    Wifey called me at work to advise that her 1996 A4 alarm goes off in the parking lot. Once last week, then again this week, then 3 times yesterday.

I also had the same problem and mine too was usually because I had either a window or the sunroof slightly open. If it is summer and you need to leave them open slightly or if you have a pet in the car then heere is a great tip. There is a small square button near the bottom of the door pillar to the right of the drivers seat and if you press this before locking the car it will set the alarm for the whole car with the exception of the main cabin so movement will not set the alarm off. The locks, boot, ignition etc all stay alarmed until you switch it off.

Hi , Im looking for a handbook/ users manual for Audi A4 2005 2.0 tdi avant. Anyone know where I can download one? Thanks


You can look for Haynes Repair Manual for your car, they are mostly sold on any auto repair shops or auto zones, or order it online. I'm not sure if you can find any pdf format of it though. Hope this helps

Why would an audi a4 boot alarm keep sounding. Does it matter that the spare wheel has been taken out for repair?


Audi A4 1.8T Avant 190 S-Line Quattro. Rear washer is leaking down the inside of the bootlid, and as it is right in the centre it is running down on to the boot catch and causing the boot catch sensor to think the boot is open when it isnt.

Can anyone tell me how to get the panelling off the inside of the boot lid and also, if i dry out the motor and reconnect the pipes etc, will everything come right??

Dash light won't stop flashing 1 mpg what could this be?


I don't have my manual with me but that is a self-set speed warning. Essentially, you can set an "alarm" to go on when your car reaches a set speed...to alert yourself that you should slow down. To reset the speed alarm, go to the desired speed and hold down the "check" button. Otherwise, just look it up in your manual. It's fairly easy to fix....
