Audi A6 central locking problem

I have a 1999 Audi A6 2.4 tiptronic and the central locking system has failed . You can enter or exit the car from the drivers door only via the key , all the other doors remain locked , neither the key fob or the switch on the drivers door unlock the other doors , even the interior handles dont release the doors , the fuse box is impossible to access with not being able to open the passengers door ! Help . Thanks , John

Hi John.
Inspect the key fob for a place to open it and check for a battery.

I have been having similar problems. The clutch is slipping as thats how you get the variable gears when in full auto, but this is where the problem comes from, some garages (auto gearbox specialists) are now able to fix it. Do not go to Audi as all they do is replace the gearbox (very expensive). There is no quick fix though! Sorry for the bad news!!

SOURCE: water damaged 99 Audi A6 Avant

On right hand drive vehicles there is a 'convenience' ECU under the front passenger side carpet (I think it swaps and is under the right hand side in a left hand drive) This ECU operates and controls all the systems you have described, they suffer water damage very easily. This will be the cause of your problems and unfortunately will need to be replaced and coded. The ECU was put in this place to keep it well out of the way of any contamination such as water, then the cars ended up leaking water straight on to it! The carpet in the front can be lifted up from the edge by the door with a few trims removed. You probably had quite a lot of water in there because water runs to the back of the car, by the time its visible in the back a lot of water has entered. Let me know if you want anymore imformation.

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?

Central locking device on an audi a8 year 1999


Either one of the vacuum hoses has popped off or there is a leak in the system. The system uses a vacuum pump to push/pull air through hoses connected to actuators in each door..
Have someone activate the system while you listen in the trunk for the pump, find it and see if one of the hoses has fallen off there.

Remote central locking not working on my audi A6 2.4 automatic petrol left hand drive but when doing it manually with key only drivers door opens and all indecaters flash quicker than usual


As far as the central locking issue, it sounds like you need to replace your central locking pump. You can buy them online.
I have a 95 A6 and I am in the process of looking for a new central locking pump.
The part number may be 4A0 862 257 J, that is what it is for me.
There are directions online as to how to change this yourself once you get the part. If you buy from the dealership the part is $500.
Be thankful your child locks weren't engaged. We haven't been able to open our back doors since the pump went out.

Audi Quattro A6 will not go into drive


It's the brake pedal switch. There is a switch down on the pedal arm that closes when you press the pedal down, and sends a sensing voltage to the controller, telling it the brakes are applied. This allows the transmission lock to disengage so you can shift out of Park. When that switch fails, the lock won't disengage. You need to replace that switch and you'll be fixed.

Problem...can't find the solution..pls HELP me


It's a transmission system failure. Take it to an Audi dealer or a euro-car specialist. When the indicators light up like that, there IS a transmission fault code stored in the controller. The shop can use diagnostic software to retrieve the code so they can fix the problem. There are several things that can cause this to happen, so you have to have that code scanned before you can start to repair it.

Central locking system does not work


You should still be able to lock your car with the key, remember how we use to do it the old way..... with the key :-D. The central lock solenoid is located in the door itself, behind the door trim. Replace the offending solenoid with a new or used one. And once again you can lock/unlock the car with the remote
