    Car starts then stalls [VCDS READOUT inc]

    This came off the Auizine forum. Worth a try. 1. Disconnect battery & connect leads with a jumper wire. Wait 5-10 minutes. 2. Reconnect battery, place key in ignition & initiate reprogramming sequence. 3. Sequence = turn key to "ON" position only, wait 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times. * Press the...

    1.6 petrol - bad starting, huge flatspot, no error codes

    It's worth investing inVagcom/VCDS if you are intending to keep the car. Saved me a small fortune over the years with the many VAG cars that I've owned, & several members of this forum too. Coolant Temp Sensor has 2 seperate outputs i.e, one for the gauge & one for the ECU. It's a very common...

    1.6 petrol - bad starting, huge flatspot, no error codes

    Coolant temp sensor would be my 1st suspect followed the MAF sensor, & finally the camshaft position sensor. All of these can be at fault without throwing a fault code. Use genuine parts too as "buy cheap buy twice" is normal for VAG engine sensors.

    235/40/19 on ET26 8J - will these fit?

    IIRC correct ET/Offset for A4 B6 is 45.

    Brake pedal switch failure. Very common problem & only about £10 for a genuine part.

    Driveshafts

    I think they're the same, but you'd best cross reference with reg no on Eurocarparts etc.

    Are there any cheap remap options??

    VCDS/Vagcom is really useful, & it does many things, but you can't remap with it. I've owned 9 different VAG cars, & VCDS has paid for itself many times over.

    Are there any cheap remap options??

    VCDS/Vagcom can't do remapping. My remote worked fine as did the alarm just the immobiliser was disabled. I wouldn't think an A4 B6 would be much of target for a car thief.

    Are there any cheap remap options??

    It's not as simple as just buying a cable, you'll need specialist software plus the correct OBD2 cable to be able to flash the ECU. When I had my A4 PD 130 I bought a mapped ECU on Ebay with the immobiliser disabled which meant it was plug & play. I have VCDS so was able to enable the...

    Wheels rubbing a little

    235.40.18 is correct size for 18" alloys on a B6 A4. It's what I had on my A4 B6 Avant, & had no rubbing issues.

    A4 cabriolet losing power

    Could be many things, you need to get it read for fault codes.

    Wheel Speed Monitoring

    I have a 3rd party cable & a registered copy of VCDS ($99 on Ross Tech site) which I've had for about 10 years without any problems. Saved me a small fortune.:thumbs up:

    S4 B6 2004 Cab running rough, engine light flashing ?

    You need to get it read for fault codes otherwise it's pure guesswork as to whats wrong.

    PD 130 to decat or not to decat?

    I eventually sold the car with 240k on it & it never had any turbo issues after the decat.
