Audi A6 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

A good place to start is the brake light switch.
There are 2 circuits in there: 1 for the brake lights and the other for the car computer (ESP, Engine brake etc...)
If the brake switch has an intermittent fault, the EPS light may come on and the car may run rough until you stop the vehicle and remove the key. It then re-set itself until the next time you are using the brakes and the fault appears again.

One likely possibility why the engine loses power and stalls could be because of the air compression rate going from the engine air filter and the engine, which is the AIR MASS METER HOSE located between the air filter box and the engine, which could be cracked. This happens when a careless mechanic changes the engine air filter without untightening the ring that holds the hose to the air filter box, causing the hose to be twisted to the point of breakage. It is not immediately apparent, but checking its condition would be the first thing to do.

Remove the spark plugs and measuring the distance through the plug holes with a rod, very gently turn the crankshaft (either way) until you are certain all the pistons are well below tdc and then gently bring the camshaft(s) to the timing position, followed by bringing the crank to the timing position.

there are actually special tools the cam has no timing marks the tool only goes on one way and locks the cams in place and it is actually a long process but there is no way to do it without the cam lock

Check all of the documentation which came with the vehicle as it's normally written down somewhere, often a previous owner may even have written it inside the glovebox.

Otherwise, you'll need to contact an Audi dealer with proof that you own the vehicle. They'll also need either the VIN (chassis number) or if the radio is not the original one fitted to the code you'll need to take the unit itself along.

If you ask very nicely, they may give the code to you but most will charge. In practice, if you're buying other spare parts or having any work done which costs around the same or more than the fee for providing the code then you'll normally get it for free. If you don't, then politely remind them that you can take your money elsewhere.

You have a open maxi fuse or a fuseable link you will need to start at the battery terminal and look for a open fuseable link,from there inspect the starter for a open fuseable link, the inspect the engine junction fuse box for any open maxi fuses

How do you know motor is fine, you jumped a wire across from battery to motor? if what you say is correct then it has to be the wiper control switch, if when u jump wire across and motor turns but not wipers the the attachment from motor to wiper assembly is stripped, disassemble and find if it's shaft or plate that's stripped happens when people don't clean windows off from snow ice and just turn wipers on.

1. Jack the car up on Axel stands/ramps or if you have access to a pitit will make life a little easier. 2. You need to remove the splash guard underneath the car so you can seethe back of the gear box. 3. Drain the gear box of oil which will require a special tool which youcan get for £10 from Draper Expert 1/2 Square Drive Drain Plug Key For VW Or Audi63476 Draper Hdpk1. 4. Remove the electronic cable that connects onto the ECU that protrudesout the back of the back of the gear box. 5. The back of the gearbox has 12 torques holding the cover in place.Once you have removed most of them you will need to remove the rear enginemount to get at the last torque bolt at the top of the gear box. 6. Support the gear box with a trolley jack so you can lower the gearboxto get at the last few torques. 7. The rear engine mount can be slid towards the back of the car so youcan get at the back of the gear box. There is a couple of other bolts that youwill need to remove that hold the ECU cable in place. 8. Once you have all the torques that hold the gearbox in place thecover can be slid off. 9. Once the cover is removed be careful not to bend the metal gasket asit can be used again as long as it's not damaged (Audi would probably changethis along with the ECU seal). 10. Once the cover is off you can now see the ECU which is held in placeby 3 torques or Star bolts. 11. After the 3 torques have been removed you can then slide the ECU offbut be careful not to bend or tilt it as you remove it from the gearbox as ithas guide rails made of plastic which can break easily.
