    A3 8Y - Electrical system fault: Stop Vehicle

    This is how it all started with mine and uts due back in on the 26th April for the 4th time! Audi Basingstoke have been great but they can only do what is advised by Audi Germany and they dont seem to have a clue!

    A3 8Y - Electrical system fault: Stop Vehicle

    Just to update you all: I have not had any warning lights since the last software update. However the MMI is still re-nitialising at random times. On Saturday the screen went completely blank and wouldnt come back on. I switched the car off and restarted it twice and it stayed blank. The...

    A3 8Y - Electrical system fault: Stop Vehicle

    Mine is back in the workshop again! The same warnings came up so the new alternator has not fixed the issues. I was only 5 mins away from the dealership when the warning came up so went straight to the dealership and kept the engine running to retain the fault codes. (Apparently 6 of them). I...

    A3 8Y - Electrical system fault: Stop Vehicle

    Yes, I agree with your theory. There is definitely a voltage drop happening causing the issues. My initial guess was to do with the energy recovery as all instances had occured under braking before coming to a stop. The last instance however was not. The MMI reset definitely says volt drop...

    A3 8Y - Electrical system fault: Stop Vehicle

    Sorry, I meant sort all the warning issues. Im aware they are resolving the electric seats. When was the recall issued? I was in the Audi dealership on Thursday, there was no mention of it. I hope this is the case as I love the car.

    A3 8Y - Electrical system fault: Stop Vehicle

    The electric seat thing is an absolute joke! Weirdly I expected my s-line to have them, not sure why. If they dont get this issue sorted soon, social media will kill the new A3 sales.

    Continuous Problems - car in garage for a 4th time in 4 months.

    Watched your vid; Ive got the passenger door issue as well. I was suprised you didnt add the annoyance of having to switch off the lane guidance every time you get in the car! Fing thing drives me mad! Im the driver and fully capable of steering my car and keeping it in the lane!

    Continuous Problems - car in garage for a 4th time in 4 months.
