    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to fix the MMI screen if it fails to pop up when the ignition is started? Got a new A3 and this is the second time the MMI screen failed to pop up when starting the engine. Currently driving a two hour journey and can't use the sat nav or any other MMI functions.

    Have you tried using the manual switch on the dash to see if that resets it mate?

    Have you tried force-rebooting the MMI unit using the three-button method?

    I've tried the manual power button and also tried leaving it off for 20mins and still nothing.

    What's the three button method?

    Whilst pressing down the rotating knob, push the two side buttons toward the front of the car.

    Is it still the switches shown in an FL or do you push the buttons on either side of the MMI wheel in an FL?

    The hardware reset command in theory should be immediate. It would then take 20-30 seconds to fully reboot though!

    For 8V models this is the re-boot method for the MMi

    That button configuration has changed in 2017 I guess (there are two metal look buttons either side of the wheel instead of four black plastic ones).

    Exactly, I wouldn't have posted the picture unless it was relevant!

    Screen on my PFL started playing up after about 12 months, didn't even try this. Went straight to Audi and they had a new unit in within a week :)

    I wanted to try this a few weeks back, but when I asked my female neighbor if she would sit in the car with me and push my big knob down whilst I pushed the small buttons she slapped me across the face! :sadlike::blink:
