Can I reset the computer of my Audi A4 cabriolet B6 model,if yes ,what is the procedure.

Which computer (module) are you referring to?
Generally: disconnect the battery for 20 min. This often helps to reset the modules (computers).

Note: if not done, you should look for the radio code. Originally part of the paperwork that came with the car (often a rip out card in the operator manual). Some write it down in the manual. If the radio is without power for a long time, it may be required to enter the code again. If code is not available, the dealer can look it up by VIN number and serial number of the radio (need to remove radio typically to get the serial number).

No power going to my radio after changing battery. Wanted to check fuses for the radio but I bought the vehicle without an owners manual. I need a fuse diagram for 2004 Ford Expedition please. Thank you

Radio is usually wired as an accessories fuse on the panel. Is it possible there is power but you need to re enter the security code?
If you don't have the paperwork you may be able to get the code from an online site when you enter the make model serial number. It might cost a couple of bucks? Next time you disconnect the battery, make up a couple of leads with croc clips on, wire them to a small 12v battery and connect them to your batt leads before removing the main batt and the small battery will have enough power to keep your radio/ alarm etc working when the main batt is removed.

When you disconnect your battery and then reconnect itagain, it disables the radio. This is an anti-theft protection for your carradio.
The enable your radio the activation code is in your vehicle owner's manual. Ifyou do not have this code you need to go to your Ford servicecentre and get them to enter this code for you.

Took my factory radio out my 2006 hummer h3 went back to put it in hiked it back up only the lights come on the cd player . . . .not power on

The radio is in theft lock due to being disconnected from power, you (or the original owner) where given the code and instructions on entering it with the owners manual and other new vehicle paperwork. If you do not have this info contact any GM dealer for assistance with obtaining your unique radio security code.

I tried messing with the light switches in my car to cut the yellow lights and brake lights off. No matter what they will not cut off. I hit my keyless entry earlier to unlock the doors and Im thinking...

the thermostat will need to be changed. The light problem may be solved if you first get the code for your car stereo and then disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery for 30 seconds. This should reset the keyless entry system. It will also cause anti-theft stereos to shut down until the proper code is entered. Some car stereos have an anti-theft system where you must enter a code to get the stereo to work again after a loss of power. The code is usually in the paperwork you received when you purchased the car. It may be written down in the owner's manual. But have the code ready before you disconnect the battery.

Hi is it possible to get the pin code for a nissan almera reg;NL04 JVD, chassis No sjnfaan16u0485206, i need another key as there was only 1 with the car and no paperwork, thanks Jeff

The only way to get the PIN is to go into a Nissan dealership. Thing is they will definitely ask you for paperwork to prove ownership before they provide you with the information. You may have to go back to your place of purchase and get the necessary paperwork.
