Question about 1999 Audi A6

1 Answer

Problem: A co-worker has a 1999 Audi A6 Quattro. Her directionals stopped working and she's had to resort to manually moving the switch arm (the hazards work fine, though). Someone on the internet suggested the problem is the relay, since the switch works manually. She bought a new relay with the intention of replacing it herself, but can't find where it's located in the car. Questions: Does this car have separate relays for the directionals and the hazards? Does the problem sound like the directional switch is bad or the relay? If it is the relay, where is it located and how difficult is it to replace? Also, someone told her if she does replace the relay herself, she'll still need to take it to a garage to have the instrument panel lights reset(?) True/untrue? (She said they flash on and off as she's driving down the road.) Thanx, Cap

1999 AUDI A6 avant 2.8L quattro. Car vibrates


This is a manual transmission? If so the clutch probably needs to be replaced. When you say "VIOLENTLY" what is going on, what is the road speed, what are the RPMs at? The more specific information the better. And this problem ONLY occurs between gear changes, right? The other times, everything is normal?

Starting problem on my audi a6 2.8 quattro,,, i need help


Sounds like the gas presser valve or weak fuel pump. When it dose it again turn the switch on and leave it on for about 3 mins. and see if it will start. If it dose I would say the pump is weak.

Start your car, then unplug the battery. if it dies, your alternator may need to be checked at an automotive parts store for it may be bad. If it runs, your battery has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.

Audi Quattro A6 will not go into drive


It's the brake pedal switch. There is a switch down on the pedal arm that closes when you press the pedal down, and sends a sensing voltage to the controller, telling it the brakes are applied. This allows the transmission lock to disengage so you can shift out of Park. When that switch fails, the lock won't disengage. You need to replace that switch and you'll be fixed.
