Question about 2006 Audi A4

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Audi A4 with a multitronic (CVT) transmission. Over the past several days, under heavy acceleration, the engine will stop building rpms. This has happened at different speeds several times. I had no indicator lights of a problem until today and I just got a check engine light. No odd sounds or smells from the engine, just this seemingly random cutoff of power.

These cars are very complex and it's not easy to diagnose. You should take it to a qualified technician with the proper electronic disagonstic tools to verify the problem. Start off with a full scan. It may be a simple as a software upgrade or as complex as the tranny needing repair. I wouldn't drive the car hard and get this resolved asap.

Where is the Audi A4, 2006 Multitronic (CVT) Transmission Control Module (Computer Board) or Valve Body located? Thanks!


The computer usually sits on the wall next to the driver's legs, but yours could be under the seats, or under the dash, that one I don't know, but it should be kept dry, not under the hood. The valve body is in the transmission. It is accessible from underneath, just under the filter, or on top I should say, holds all your shift solenoids etc.

Hi Frank I am a technician with audi myself It may be that you require an engine e.c.u and not a gearbox one however has your A4 had any recalls carried out on the gearbox since purchase if not that would definately be something worth checking hope this helps.

A4, 3.0 with CVT


When you say "no throttle response," do you mean that the engine reacted to the throttle but the car wouldn't move?  If so, this is a fairly common issue with CVT cars....CVT is not quite ready for the road yet.
