If it is the display for the gears flashing, this indicates a fault with the gearbox system, this is more common on multitronic gearbox's

SOURCE: audi a4 1.8t windows, interior light wing mirrors not working

Folks, Just found my problem ...... There's a flexible conduit (corrugated rubber sleeve) between the driver's door and the door arch which contains the wiring loom for the drivers door central locking/door speaker/electric windows/mirrors etc....discovered when I slipped off the sleeve that 4 cables in the wiring loom had broken due to repeated flexing when drivers door was opened/closed over the years (2001 Audi A4). Resoldered broken wires and insulated same....now working better than ever again ...ie dashboard back lighting seems brighter than it had been for some time? Also drivers door loudspeaker is back in action again (hadn't noticed that it had gone).
It's kinda difficult to reseat the rubber sleeving correctly after the repair job...will probably use some silicone sealant on the sleeve to ensure that there is no water ingress to wiring loom afterwards. I'm not too impressed with Audi design people after that, should have used cable that has a better flexibility rating (esp on drivers door!).

Paul.

If it's an analog clock, pull out on the stalk closest to it (the small one protruding from the cluster), and then turn it to the right - that will advance the clock.

What does a light on the dash mean that flashes yellow,has a pic of a car and a key with a line tru it.audi a4 96plate


Katielouiser I have the same icon come on each time i start my 1996 Audi A4 and if I don't wait till it goes off before starting the car it will immobilise the engine soon after starting. But if I wait till it goes off before proceeding with starting, the engine will continue to run till I stop and turn the ignition off- only to repeat this all over again when I have to drive somewhere again. It can be a pain when ones in a hurry, and embrassing to say the least when you have passengers.

My 1997 audi a4 the ignition key is stuck. what


OK first thing- Car has to be in park to pull the key from the ingnition. if it is and you still cant pull it, rock the wheel back and forth alittle (sometimes the columb lock doesnt lock properly and you cant release the key until it locks, rocking the wheel usually fixes this problem). and the last possibility is that the tumblers in your ignition have broken, when this happens you cant pull the key from the ignition because you cant turn the key back to the off possition all the way. when this happens you don't want to pull the key because you risk not being able to put it back in the ignition later and are forced to replace the ignition so you can drive your car. However if the tumblers are indeed broken you will have to replace the ignition anyway, atleast by leaving the key in it you can still drive the car until its replaced

Car will turn over but not start.97 audi a4 1.8


It sounds like you don't have quite enough juice to start it. Sometimes vehicles will turn over but won't start when battery is low. Have someone jump you with jumper cables and I bet it will start then have your battery tested. If it won't start try giving it a shot of starter fluid as well as jump starting it and this will probably do the trick. If not you will have to have it diagnosed professionally. Good Luck

On my '99, this is the procedure:

Put the key in the ignition. Press and hold the left reset "stick" on the cluster, then turn the key to full electrical power. Pull out on the right "stick" and the display will turn to all dashes like this: ---- Turn the key off, then release the left stick, and restart the car and it should be reset.

A4 Turns over, but won't start


hi. when u insert ur key and turn to on position with out it turning over check the light display and see if the light flashes with the car&key symbol if that is the case then it is a problem on the key and the imobiliser is not disabling properly have the batteries changed in the key or your key might need reprogramming.
