    i dont think its the battery- everything in the car works fine and the gauge shows a full charge on the instrument panel. i think it has something to do with the alarm and/or the remote, which has probably been dead for sometime. does something need to be reset? can i bypass the alarm/ remote?

    after running fine and being shut off, turning the key back on, not even the instrument panel lights will lite up. just totally dead. but it will jump start right up!

SOURCE: Have an audi a4 1.8T Cabrio. Battery went dead,

I had the exact problem with my A4 2001 1,9 TDI but i just turned the car on, then first turned the steering wheel to the left as far as it goes, then to the right (i dont know if this is necessary but this is what i did). After i drove for few meters,the light went off and it worked normally.

SOURCE: Jumped started Audi 2001 TT, due to dead battery, now radio dead

You will need to enter the anti theft radio lock code. I would check the manual for the operation. On my VW it was on a sticker in the truck. Also check with an Audi dealer for exact location.

SOURCE: can i jump start an audi a6 2005

On the 2005 Audi A6 3.2 (6 cylinder) the battery is stored in the right rear trunk, under the trunk floor lid. Note: To jump start the car, you simply raise the engine hood, and look in the upper left corner of the engine compartment, just slightly below the plastic cover. There you will see connections that lead to the battery and are specifically designed for jumping (or charging) the battery. You will need to lift up gently on a reddish brown cover which is protecting the positive terminal. The negative terminal (black) is not covered.
Under no circumstances should you attempt to jump the battery directly. The battery could explode and you could get sulfuric acid on your face and in your eyes, which would be bad. Very bad.

Why wouldn't it start/restart?


When you got the jump start, you were able to drive while the alternator tried to charge the dead battery. After you stopped at the other end, the battery died completely and may have shorted internally, which explains why your vehicle could not be jump started again. Obviously, that very dead battery will havet o be replaced.

Why does my battery keep dying in my audi 1997 a6? When it's running and the fan kicks on the voltage meter jumps down. When the lights are on and then fan kicks on my lights dim.


The battery seems to have reached end of design life. Replace. Also check charging system for voltage. With engine idling check voltage at battery terminals. It should be about 14 volts.

Reversed polarity on jump start. now wont go into gear or hold charge


OLder cars YEs you can jump it without a battery. But in newer cars that use computers and advanced Eltronic ignition/timing/ful injection you have to have power to the cars computer. without a good battery the car will not run.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2004 A6. 3L. I seems as the battery is not charging. I could drive for say two hours. Go into a shop, leave the car radio on for the children. come out and the car is dead. I need to get jump...


sounds like the alternator is not charging the battery, when it doesnt start are you sure the battery is dead, i know you jump it but a faulty starter can od that also, if there are no inside lights or radio or headlights dont come on then its the battery and its defective or the alternator is not charging all the time may be bad,good luck hope this is helpful.

Audi A6 2006 problem with battery


Yes
First thing is to test the battery and this is how Turn on head lights, if dull leave on to see how long the stay on for. Next turn lights off put battery on charge for 6 hrs .Turn on lights again if still dull either battery or charger no good
If lights bright try to start and when starter trys to turn engine over the lights go dim THEN battery is no good.
Then get a jump start from another battery and put pos term on both batterys first, then earth lead(BLACK) on last then start if starts ok remove the BLACK lead and turn on head lights if goes bright ALTERNATORs ok so replace battery ....

1999 Audi A6 Quattro will not run over 1500 RPMs.


Start your car, then unplug the battery. if it dies, your alternator may need to be checked at an automotive parts store for it may be bad. If it runs, your battery has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.
