There is a sensor mounted on top of the ignition switch that looks at the magnetic "chip" in your car key when you stick the key in. If it doesn't think you have the right key (because of a defective key or "chip") it won't let the ignition switch start the car. There is a reset procedure Try this:--- Insert key into ignition and turn the key as if to start. Nothing will happen. Release the key but do not remove it. Push one of the three buttons (doesn't matter which) on your alarm. Now turn key to off position and then turn key to start. It should start at that point. You'll still have a message on your display "key not accepted." Although this works fine. click this link for more help http://www.saabnet.com/tsn/faq/keyfaq.pdf Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

U are going to need the Audi dealer to scan the factory anti-theft module and see if the key receiver is defective or the module is the problem, without the Audi scan tool there is no way to diagnose this without guessing, no matter what u think is wrong the new parts must be programmed or u will have a no start,the trip to the dealer is unavoidable.

Speedometerworks, but odometer/tripmeter stopped


The odometer/trip meter work together via a IC and pulse motor. I just replaced the Instrument cluster in my 94 Corolla DX. I purchased a used cluster that had 230,000 miles showing( mine was 199,000). It' a "plug and play" system, electronic analog. The cluster I purchased the trip meter didn't function, I removed the speedometer from the cluster and applied some silicone spray to the plastic gears and now it's working, (the plastic gears are very fragile and after many miles and years they are prone to breakage). If you are lucky this might be a solution, If not buy a used instrument cluster and install it yourself and hope for the best (used). I didn't have a tachometer on my original cluster so I purchased a cluster with a Tach. The 94 DX and LE should be "plug and play",not sure about the CE. The change is quite simple tow screws remove the bezel, 4 screws remove the cluster, unpluy the connectors, 2 white 1 blue.The cluster was $55.00

Car hesitates to go forward; front passenger wheel squeaks


Do you have a check engine light on? Have you run the fault code test on the computer control module (ECU) If not that needs to be done first.

Volvo V-70 drivetrain & electronics faults


I suspect you have some loose connections or shorts in the wiring harness. I've had similar strange things happen with an Olds Bravada. Various transmission shifting problems, faults, etc. that all seemed to come from the engine's computer system getting incorrect voltages and readings due to wiring faults/shorts.

CAR STARTED TO SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING I PUT IN NEUTRAL RESTARTED THEN BACK TO DRIVE DID IT 2 SEPARATE TIMES FINALLY WAS DRIVING PARKED AND IT SHUT OFF HASN'T COME BACK ON I HAVE SEVERAL CODES FROM AUTO...


Dieing while driving but restarting right away, no starts from a dead stop. To me this sounds like the anti theft security system shutting you down. These have been known to turn off injectors while driving and starters while stopped. Check and see if a light is illuminated that says SECURITY when it fails to start. Leave the key forward and look for it. If you see that light, then it is 100% the security system. This link has tons of info on symptoms, causes, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

The car is leaking transmission fluid


It may be leaking from the transmission pan gasket or either of the transaxle seals. If it's leaking from the middle front of the transmission, it could be the front pump seal, if it's that, you'll have to remove the transmission to replace that seal. They others can be done with the transmission in the car.

When I start my Audi A6 Quattro, a warning light goes on which says Inspect. I don't have a manual. What to do?


It doesn't mean there's a problem. That inspection message is based on miles driven, not on any problem that the car has detected. On my A4, the "service oil" message pops up every 5000 miles. I just turn it off because I do my oil changes more often than that and the message does not coincide with my intervals.

On the A4 (and I suspect the same on your A6), to turn off the message, put the key in the ignition. On the gauge cluster, there are two stalks. Hold down the left one and turn the key to full electrical power (right before you'd crank the engine). Still holding in the left stalk, pull out on the right one and the message should change to "- - - -". Release the right stalk, turn the key off, and then release the left stalk. Turn the key back on and the message should be gone.

It may take a couple tries, but once you get it right, you'll be good to go for another (probably) 5000 miles.
