Question about 2003 Audi A6

1 Answer

My 2003 A6 2.5TDi Avant Multitronic seems to have developed gremlims in the driver information system. It started with the AIRBAG warning light going on/off. Then the multitronic display would show a negative display and this would come and go(car drives fine with all gears working). Now on startup instead of the display showing "When Stationary Apply Footbrake While Selecting Gear" goes straight to OK and shows normal display of Radio station etc. Any help would be very appreciated.

It maybe the information display is not in standard mode by some kind of diagnostic mode.

If you have raiod security code, disconnect the battery negative terminal for 30 mins and reconnect it to see if it can rest it.

How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

Airbag light on 2001 sonata, also small modular under pasanger seat broken cover, and under driver seat there is a wonnector that does'nt go anywhere. thank's


First the airbag system can be dangerous to work on and it is usually best to consult a professional since to accidental inflation of an airbag can cause injury, do not cut any wires and disconnect the battery when working on the system.
When the airbag light is on it disables the airbag system inmost vehicles meaning if there is a collision the airbags will not deploy. Some autoparts stores can check codes which is where to start with the warning light on and modular connected check the airbag trouble codes with this information it will be easier to diagnose the system and the cause of your problem. I hope this helps

Error b1034 airbag warning light


This light came on in my car when the alternator went bad. If the airbag system is not getting enough voltage it will show a warning indicator light. Check your battery and alternator to make sure they are putting out enough juice.

2004 jeep liberty limited 4x4 airbag light goes on when you start the car then goes off for a few seconds then comes back on . both dash light and grab handle lights do this


The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed; sometimes, scanner reader could helpfull to know exactly what fault code is stored there. keep in mind that this isnt an OBD codes reader, this is more specific for Airbag Systems.

Also, isnt rare to know that the airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may not be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked right away". Always wear your seatbelt. On 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.

Check THIS ARTICLE for additional details.

Hope this helps.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car


{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

Beeping Sound in Ford Escort


there is a malfunction in the srs system.

the flashing airbag light is indicating a failurein the system and it is flashing a code.

the beeping is coming from the controll module, if the controller detects a malfunction in the airbag warning light than it will beep in place of flashing the light, this is to inform the driver of a air bag malfunction.

the light bulb may be bad or it may have a poor connection even if you saw the light on, the controller said there is a resistance issue in that circuit.

but you still need to have that system check to find out what started the malfunction and commanded the light on.

good luck
