Help Need multiple issues
I just purchased a 2005 Audi A8L Quadtro , model with older grill design. I did not get any manuals with it and the option sticker has been torn off in the trunk. Can anyone answer any of the following questions for me and give me some much needed guidance? I am sorry if this is a repost as I am sure some of my issues have been covered in other forums, however in the interest of keeping postings to a minium, and since I am sure that someone out there has Vast Audi knowledge, I'm including it all in one post. I have had BMWs before and this is my first AUdi and my wife now wants to trade her Mercedes ML for an A4.
1: THe MMI unit has the phone option, and there is some type of connectors under armrest, but I do not have a handset.My cellphone takes a SIMM card and I have read that I should be able to put my simmcard in the car somewhere, or sync my phone via bluetooth. I have tried syncing the phone by turning on the bluethooth on my phone and connecting to the car with sucess. I have only been able to carry on one conversation and since then I have had various problems I have a SOny Experia TL Cellphone on the AT&T network. I dont know if I am missing anything in the car but if someone can provide step by step instructions that I can try to do to avoid the issues I am having I would be gratefull.. Here is a list:
a: When manually inputing a number to call the phone gets stuck on Dialing Number. I cannot exit this and the radio wont come off of mute, nor will it shut off. I have to disconnect the car battery to reset the system then the radio works fine.
b: Car requests phonebook to be downloaded from cellphone and I allow, however no information is ever put in the phonebook.
c: WHen answering the phone via MMI either I can hear the other person but they cannot hear me, or vice versa. Both have happend during testing.
2: Front cupholder insert is missing. Where is the best/cheapest replacement for them?
3: Light bulb burnt out icon is lit up, but all bulbs seem to be working.
4: Twice my battery went dead after the car sat for 2 hours.
5: Is there anyway to stream my music via bluetooth or a headphone jack from my cellphone? Under the Source option I only have CD listed.
6: I read somewhere about a software update for the MMI, where can I get it and how do I do it?
7: Does anyone know where I can get the options list from the VIN?
8: The curtousy window up/down option stopped working. They were both working and then the drivers side stopped, and a week later the passenger side.
If anyone can help I would be very thankfull. Thanks for reading and helping this newbee Audi A8 owner! I love the car and I think as long as these remain my only issues, I will continue to be a loyal Audi owner, and convert the BMW and Mercedes owners I know, my wife being the first!!
