A6

  • 58,000 miles
O-ring failure in 2012 A6 3.0 caused the transmission to internally leak fluid causing the electonic system to go bad. All of the following lights came on when issue started. Check engine light, gearbox, mil trac control, mil epc, light airbag mil hi-speed cooling fan mil tire pressure warning light the transmission would not shift, major lack of power to engine. Parking brake would also activate by itself. Instrument panel light up like a X-mas, when I pulled over the car shut off and would not turn back on.
