  1. Parking Brake / Air Bag Warning Indicator

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hi guys, I'm sorry I didn't update the post. Fortunately I guess, the issue has been resolved, unfortunately, I can't remember what I did to correct it. I vaguely recall removing the cables from my battery for 24 hours and the system reset, but I'm not sure that was the solution for this...
  2. EPC Light comes on at 4000 rpm - clears on restart

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Thanks for the quick response. Fortunately, I was told about the "Top-Tier" fuel and have only ever used Shell's highest grade full. I received the P2293 error code and have experienced the "limp" mode when hitting a certain RPM. The car will sputter a little when I first start it in the...
  3. EPC Light comes on at 4000 rpm - clears on restart

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hi guys, I know it's been a while since this post was updated, but did any of you happen to replace the fuel regulator on your car by any chance? I'm thinking of giving it a shot, but can't find any instructions on-line. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Greg 09 S5
  4. Parking Brake / Air Bag Warning Indicator

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hi Dan, I have, and you are correct, but you haven't met my dad. Shrek, I'm not sure, he's usually very good about using his seatbelt, so I don't think that would have been an issue, but it's good info to know.
  5. Parking Brake / Air Bag Warning Indicator

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hi Wils1514, thanks for the reply. I don't have my diagnostic tool with me. I might need to stop at the service station. My Dad may have driven with the parking brake on, but it is still working.
  6. Parking Brake / Air Bag Warning Indicator

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hi everyone, I had my Air Bag indicator light as well as another light I can't seem to identify came on together suddenly yesterday (Please see image, I circled the indicator lights in yellow). Unfortunately, I let my father borrow the car and he insists that he didn't do anything out of the...
  7. Single Tire Replacement

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Thanks for the help. I was told that I don't even need to balance out the two rears because it shouldn't matter if it's one two or three as long as they didn't vary by more than three degrees. As it stands they are exactly three degrees apart. Still no warning lights.
  8. Single Tire Replacement

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hey all, I just had one of my tires punctured on my 2009 S5 in a place where it can't be repaired (the outer edge). The wear on the old treads has 5/32" remaining and the new tire has 8/32" remaining tread. I drove after the tire was put on (Rear driver's side) and no warning lights came on...
  9. Gas gauge not working

    A5 & S5 Topics
    Hey all, Has anyone had issues with their gas gauge? I filled up the other day and none of the gauges showed that put any gas in. The mileage indicator ran down to 0 and my gas light is on. I have an appointment in two weeks but I'm stumped. Thanks in advance Greg

    Does anyone have a vag-com in Connecticut that would be willing to help me make a couple of quick modifications to my car? I'll buy the beers. I considered buying one, but I can only think of a couple of changes I'd make. Thanks Greg
  12. Misfiring Cyliders

    S5 General Q&A
    Honestly, I'm not too mechanically inclined, but the way I understand it is that the spark is firing, but not at the optimal moment. I will say that the hesitation is gone and the power seems much better, especially from 2500 to 5000 rpm. So far I'm happy with the results. I'll update if...
  13. Misfiring Cyliders

    S5 General Q&A
    Well, here's the verdict. The dealership replaced the thermostat and said that that solution didn't solve the misfiring. Then they called and said that it did in fact fix the issue. I picked the car up yesterday and was told by the mechanic that it was actually a vacuum pump that was causing...
  14. Misfiring Cyliders

    S5 General Q&A
    Trust me, I've read all of the FSI issues but I was hoping mine wasn't impacted. Hey if they fix it and it help benefit others I'm willing to be the guinea pig. It is entirely possible that this is the first real attempt. I'm hoping to hear good news tomorrow. Maybe I've been down horse...
  15. Misfiring Cyliders

    S5 General Q&A
    Hey Zee, They've had it for 6 days, I know that isn't a lot, but it's frustrating. This is the third visit for this issue. Audi is there today trying to help troubleshoot. The temperature sensor that they replaced didn't resolve the issue so they are on to the next idea (don't know what that...
