I have an 03 A6 2.7T with the Navigation controls where the owners manual says the controls should be for setting up the on board computer. How do I turn off the service light and access the menu controls?
Also how much mileage on a full tank should I be getting with the 2.7T?
#941 of 1407 Keyless Entry Remote – New Batteries – Now what?
Dec 15, 2007 (9:38 am)
My keyless entry remote had worked fine since I bought my 99 Audi A6 2.8 liter 3 years ago. All of a sudden, the remote stopped working. I figured that the batteries are out and so I went and replaced them with the same but new batteries.
The keyless entry remote is still as dead as it was with the old batteries.
My question is:
Does any one know if there is anything else I need to reset? Can it be a fuse or something similar? What did you have to do resolve this problem yourself and without going to the dealer

They are the pits! We had some snow Thurs. night (I know, 5" and within a 6 hours) - and the wipers clogged. Then never finished the cycle - and stopped. (Had to be the driver's side!) So- I called the dealer - "Oh - we had many of those calls today - come in 1st thing Mon a.m. -all set". Well - not a "nut tightening" as suggested - a "linkage" - $605** - an "outside influence" - what?? snow? and this car is built in Germany?
(**yes- car still in warranty). Oh well- it happened to Honda and Toyota, too - accordiong to this multi-line dealer.
Any comments?? T.K

Does anyone know the cause of the trip recorder continually returning to zero accompanied by the dashboard light flickering?

I bought the A6 quattro on the 28th too, and on Sat, I see the signal lights flashing when I went to the garage and the dash also turned on abs etc. Whats wrong here? Had to take it to the dealer after jump starting it. They said they have to look into it have the battery checked out. Funny thing is when I went to buy it the dealer had the car engine running he said it just came from the other dealer and they just checked it out but I think they knew it before selling it to me and didn't say a word.

The Audi A6 is a car to be leased for 3 years under warranty and then returned to the dealer. I made the unfortunate decision to buy a 2000 A6 2.7T new and if the extended warranty was not purchased, the car would have bankrupted me. Bought new for $42,500 and sold in 06 w/ 100,000 miles for $11,500. Devaluation is probably about average for this type of car. Considering that Audi is an "engineering company" with features that are cutting edge, some of the problems I encountered were indeed baffling:
....wheel shake when braking
....4 time replacement of front discs
....heater squeal in wintertime
....valve cover/cam chain gasket leaks
...alarm failure w/ signal lights flashing/windows going up/down on their own
....amazingly high normal maintenance charges from dealer
....driver's side key lock failure
....twin turbo failure even w/frequent synthetic oil changes
Your problem is problably the alarm system failing, which affects the entire electronic operation of the car. Make sure you have a good warranty while owning this car!
