Yes, it is! The Data Link Connector (DLC) - car diagnostic plug is placed on back side between driver and passenger seats, on bottom back side of armrest under a plastic cover of ashtray. Under cover near back ashtray is a small plastic cover hidding DLC.

Have 97 a4 Needs auto trans reflashed. took to garage that did it once before and they said they couldnt get access inside computer with there machine


Any programming like that is done with VagCom through the OBD2 diagnostic port. If they have VagCom, they should be able to do it. I'd advise you to deal only with an independent shop that specializes in European cars, as they're much more likely to have familiarity with such work. Don't go to a dealer unless it is necessary - they're far more expensive than an independent shop.

How turn off air bag light on audi a4


It has to be done with VagCom diagnostic software or a VagCom scanner. If you have a laptop computer, go to www.ross-tech.com and download VagCom version USB409. Go on eBay and order a USB to OBD2 cable (just search for Audi A4 diagnostic cable) for about $25. Then you'll have the software and can do this (and a lot more) by yourself. If it's irritating you badly, you'll have to take it to a shop to do this (and probably pay 1/2 hr to 1 hr service rate for this 4 minute procedure). If you can wait until your cable arrives, you can do it yourself. Having the light on will not harm anything, nor will it keep the airbags from working.

A4 airbag sensor


A4s are known for airbag lights due to the bag in the side of the driver's seat. The yellow connector under the seat gets stretched and opens up partially if you move the seat too far. It's just a quick opening but it's enough to trip the light. In mine, I ziptied the connector tightly together, then turned off the light (you need the VagCom diagnostic software for this).

Audi a4 autotransmission change fluid


The automatic cars (at least the tiptronics, which came out in 98) require the transmission to be up to a specific temperature, which must be monitored while changing the fluid - this requires VagCom, the VW/Audi diagnostic software (I'm not making this up). I am not sure whether the non-tiptronic cars had to have this as well or if it can be done as any other transmission - best bet is to call a European specialty mechanic and ask them - a dealer will kill you with labor rates. Do not just drain and refill though, without finding out first whether the VagCom procedure must be used.
