Question about 2006 Audi A8

2 Answers

Voice Activation I just purchased a 2005 A8 and I dont understand how the voice activation works. I get in the car and press the voice button but can not get the car to do what I want it to. It does not reconize any of my commands. Also it keeps taking me on OnStar. Why?

Ref: Audi MMI : The voice commands are in the Operations manual for the MMI. The precondition for MMI Voice Control is a multifunctional Steering Wheel but this does not mean the car you purchased actually has Voice control installed. The easiest way to find out all of these unknown questions about your Used Audi is take your Vehichle ID document which contains the Chassis number, to an Audi dealer. Go to the parts department and ask them to print out a list of the equipment which was installed in your car when it was Manufactured. This list should not cost you anything, but then I purchased my Audi in Europe, the U.S. has it's own bowl of soup. If it's installed in your car, then it should be activated by pushing and holding the Voice button on the right side
of your steering wheel when the Ignition key is on and waiting for a voice/beep to indicated the status of the voice command feature.
There are also preconditions for activation in the users manual for MMI. Good luck.

I have a 2006 A8 and if you need help with the command say "help mmi" or when you are in one of the following modes: radio, CD, or Navigation. you can say "help ." This should provide you with all the commands the voice command can understand.

Service lights


Hi, if your 2006 Audi A6 service light is coming up, you have to reset it by following the instruction below..


If your instrument cluster has 2 knobs, one on each side (Older A4's, 1998-2004 A6's, TT's up to ~2006):
Press the right knob and hold it, turn the ignition on, release the right knob and press the left knob, the display should change to service in ----- miles. Or....


Press the right knob and hold it. Turn the ignition on and release the right knob and pull the left one. Then, push the right knob again and pull the left knob again. The display where the mileage is shown should change.


If your instrument cluster has a little wrench on a button on the right (2002-2008 A4's):
Press and hold the wrench button. Turn the ignition on, release the wrench button and press the 0,0 button next to it. The center display should change.


If you have a older body A8, you may be able to reset without a scan tool. Press the 0,00 button on the right of the cluster, turn the ignition on and release the 0,00 button and press the "M" or "Mode" button on the left and it should reset. If this does not work, or you have a 2004 or newer A8, it will probably require a scan tool.


If you have a much older or newer Audi, or certain A8's, you need a scan tool or a special made service light reset tool, available online. You can also purchase af, ter market software and a adapter lead for your laptop and use that. The reset tools will come with instructions. The After market software will go as follows:
On most older vehicles, enter vehicle self diagnosis. Go to #17: Instrument cluster. Go to adaptations, and change the following adaptation channel numbers to the number listed next to it, following the on screen prompts to save and accept.
Channel 5 --> 12
Channel 6 --> 24
Channel 7 --> 36
Channel 8 --> 72


If you have a A3, 2009+ A4, 2005+ A6 or 2004+ A8, or a Q7 and are using the after market software:
Go to guided functions, go to service work, go to reset service light, or something of that nature, and follow the on screen prompts.

How do I get in?


There should be a button to the left of the glove box that you can press and will release the glovebox. If this does not work your glovebox may be stuck as mine has done from time to time. I usually press on the button and place my hand on the back of the glovebox and pull lightly. This should get it open.

2005 audi a8 trunk + upgrades for ipod integration


I had exact same problem, but what I found out was a three step solution to the problem.
1) The trunk lock above the trunk lid tself - sometimes looses coiling retention for the lock to work properly, which in effect does not properly lock wrap around the pull down electronic unit located in the body of the car/trunk that catches and pull the trunk lid down SOLUTION: check and make sure lock is works properly. you cab check by opening trunk and locking it with remote key, then pry the lock with a screw driver to see if it unlocks or stays locked

2) The motor catching unit in the body of the car/trunk that catches the lid and draws it down can be off balance (sitting too low to catch the lock (upper trunk lid with lock) to pull it down and stay locked. Have a mechanic - Audi preferrably, check the positon and allignment to adjust it, so it can catch trunk lid and lock to stay locked. HOPE THIS HELPS!
