Some can be repaired the first thing is to try a little wd40 in the key hole and work key in ignition, the spring back action is done by the switch not the ignition cylinder locjk, but if the lock binds up it will cause it not to return, so start with the lube, after a few days if it still doesnt return then remove covers and replace the switch on the back of key switch. hope this helps, most of the time the lube works.

1999 AUDI A6 avant 2.8L quattro. Car vibrates


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?

Audi A6 Manual trans.1.8 T key will not stay in ACC position.To play radio with engine off you have to hold the key in the passed start position.


sounds like that ignition switch is broken or maybe a blown fuse, check all your fuses start there if all fuses are good then switch is the problem, good luck.

98 Audi Quattro keys don't srping back after starting the engine


You have a bad Ignition Switch they are known to go out on the 90's audi's.

The part is pretty inexpensive but the labor maybe quite high.

When you start it make sure the key gets back to the proper position otherwise you will burn up your starter and cause another expensive problem.

I have a 96 audi a6 and the key is now stuck in the ignition. Car starts and runs but the key will not come out. Just happened out of the blue...


I would try WD-40, spraying down beside the key with a spray nozzle on the end before I took it to a repair shop or pulled the steering wheel.

No sweat. This is a periodic reminder that your car is due for some sort of servicing, usually based on mileage. It may say "service oil" or "inspection" or some other indication along those lines. This is not related to a check-engine light, which tells you that you have something wrong with your car. The inspection reminders are manually resettable with the small stalks on the instrument cluster, and are meant to be reset each time a service interval is reached and that service is completed.

On my A4, the reset is this way: with the ignition off, hold down the stalk on the right, by the odometer, and turn the key on (don't start the engine). The display goes to "------". Pull out on the other stalk to reset it. Turn the key off, and release the right-hand stalk. When you turn the key back on, the indicator should be cleared. It may be different on your A6, but try it that way and see if that clears it.
