opened from the inside by removing the panel off of the bootlid and pulling the cable that the solenoid delatches the lid with, or a muscular arm and a crowbar haha!

Audi A6 2006 problem with battery


Yes
First thing is to test the battery and this is how Turn on head lights, if dull leave on to see how long the stay on for. Next turn lights off put battery on charge for 6 hrs .Turn on lights again if still dull either battery or charger no good
If lights bright try to start and when starter trys to turn engine over the lights go dim THEN battery is no good.
Then get a jump start from another battery and put pos term on both batterys first, then earth lead(BLACK) on last then start if starts ok remove the BLACK lead and turn on head lights if goes bright ALTERNATORs ok so replace battery ....

Starter is turnig but not firing


Starter switch. Plastic and cheap, my 98 A6 did the same thing... I replaced thousands in parts, turned out to be a cracked ignition switch which is a very common Audi problem!
