problem #3

A6 6-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
The ABS light comes on steady, the hand brake light flashed constantly, and three warning beeps are heard. A computer reading says there is no connection with the ABS unit. The ABS doesn't work at all. It sometimes occurs when I first start the car, and sometimes after driving for a while. The consumer stated someone else was driving her vehicle and he/she rear ended another person. The consumer stated the ABS did not function as designed. Updated 12/16/10

Dash does not show important info to maintain the car properly. The digital letters have disappeared. I have no idea what's going on with my A-6.. the dealership told me that all Audi with that same feature has that same problem. Also there is a oil leak that is common in the same models as mine.
