Question about 1996 Audi A6
Have an Audi quatro A6. First the only problem was the battery (changed new) then the alternator (changed new but deffective so changed for another new one) after the first alternator was replaced the battery light still blinks; so after two days (car was parked) try again and get worst, the engine won't keep running like almost out of gas, have to keep pushing the gas peddal but also engine go off.
After you changed the alternator you should have reset the alarm/immobiliser.

I presume that you have rectified the alternator charging problem and have a good battery. If the alternator is not charging, the vehicle won't run correctly and eventually cut out as the electronics need a good voltage to operate correctly. I don't find the fault code you have mentioned but if it is to do with the throttle valve you can try doing basic settings. If you have access to a diagnostic reader select- Engine control unit  -Select basic settings  -Select Channel 098 [some vehicles 060]. Basic settings should run and then indicate ok. If Basic settings does not run throttle valve may be faulty. If you don't have access to a diagnostic tester, try disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes, reconnecting again and turning on the ignition without starting the vehicle. You should be able to hear a light buzzing noise from the throttle valve as it sets itself to its basic setting.
