#5905 of 6042 2002 Audi A4 1.8 T quattro
Aug 15, 2005 (5:24 pm)
I have been looking at this car and just had some questions. I saw in comsumer reports that only the 2002 really had any problems. See below:
Is the 2002 Audi A4 1.8 T quattro the lemon of the group or should I still seriously consider buying this car. Any help would be extremely helpful
Coolant leak: The oil cooler is prone to turning during oil filter removal, which causes damage to the coolant lines resulting in a coolant leak. (2002)
Electrical problem: Water leaks into wiring harness near the A-pillar causing assorted problems such as the remote will not lock/unlock the door, the windows won't work, the interior lights may stay on occasionally, and the door ajar warning may glow even though the doors are shut. (2002)
None: The throttle body control valve tends to sludge up on the 1.8L turbo engine causing a very low or uneven idle. (2002)

I need some help. I am looking to replace my original car speakers with some aftermarket ones. Does anyone know the speaker size information for the 02 A4 sedan? I've looked everywhere on the internet and even called the dealers but apparently no one knows the speakers' size not even Crutchfield. ... if anyone knows this information, it would really help!
#5908 of 6042 Self-Leveling Xenon Controller (?)
Sep 30, 2005 (12:44 pm)
Does anyone know what the actual "official" name for the thing that controls the self-leveling xenon headlights? It is a "box" that's about 4"-5" cubed that's right behind the headlights under the hood.... There is a group of wires terminated with a clip that goes to it. Anyone know what this thing is called? I'm looking for a replacement, but I don't know the name of the thing to search for..... Thanks!

I should clarify that to say "under the hood, behind the headlight assembly" (not just the actual bulb itself).... Thanks in advance!

i've dealt with a lot of these controllers, (my dad owns a autobody shop) and i believe it might just be called a igniter, or starting box, if you call a audi/ vw dealership they will prolly be able to tell u

Hello everyone, I just bought a sweet '99 2.8(not quatro) tip, as a second car, but was wondering what chip most people recommend,can I install it myself or whats involved and can I somehow put litronics or Xenons on this car? Also, where can I get a used or reasonabally priced car cover for a '99 A4? Thanks in advance, and I'm happy to be part of the group!

I have to exact same problem with my A3 TDI. Did you get an answer to this problem? Any advise would be much appreciated.

Just got a 99 A4. Cool car and all that, but I recently had a dead battery issue. I tried to jump it using another car which turned on but I had to replace it because it was completely drained. I installed the new battery, but now the engine rpm is not holding steady at idle. When the car is warmed up and in "park", the rpm oscillates up and down and sometimes it turns off. Otherwise it drives fine. Did I damage anything electronic? Need your help and thanks in advance.
