Question about 2003 Audi A6

1 Answer

My 2003 Audi A6 has a "seizure" when put into reverse sometimes. Also, my turn signals recently started to stop working or work when they choose to (they will flash once or twice then quickly flash and then stop all together, yet the hazard light button still works and the blinkers both flash...) also my steering wheel makes a snapping sound when turned left or right... Im assuming the CV shafts are out... what is that going to cost?

Your turn signal issue is very common even though you hazards do work they are on a different line connector in the relay that is also your turn signal relay. replace that hazard relay that should solve that problem. the c/v joints can be about 500 all the way up to almost 1000. depending on if you need the whole joint or just the boot kit. usually if you replace both joints they should swap your joints from right to left. which will make the clicking stop sometimes but if the damage is so bad that there are divots in the joint where the balls move you will need to replace both joints. and to be very honest going with after market c/v axles which allot of private shops do i have never seen one work without issues. not balanced right. as far as your transmission if you are low on transmission fluid due to an impact on your transmission pan that could cause that problem or if you have a shift solenoid going bad which can be very expensive. good luck hope that helped.

Turn signals not working audi a6 2002

turn signal switch most likely. But it could have a faulty flasher relay. the signals and the hazards probably have seperate flasher relays and possibly on different circuits so check fuses as well

My blinkers won't work, the light just stays on (not blinking) do I need to replace the flasher? Where is it? The hazards work. It's a 2003 Audi A6

The relay is built into the hazard switch. It could be that or the turn signal switch. Try the hazard switch first (it's relatively cheap). If that doesn't do it, you'll have to replace the turn signal switch, which involves removal of the steering wheel and airbag.

Unless your shade tree mechanic is an Audi expert, go to the dealer who has all the books and diagrams that tell the tech exactly where to look. The other guy may want to replace something just to troubleshoot and the factory tech should know exactly what to replace or which plug is loose.

Won't go into reverse sometimes

I'm assuming you checked your transmission fluid level. Sounds like a transmission problem. I don't think its something you want to try to fix yourself. you should take it to the shop.
