No I am a mechanic at Audi. The problem is that the the air flow to the central tappets may be causing the air flow sensor to trip and that is why. Try putting a small amount of WD40 into the petrol and that will work, its a very common problem.

I think on top of the transmission, the one has a wire, and looks like a sensor. To remove, need a 19mm , open wrench or socket wrench.

SOURCE: I own a Audi a4 multitronic 2005. Recently i'v had

I'm having a similar problem with my '05 A4 Multitronic with 75,000 miles on clock. PRNDS lights are all blocked out but not flashing (which I believe is worse). Car is driving ok after I had the EGR valve replaced by dealer at cost of £454. Dealer quoted me a further £1,077 to fit new gearbox ECU. Found a few websites that claim to be able to repair the ECU, best one seems to be www.BBA-Reman.com who quoted £169 +VAT + carriage. You do however need someone to take off and fit repaired ECU, had quotes ranging from £150 - £250 + £60 for 6L of new gearbox oil. However, I have been told by 3 independent garages that specialise in Audi's, BMW's & Merc's etc that they cannot be fixed, so I'm a little sceptical. To summarise the cheapest quote I've had for a new ECU fully fitted is from a garage on Tyneside (where I live) called Swift Motors 0191-2140056 who said they'd be able to do the lot for £860. Only bought car in February, absolutely love it, but sick as f**k at this unexpected cost which I can't afford. Had to take payment holiday from mortgage to cover the costs. Should have stuck with my old Ford Focus!! If anyone can offer any other tips I'd like to hear.

I have an Audi 2.6 E Cabriolet. The dash shows a flashing red light for the brakes, which according to the manual means low fluid level. Level is ok and the float switch also checks out ok. Solutions...


I had the same problem but weirdly enough I topped up my Hydrolic fluid and it suddenly stop flashing Perhaps it is a short circuit on my Audi 2.6 E Cabriolet or it actually picks up both brake fluid and Hydrolic fluid with the same light

You need to get into a transmission shop right away. The fluid/filter may just need to be changed, or it could go way beyond that.

Where can I find a fuse diagram?


The emergency flasher switch contains the relay for the turn signals as well. I work for an Audi dealer. This has been the problem since day one. If both signals don't work, it's the relay. You'll need to buy a new emergency flasher switch. Head to a dealer. They will know exactly what it is. It's not a very expensive part either.

When indicating to turn right, it flashes faster than normal. Is the bulb on it's way out and needs replacing or the does the flasher unit need replacing?


hi staki
dave here

if you turn on your right turn indicator and walk around the car you will likely find one of your bulbs are out or that your brake light is out on the right side. if all your indicators flash have someone press the brakes while you check the light.
