I have a 1999 Audi A6 quattro my right brake light went out I went to to switch the bulb and the bulb was OK but wont come on now I can't put my shift gear into gear without turning my lights on

There's should be a shift interlock that prevents it from being put into gear unless the brakes are on; check if the fuse it good for the brake lights; it seems to somehow be tied in with the parking lights, which may be feeding into the brake light circuit.

My 99 audi a6 wen i start the car it wont stay on

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems.

Hi I have an Audi A6 2.4lt Auto year 2000 my question is on the dash instruments there is a yellow triangle IE warning me something is wrong. My gear selector jamsgets stuck will not move, I had water in...

Have someone check and see if the brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal..The warning lamp may indicate a fuse out to the brake light circuit--if the fuse is blown/faulty then the gearshift won't move, it needs to "see" the brake circuit is on before allowing the shifter to engage.

Cruise control won't work

99% of the time it's the combination switch (the column switch assembly that houses the turn signal stalk and the headlight stalk). They're not designed extremely well and are a known failure area on the A4, which I believe shares the stalk with the A6. If it's the stalk, it's about an hour long job yourself to change it out, and the part is about $158 new. You do have to deal with the airbag though (the steering wheel has to come off), so if you're squeamish about this, it may be better to have it done by a shop.

1995 Audi A6 engine problem

Check that the correct oil is in the gearbox - and in correct quantity. Sounds like there is too little oil in the converter.
