#589 of 1404 Help !! with 2003 Audi A6 2.7T
Dec 14, 2005 (10:55 am)
Bought a used 2003 A6 2.7T from a dealer about 3 weeks ago, the car is great, but I am experiencing a few problems, any help advice would be appreciated.
1. There is a vibration between 45mph and above, seems like wheel balancing, could it be something else?
2. the horn does not work, however the panic mode does sound off, and do does the wimpy one in the back when you alarm the car
3. A warning light went on, this was for the auto leveling headlights, but it went on only once, and now does not comeback, so is everything ok then?
Any ideas if the above items are covered by warranty? I have the Certified upto 100k warranty, the car has 52k miles on it right now.

Not sure about the vibration as it may be the tires, but all the other should absolutely be covered. Take it in and have the service advisor look at it.

Well, make this 4th time in 9 months my 05 A6 will be back to the dealer for the AirBag light. I am told all the usual things by Audi, they are opening a "hotline" blah blah...bottom line is, I'm beginning to wonder if this problem will ever be fixed, or is it a sign of a greater electrical problem...I get the impression this could be a serious problem, I've read about the Lemon Law in California, but does anyone think I would have a case? My car will have been out of service a combined 18-20 days as a result of this latest snafu. I love the car, but I hate this.

I had the same problem with mine a few weeks after I picked it up. It turned out to be a sensor in the rear seat. It has now been 9 months and the problem has not returned. Good luck.
#593 of 1404 Round navigation scroll wheel on the MMI has come loose
Dec 15, 2005 (9:37 am)
2005 Audi A6 3.2
The round navigation scroll wheel on the MMI has come completely loose (as in, it comes off in your hand) and needs to be repaired or replaced.
Can anyone advise if they have had (or heard) of this problem; and how long this type of repair will take and if they need the car over night?
#594 of 1404 Re: 2005 Audi A6 [arj1] Battery/Charging Problems
Dec 15, 2005 (10:07 am)
The reason that the battery drains in my A6 (2.4Se petrol) is that the brake lights come on overnight!
That's astonishing. How did you discover that?
There may be another reason too for the battery being weak. The A6 has software which controls when the battery is charged, and how soon the recharging process is commanded to commence.
I found this out after I kept noticing that the battery level indicator in the MMI would show that the battery was very low despite my having driven the car for one hour and a half -- more than enough time to charge it up past the levels the MMI screen displayed.
Audi did a software adjustment No problem since. This might have been covered in a TSB, not sure (Audi technical service bulletin).
In any event, you may want to ask your dealer whether or not your car's battery management software was checked during prior visits for service.
#595 of 1404 All Wheel Drive problems

I have a 1999 Audi A6. I used to have a Passat and it handled great in the snow. My Audi "fish-tails" on every corner even when I'm going really slow. It does not stop well at all. It seems like I may have problem with my AWD...does anyone know anything about this?
#596 of 1404 Extended Warranty

Has anyone found a good extended warranty company to use to Audi's. One that's not extremely expensive? Thanks!

Probably a tire selection. What are you currently using for tires?

Mine was a rear seat sensor as well, which fixed it the last time. Now, they are telling me they are getting different fault codes. Who knows, but at least I have an awesome 4 cylinder Chrysler Cirrus rattle trap to drive in the mean time!
