The fuel indicator no longer works. It constantly reads empty and the amber
warning is continuously on. Could this be related to the recall or must I
replace the fuel sending unit , gas tank, or what?
The odometer indicator bulb has burned out. Can this be fixed by repalcing
the 1.5 watt red bulb? Would that also bring the ambient temperature
indicator light back?
Know this particular problem all too well, had it too, on my then newly
bought used 1999 A6Q Tiptronic Limousine (Sedan). But, since I luckily had a
three months unlimited used cars warranty from our local SAAB/Subaru
dealership where I had then just bought it, the dealership fixed it totally
cost-free for me, and also gave me a brand new, free SAAB 9-3 Sport Sedan
loaner while the repair lasted. It was insured, too, I only had to pay for
the gas (petrol) that I used. The used cars warranty was in fact not
optional or an extra, it was simply automatically included in the sales
price. Nice one!! But how they really fixed it?? I simply do not know! They
fixed it for free, you see, so I did not really care too much, but I think
that they had to replace some unit, because I know that they had to order
some special Audi parts for the job. They also fixed for free a minor gas
(petrol) tank leak while they were at it. They had to order some special
parts for that, too. Maybe these two faults were somehow connected, but,
like I said earlier, I simply do not know. It is only educated guesswork. I
have frequently heard that the fuel indicator (gauge?) are a weak spot in
many Audis. But, all in all, I am extremely satisfied with my A6Q, which
absolutely is by far the best car I have ever owned.
Have exactly the same problem on my A6Q The fuel guage problem seems to be
specifc to the Quattro because of the different shaped fuel tank.
Had my replaced under warenty and its gone again (now out of warenty!)
