2000 Audi A4. Consumer writes in regards to the ovd 2 unit in Audi and VW vehicles the consumer stated the problem involved the ovd 2 unit which communicated the smog test results to the computer and dmv. Although, the vehicle would pass the emissions test, there would be a communication error. The dmv required the communication and made no exception. The root of the problem stemmed from the ovd 2 unit placed into the radio. When the radio is replaced with a non Audi or VW radio the ovd 2 unit is no longer there. The consumer was informed the price to replace the radio containing the ovd 2 unit is $1000 and up.
