'02 A6 Bad/No Idling

Yesterday when turning over the ignition, In released the key a little too early and the engine turned over, bud did not start. I shut the iginition off, waited a minute and then re-started. The car ran very rough and could not maintain constant idle when stopped. Both the ESP and MIL lights are now on after starting. This morning I cleaned out the filter and the car started easily and held idle fine for 4-5 minutes before putting the car into gear. Once on the road, the car accelerated poorly and the idle goes from 900 RPM to 100 RPM when stopped with the brake on or in park. Vacuum problem? Fuel pump? Injectors? The car has 99.6K miles & just had the plugs, water pump, and timing belt changed at 92K. Please help!

1999 grand prix with an automatic starter yesterday has been starting and driving just fine----yesterday went to start car by turning the key and wouldn't turn over just made a clicking sound. Can not turn...


it's sound like you have a electrical problem between your ignition and the auto start. To get the key out underneath the sterring column there is a little square tab that you can pull off. after you remove it you can push a button in that hole and it will release your key.

I1995 audi a6 quattro ignition switch does not return automatically to start position - i have to manually turn the key back 1/4 turn. can this be fixed, lubed or something?


Some can be repaired the first thing is to try a little wd40 in the key hole and work key in ignition, the spring back action is done by the switch not the ignition cylinder locjk, but if the lock binds up it will cause it not to return, so start with the lube, after a few days if it still doesnt return then remove covers and replace the switch on the back of key switch. hope this helps, most of the time the lube works.

02 grand am no fuel pressure and security light not on. relay is good


Your Passlock may need to relearn the ignition keys, if the ignition lock has gone bad like my in-laws Grand Am Gt, here is what i did so they will not get stranded any more. Buy a Passlock by pass module for around $70.00. You can orderone from GMPASSLOCK.COM in the mean time try resetting the Passlock. Good luck

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

Switch won't come back after engine starts I got the switch out and the accuator seems to be sticking, how do you get accuator out


This vintage Ford has notorious problems with weakening springs in the ignition assembly, allowing the ignition to remain in the start position even after the engine is started. Common problems with this issue is the starter continuing to grind after key is released, and electrical accessories not functioning when key is released. Simple fix: Gently turn key back just a little after engine starts, allowing the ignition switch to stay where it should be if it were to return on it's own. Better fix: Replace ignition cylinder. Not a bad idea, especially since this year Ford has a seperate key for the doors anyway, not requiring a rekeying of the door locks. Hope this helps. Sometimes a thorough cleaning of the ignition linkage/assembly with compressed air will clean years of dust off of the factory greased parts.

When I start my Audi A6 Quattro, a warning light goes on which says Inspect. I don't have a manual. What to do?


It doesn't mean there's a problem. That inspection message is based on miles driven, not on any problem that the car has detected. On my A4, the "service oil" message pops up every 5000 miles. I just turn it off because I do my oil changes more often than that and the message does not coincide with my intervals.

On the A4 (and I suspect the same on your A6), to turn off the message, put the key in the ignition. On the gauge cluster, there are two stalks. Hold down the left one and turn the key to full electrical power (right before you'd crank the engine). Still holding in the left stalk, pull out on the right one and the message should change to "- - - -". Release the right stalk, turn the key off, and then release the left stalk. Turn the key back on and the message should be gone.

It may take a couple tries, but once you get it right, you'll be good to go for another (probably) 5000 miles.

Program a remote key for 03 A6


I have an A4 and did this to re-program my key:

1. used the key to start the car...then turned it off
2. put the key in the driver door (door closed)
3. pressed the lock button on the key fob once
4. turned the key to lock the door.

This is basically the steps in the owners manual, but the car must be started with the key first, and the key must be in the door lock before pressing the lock button.

Starter switch. Plastic and cheap, my 98 A6 did the same thing... I replaced thousands in parts, turned out to be a cracked ignition switch which is a very common Audi problem!

No sweat. This is a periodic reminder that your car is due for some sort of servicing, usually based on mileage. It may say "service oil" or "inspection" or some other indication along those lines. This is not related to a check-engine light, which tells you that you have something wrong with your car. The inspection reminders are manually resettable with the small stalks on the instrument cluster, and are meant to be reset each time a service interval is reached and that service is completed.

On my A4, the reset is this way: with the ignition off, hold down the stalk on the right, by the odometer, and turn the key on (don't start the engine). The display goes to "------". Pull out on the other stalk to reset it. Turn the key off, and release the right-hand stalk. When you turn the key back on, the indicator should be cleared. It may be different on your A6, but try it that way and see if that clears it.
