    HI EVERYONE
    IM IN NEED OF SOME ADVICE. I RECENTLY BOUGHT A 210 BHP S3 Y REG THAT HAS HAD A STAGE 2 REMAP. I NOTICED RECENTLY THAT IM GETTING WHEEL SPIN FROM THE FRONT WHEELS IN THE WET, REGARDLESS IF I FLOOR IT OR EASE THE POWER ON.

    TO MY KNOWLEDGE THE HALDEX SYSTEM SHOULD TRANSFER THE POWER EVENLY TO ALL 4 WHEELS DEPENDING ON YOUR DRIVER INPUT, SO YOU SHOULD NEVER GET WHEELSPIN. I TOOK IT TO AN AUDI DEALER WHILST IN GERMANY AS THE CAR WAS BEEPING 4 TIMES ON START UP, AFTER READING THE MANUAL THERE IS NOTHING THAT EXPLAINS WHAT THIS IS. ALTHOUGH FOR THREE BEEPS IT IS A MAJOR FAULT THAT WILL THEN RELAY THE INFO ON THE DRIVER ON BOARD DISPLAY. THE AUDI DEALER HOOKED IT UP TO THE DIAGNOSTIC MACHINE AND IT CAME UP WITH A FAULT IN THE HALDEX SYSTEM THAT WAS STEUREN OR SOMETHING IT TRANSLATED TO ELECTRICAL SYSTEM FOR THE HALDEX. HAS ANYONE ELSE COME ACROSS THIS PROBLEM. I REALLY DONT WANT TO BE RIPPED OFF BY THE DEALERS AND SO WANT TO GO IN THERE ARMED AND AWARE OF WHAT THE PROBLEM IS AND HOW MUCH IT SHOULD ROUGHLY COST. CHEERS GUYS AND GIRLS

    THE BEEPS ARE THE ALARMS BACKUP BATTERY LOSING POWER.

    most probably a haldex ecu electrical fault, probably going to require haldex ecu which costs about £400.00 plus fitting approx £150 at a dealer.

    really need to see the print out first though!

    probably the Haldex unit, you should be able to pick up a second hand one much cheaper than the above price.

    failing that buy the uprated haldex controller.

    PS NO NEED FOR THE CAPS LOCK
