  6. A6 avant parking sensors

    On my A6 (4f/C6)... before I bought VCDS... I found info on the web, that if you put your ear to each PDC sensor the one's which makes a clicking noise are working the one's which are silent do not work... On mine I just put car in reverse, engine does not need to be started, just ignition need to be in last position before engine start initiate...
  7. Early C6 - any issues to look out for

    Tiptronic is supposed to be more reliable than Multitronic... May have just been a bad one... I know someone who had a Multitronic on an 09 A6 2.0 TDi that was replaced at 30K under warranty, he owned from new... But a lot of people got Multitronic without issues as well... Maybe we just hear about the bad ones on a forum... You would think Audi would drop it if bad...

  9. Mirror dip in reverse?

    Hi, I have an A6 (C6 4F)... Mirror does tilt on reverse... without memory package... does remember only tilt setting per key... I have Std.elec seats, from factory my car had come with elec.folding/adjust/heated/dimming side mirrors... But the one on passenger side had a memory mirror on it... which has 7 wires to the mirror adjusting motor vs 3 wires to mirror adjusting motor... Once I did code change in module [52] +128 to enable memory mirrors... All work good for me...
