i had a 2006 A6 that was lemon law with same issue , it would go from comfortable 70 degree to scalding 180 degree , after many times in shop my dealer would not work on it any more , so i had to wait 45 days for audi tech to come , looking at my paper work it was a dual heater a/c valve unit had to be replaced , i can not tell you oh if that took care of the issue i hardly drove it after that and they tool it back ,
they could not or would not say if i had a potential fire hazard , good luck probably be cheaper to get rid of it if it is that problem ,

Hi Kgary I would like to send you a PM but my comp is not allowing to do anything. What is an TSB?

It is the abbreviation for a Technical Service Bulletin, which is how Audi advises its technicians on how to repair a known problem.

OK, it's years later, but would you mind telling me what the cause and the solution (cost?) was to fix this? It happened to me this week.

There is a TSB on this problem. Drop me a PM with your e-amil address, referencing the stuck ignition key, and I will e-mail you the TSB.

TSB - 96 08 07 doesn't seem to apply here :
The car is 2001 A6 Quattro 2.7T.
I can start the car and everything runs fine including locking/security system, brake switch / transmission interlocks etc. I simply can not remove the ignition key. Is this simply a mechanical problem in the ignition lock or something more sinister like a software problem in a steering column control module. How many reasons could Audi engineers have for not releasing the key?

While we're talking about 2005 A6's, are there any TSB's that address transmission hesitation?
I'd also be curious about the headlight TSB. My wife's A6 has given us that message a couple of times, though things continue to work fine.
#1141 of 1404 Headlight adjustment???
Apr 22, 2009 (6:52 am)
Does anyone know if the HID headlights can be adjusted at all? I've got an '04 A6 Quattro and the light on the driver's side seems to have a slighly lower aim than the passenger side light. Can the adjustment be made, if so...how???
