If the airbag light in your Audi A6 does not switch off it indicates a problem within the airbag module. You will need to hook up an airbag code reader to find out where the problem is. More often than not it will be a loose connection behind the door card or seat. We recommend you use the iCarsoft i908 Audi OBD code reader kit to diagnose the Audi airbag trouble code or Audi airbag problem code. Once the code and problem have been reset the kit will allow you to remove the airbag light from the dashboard.

Audi A6 ABS Dash Light - the ABS light will show up on your Audi A6 when your ABS system develops a fault. This ABS warning light generally illuminates when an ABS sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced. There are 4 sensors within your Audi A6 which could well need to be replaced but which one? You need to use a diagnostic tool which reads the ABS system such as the iCarsoft i908 Audi OBD code reader. Once the correct ABS sensor has been removed the lights can be removed from the dashboard.

If the light remains illuminated it means there is a malfunction within the engine management system and needs to be looked at straight away - any further delay could be causing damage to your Audi engine. You need to use a diagnostic code reader such as the iCarsoft i908 Audi OBD code reader kit which will read out any Audi trouble codes or Audi problem codes which will give you a better idea of where the problem is located - it could be anything from a camshaft sensor, crankshaft sensor, injector problem or in need of a mass airflow meter replacement. Once the problem has been rectified and the trouble codes have been cleared the light will turn off.

Audi A6 parkbrake warning light

Audi A6 parking brake warning light (RED) - the warning lamp lights up when the parking brake is applied with the ignition on. After the ignition has been switched off the lamp will stay on for about 30 seconds. The warning lamp will light up for about 30 seconds if the parking brake is applied with the ignition switched off.

The warning lamp should go out when the parking brake is released. If the warning lamp flashes continuously after the parking brake has been applied, the brake may not be strong enough to hold the vehicle on a slope. This may be due to the brakes overheating.

Please note the following points:

• If the gradient is too steep to park the vehicle safely, the display will show the message Caution: Vehicle parked too steep.

• In the event of a fault in the parking brake system the symbol will also appear in the instrument cluster display together with the message Parking brake! You should have the fault corrected by a qualified workshop without delay.
