    Intermittent start/stop system fault

    Ah yes, wrong end of the stick then. stop/start vs start/stop perhaps! Still.. annoying problems with a somewhat annoying system. I will follow with interest regardless and hope you have better luck getting to root cause...! 'Luckily' I spend most of my time crawling along the m6 and don't see...

    Engine Start Button

    I get this... my current tactic is to hold the start button until the car says press brake pedal, press the pedal with the button still held down and away it goes. If I press the start button a second time the car just switches off :)

    Intermittent start/stop system fault

    Yes, had stop start give up in a similar manner with similar error on dash. Whilst my car logged an ECU failure, Audi where seemingly unable to give a satisfactory diagnosis and simply pulled the battery and reset the fault codes. having no faith in that fix I just permanently disable...

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    Apologies for the interlude, I've ignored cuke2u now so no longer compelled to respond to the trolling.

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    Try Googleing "troubleshooting methodology". So far as training vs complexity, if Audi cannot readily support the systems it implements, it should not implement them.

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    I absolutely can expect Audi technicians to be able to diagnose and correct issues with their cars. On thier own and in isolation? No, i didnt take the car to a one man band based out of a shed - we live in a highly connected world, of course I expect them to make use of Audis central support...

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    The fault code is noted in my first post... and yes modern car control systems are very much like a computers, rather a network of multiple computers running proprietary firmware on their own proprietary network! Being an IT engineer myself, I know full well the limitations of computer...

    Car Alarm problems?

    Well I owned a B8 with remote boot opening for three years, paid they keys no special attention and not once did I find the boot open when I didn't expect it to be. Based on direct personal experience, the new key is an inferior design. I've separated the B9 key from the rest and still manage to...

    Car Alarm problems?

    Not the alarm, but I am forever looking out of the window and seeing the boot open because of the stupidly placed/overly sensitive button on the remote. Neighbour just knocked on the door to say it was open again.:frowning:

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    Liverpool Audi - Just doing what Audi tells us m'lord so they say - shame, I would have thought being an Audi tech was a good profession and require some level of understanding over and above computer says no. Didn't bother to respond to my contact noting lack of faith in their 'fix' - got Audi...

    2.0TDi Quattro- Miles per tank

    2.0 quattro driver, similar millage - 700. Last 4 cars have been VAG, 1 petrol 3 diesels - I'm been lucky to get their urban figures with my daily drive and driving habits - 30 miles mway and 5 miles A road so I should be way up in the 60s right. Well no, partly because the claims are lies...

    What have you done in your B9 today

    +1 dodging trees.... the AMG63 took the fall for both me and potentially my car (its in the far right of the photo)... I was standing where I took the photo when it came down. Well not literally standing waiting for it to happen, running towards my car to move it away from these trees. In the...

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    Picked up an email from the service dept today... Sceptical me was right, terminal 30 reset (pull the battery) and cleared fault codes. So I'm left to hope there was some kind of latent voltage issue - the car was left a the dealers for over a month before collection *shrugs* - if not then I'm...

    ECM/PCM fault code..

    Picked the car up this evening, bit of a last minute arrangement and the service dept was closed when I arrived, so wasn't able to get much information as to what the fault is/was or what has been done to fix it. Brief phone call prior to collection noted some 'parameters' had been reset...
