Question about 2004 Audi S4

1 Answer

Audi S4 radio turns back on after you shut car off. In addition, the controls for the radio for the most part won't work, and you can't "Power off" the radio. It won't shut down, when you hit the power off function. Any clues on this "Christine" of a car.

I have a 2000 audi s4 it ran fine until I went to the store. I tried to start it and I turned over but didn't start up. I tried to scan the ecu and it says no comm. I checked for spark and no spark I...

Just food for thought, remove the distributor cap and have somebody else crank the engine over and see if the rotor is turning if its not, I'd look at timing belt/chain. My observations are usually timing belts break when starter first engages or when engine shuts off, as most strain on timing components are when first start rotating, or a backfire occurs, seeing as was running fine when you shut it off id check this first, then control module, hope that helps you out.

2000 Audi S4 Manual Transmission car - starting issue

Before you do anything expensive... check the battery cables, particularly the black earth lead where it connects to the engine block/bodywork. Also check the cleanliness and tightness of the battery terminal clamps themselves.

In the engine bay also look for any other black earthing cables. Loosen and retighten them (I.e .. clean them..). A bad earth can cause numerous problems.

It sounds as though you have an earthing problem with the car. You may have an additional problem with the under-dashboard electronics, which has been causing intermittent working of some instruments. However, this may also be due to a badly/corroding earth wire somewhere. Do the simple things first and if the problem persists see a decent auto electrician.

I have a 2000 s4 audi and the radio says safe on it. I dont have the manual and if there is anyway you can figure it out please tell me. thanks

You need to go to someone who can "decode" the radio.

The Audi Dealer can do it, but they are expensive.

Look though eBay, Google for someone local to you who does Radio Decoding.

You don't have the Code do you?

If so, you press TP and AS together, the display will change ot ----

Type in the code and viola.
