    Fuel Gauge always reading near zero

    I did a resistance check of the senders today. Tank was originally full and I syphoned about 35L out. Tank is supposed to be 80L. One sensor was 280 Ω and the other was 390 Ω. I looked for a fuse relating to the fuel gauge but only found one for the instrument cluster. ( it was good ) I checked...

    Fuel Gauge always reading near zero

    I *did* replace the fuel tank Fuel Pump a few years ago and swapped the sender over to the new pump, and have not had any problems until now. Yes, I think I have 2 sensors, a fuel pump on one side, and possibly a 'balancing' ( for want of the right terminology ) pump. I have the impression...

    Fuel Gauge always reading near zero

    2006 A6 C6 3.2L Quattro Sedan 175000km I replaced the fuel pump at 150000km. No problems with that since. A couple of days ago, I was near empty, so I filled up my tank. ( very full) When I restarted my car, the fuel gauge remained at the 'almost empty' level and the estimated range remained...

    Car sometimes won't crank when key turned.

    Thanks jnrdavo, I never even thought of the starter motor. That does seem a possibility. I just watch a vid on changing the starter.......geez......what a nightmare..... I don't think I will attempt it as I haven't got a hoist. It would be too hellish. Looks like I will have to get a garage to...

    Dual Flip Down Accelerator Pedals

    Has anyone had these installed in their car? I am trying to work out how to do it to my car as I'm an Amputee and my wife wants to drive my car as well. I know some companys in the UK do a install for later models but not the C6 and they won't sell me a kit. I bought a another pedal box so I...

    Now I have fuel leaks....

    2006 A6 C6 Quattro Hi Guys, After getting the new fuel pump fitted, by a shop, I drove the car home and didn't use it for a week. When I went to use it, it wouldn't start. Fuel gauge was on zero, so I assumes the mechanic had dropped the tank to flush it. I put 10L in it and it started. Went...

    SRI on 2006 A6

    I want to set the service interval on my car to 15 000 km. I've had a play around on VCDS, but it does not seem obvious to me.... I've done some searches on the Ross Tech site, but it does not seem to specifically deal with setting a figure, just resetting it. Anybody know definitive how to do...

    A6 C6 Drivers side rear door won't unlock (sometimes )

    I replaced the passenger side rear door lock today. All fixed. All up it cost me about $300 for both locks off Ebay, where the dealer wanted to charge me about $1500. I pulled one of the old locks apart to see how it was setup. In hindsight, it looks like most of the problem is the fact that...

    C6 Park Brake Noise

    Even since I've owned the A6 ( 2 years ), the park brake has made strange noises when engaging and dis-engaging. I've just had a service and mentioned this to them and they seem to think that its normal. ( they are not an Audi Service department. ) Do these park brakes normally make noises that...
