2000 Audi A6 Owner Comments

problem #8

A6 6-cyl

The center instument cluster has been in and out for as long as I have owned the car. Some days, when the planets align correctly, the display will be mostly visible. On most days, however, most pixels are not visible, some are faded, and certain critical warnings cannot be seen...you can hear the beeping, but have no clue what is failing! if this were a plug and play part I would have replaced it by now...but the whole thought of having to solder the lcd in discourages a fix. This is an inherent issue with the C5 line...cannot believe Audi has never recalled for this issue! clearly this is a problem.

The instrument cluster has gone out and there is no way to read the important messages that come across it. I.e. low fuel, temp or coolant or engine, brake problems, washer fluid.... I feel something needs to be done on this part!!

The contact owns a 2000 Audi A6. The instrument panel failed. The contact purchased the vehicle in 2007 and the lights on the instrument panel have never completely worked. When it is cold outside, the lights illuminate bright enough to be visible. In warm temperatures, the lights were very low and very dim. The dealer has not been inspected by the dealer. The contact was informed that in order to have it repaired, he would need to replace the entire instrument panel cluster. When the lights are dim, he is unable to see what gear the vehicle is in or detect if there was a possible failure with the engine. The failure mileage was 80,000 and current mileage was 97,000. Updated 07/29/08 the consumer stated the scrren was not visible. Updated 07/31/08.

Model year 2000, Audi A6 quattro wagon 4 instances of sub-standard equipment: 1) ABS warning lights due to defective ABS controller a very common problem which the manufacturer should be forced to recall. 2) sub-standard materials used in the vent tubing in the engine compartment (cheap plastic that breaks causing increased emissions output harming the environment). 3) dashboard warning display led faulty, a very common problem which the manufacturer should be forced to recall. 4)plastic components in interior of the auto break easily poor plastic strength (ie cupholder, buttons etc).

Information display on instrument cluster is not readable. Many lines on the lcd display keep it from providing critical information.

The lcd in the instrument cluster which displays any warning lamps was failing. This was a very common problem. Without use of this display I will not know if I have a check engine light, brake failure light or so forth. I know over 100 people with this same problem, and I am not making this up.
