#1613 of 2367 2002 audi a4 cvt problems
Sep 08, 2007 (5:37 pm)
hello, I have a 2002 audi a4 1.8t cvt. The PRND display fails to show what gear its in after engine temperature is optimal. It will not show for about 15 to 20 minutes of driving and then it will blink(almost flicker) and then turn on and work showing what gear im in. When it does not display gear my shift tronic does not work. Reverse does not work. If i put the car in park it display P. but will not display any other gear if shifted. When this happens and the car is stoped i can put it in nuetrol for about 3 seconds and switch to drive or reverse and then the PRND starts to flash. When flashing reverse works and so does the shift tronic. After driving for about 15 minutes with the flashing I will stop the car and put it in park and the rpm jumps to about 1500 then down below 1000 then to about 1000rpm and the flashing stops and the car works. displays what gear, reverse works and so does the auto stick. Its so weird but it happens all the time and started originally around 50,000 miles. the car has about 52k now. I used the vag com system and got the following codes out *17090 – Transmission Range Sensor (F125): Implausible Signal*P0706 – 35-10 - - - Intermittent*18032 – MIL Request Signal Active (Check TCM for errors tool)*P1624 – 008 – Implausible Signal* I was told by mechanincs that it could be a broken TCM or multiswitch.(Dealer repairs only) Does anybody know about this problem. Please HELP!! The dealer wants $2200 for new tcm. I would hate to pay that. Thanks

You've probably found out what your problem was by now, but I had that same problem at about 45K miles and the service rep. asked me if I was using gas from places such as Costco, Arco, etc. I said, "Who, ME?" she said only use the "Top Tier gas," which is like Shell, Chevron, etc. I haven't had that problem again YET.

I also had my 99 Passat towed to the dealer. They replaced the Power stage unit and I was charged $680. I was told the Power Train warranty does not cover this...is this correct?

Hi - welcome to CarSpace! That person hasn't been around for several years so you might want to try asking in the Passat Maintenance and Repair discussion. Good luck - hope we can help.

We always use "top tier" gas. We usually run midgrade finding that the performance and gas mileage is just fine with gas that is 5% less expensive. We fill up with premium occasionally & do not detect a difference.
We took it to the dealer & they did not hear the noise, but ordered a fuel filter (at least in part based on the imput I receive from this forum) anyway. A week later, my wife heard the noise & took it in. They said sounds like fuel filter issue. Scheduled to be replaced under warranty this week. Will let everyone know after a month or two if the noise stops
#1618 of 2367 2004 A4 oil problem, need help.
Sep 13, 2007 (2:39 pm)
I have a 2002 A4 with just over 90,000 miles. I have had issues with my oil level. I have had it in several times and they never find a leak. Just took it in again and they did an oil consumption test on it and still couldn't find the problem. The tech at the dealer called Audi of America and they advised him that 1 - 1.5 quarts used in 1000 miles was acceptable. The tech disagreed. I called Audi of America and they told me the same thing, I am going to have to watch the oil level every 1000 miles and then add if necessary. Has anyone had this type of problem? Please help.

I have the same problem, its a A4 2003 Cabriolet, I have extended warranty, but the dealer refuses to honor it. I will complain to Audi directly about this. This is definitely a craftsmanship defect. And you can't even repair it, becuase the glass uses a special glue/press machine. You need to replace the whole top.

Let's share experiences right here in the discussion rather than take the conversations to email. That way all can benefit and you have a better chance of getting feedback.

I have the same problem with my 2003 A4 cabrio. I have extended warranty. But I haven't taken it to Audi yet. Now i'm wondering what they're going to say. I guess this is a common problem with convertibles. I really don't want to have the top changed.
have a great day
