Battery explosion occurred. Two weeks prior to battery explosion, vehicle ignition switch would not return completely from start position to run position when the engine is started. It was necessary for the driver to manually return the key to the run position. When the key was between start and run position, turn signals and air conditioning would not operate. When turning the ignition switch to start the vehicle on August 4, 2004, battery exploded. Battery in this vehicle is positioned underneath rear seat passenger side. Vehicle is currently being diagnosed for root cause of battery explosion at local non-Audi service center.
