20 Most Recent 2006 Audi A3 Questions & Answers


Sounds like the point where it switches from Open Loop (equivalent to choke on carby cars) to Closed Loop.
In closed loop, the engine switches to using all the engine sensors to maximise engine efficiency.

The behaviour your describing is most likely an engine issue.
I'm thinking it may be the MAF sensor.

On conventional automatic transmissions on modern cars, the ECU and TCU work together to optimise shifts in the transmission. To do this smoothly, the ECU needs to know how much torque the engine is producing at any given moment. It uses the MAF for this.
An out of spec MAF will not throw a code unless it fails completely. It merely gives incorrect air flow readings which leads to incorrect fueling and rough shifts.

You may also be noticing higher fuel consumption, though it won't necessarily be noticeable.

You didn't mention the obvious, fuses. In many euro cars there are multiple fuses for each light circuit, side to side, and inside to outside, so check fuses, even if it looks good, they can still be bad. Switch with same amp and color fuse with any other same specs to narrow it down. Fuses can be tricky believe it or not, and I can't tell you how many times people overlook the obvious, even mechanics.
Good luck,

Replace the driver side window switch panel

You may have to replace the lock module on the door or the switch on the driver's side that locks the windows if they're connected to the child lock? Normally the child lock is a manual lever on the inside edge of the opened door.
Check your owner's manual. If the physical lever keeps moving you'll have to get inside the door and find out why it won't stay in position.

100 is the MAF sensor. 343 is the cam sensor. It need s to put on a scanner. I read numbers. Maf could be it, not likely. most likely you need a timing set.

my suggestion is to bring it to the dealer..Audis are notorious for the door panel clip breaking on removal. If you want to try it yourself be sure to purchase the clips ahead of time and ask the service dept to print out the instructions. They may or may not.

1. roll up the windows.
2. take it to a dealer and have them diagnose it for you and give you an estimate to fix.

I need more information to be able to help you

Wow this one's tough without being there...it could be either one that you mentioned, does it make the sound when driving or setting still. If it sounds like it's up high like in the dash, maybe a bearing that supports the steering column. Best thing would be to get it up on a lift and turn the steering wheel and look for the sound under the car to see where it's coming from..could be the rack teeth but most likely a bearing...good luck hunting

It could be the switch. But first pull the DRL (day time running lights) relay or fuse from the fuse panel. Check the lights again. If it still does it, replace the switch. If it works right, then you need to have the BCM (body control module) scanned to see what's wrong.

there is no connection between the coolant reservoir and the diesel tank. However when running diesel fuel becomes hot from the return fuel from the injectors that is used to cool and lubricate the injectors. Diesel tanks are vented to the atmosphere and so condensation forms in the tank when it cools down. This accumulates and is picked up and goes to the filter ( should have a water separator in the system) Left untreated a moss grows in the fuel which blocks filters and injectors Use a diesel fuel conditioner to control the rubbish A method of controlling water in the tank that is used by all long distance operators is to fill to the top every time before shutting down for the night.
