Question about 1999 Audi A6

1 Answer

The hazard warning lights are flashing, only way to turn them off is to to take out fuse which also stops central locking. I think it is water problems affecting the comfort control unit. How do I get to this unit to check ? online posts say it is under carpet in front passenger floor well. Dont want to rip up carpets until I know for sure !

Even if you rip up the carpet you have nothing to see as its a "black box"try reseting the alarm/immobiliser to see if that has any effect..

    I know this is the case, but i want to examine it, to see if there is water ingress causing this (common fault on this model) if there is water, odds on that this is the problem !!

Hazard and turn inter actors central locking fuel relise door

A Chilton's/Haynes repair manual that covers your vehicles year/make/model goes a long way to trouble shooting. Oh I do hate chasing gremlins. Had same problem with Kia Sephia. It's fuse panel has a slot marked "meter." Didn't give it any thought as just what would "meter" have to do with turn signals and hazard lights. (the other issues you list don't apply as this is an older model and quite basic, no power goodies.) Took it to shop (got tired of chasing gremlins). Repair person is the one that told me about "meter" fuse. If you have the owners manual it may have a fuse panel "map." Be aware that there is another fuse panel under the hood that has fuses and relays. As an end note, I'm now trying to figure out why that fuse keeps blowing. Oh bother.

How do i reset central locking on a micra 04 reg

Try the following:

The Central Door locking is controlled by the Multi-Remote Control system which controls
the door locking, door super locking and hazard reminder. When the doors are locked and
unlocked the unit flashes the hazard lights once for lock and twice for unlock.
A maximum of four remote controls are allowed to be programmed.
Ensure all the doors have been unlocked, either by using a good transponder key or remote
control plip key.
1. Turn the ignition switch from Position 0 to ON 6 times within 10 seconds.
2. Then turn ignition switch to OFF position. Leave key in ignition switch.
3. After 2 seconds, the system will enter programming mode and will flash the warning
lights twice.
4. Press and HOLD the unlock button on the Plip.
5. While pressing the unlock button, press the lock button 3 times.
6. Release the unlock button.
7. The warning lights will flash once to indicate successful programming.
8. Repeat procedure 4 to 7 for up to 4 plip key?s.
9. When completed turn ignition ON, and the warning lights will flash 2 times.
10. Remove key, and check all plip key?s for operation.
NOTE : The programming mode will stop when either the ignition is switch ON, 4 plip keys
have been programmed or no input signal either from the switch or plip keys has been received
for 120 seconds."
