Auto Code Scanner - Where's My Connector -- Audi

OMG! My Check Engine Light Is On!

Suddenly it's there, boldly starring like never before, each and every time you turn on your car. Chances are it's just temporary. Perhaps, your gas cap wasn't tightened when you got gas. Perhaps, it's an oxygen sensor and it's a repair you can put off until next payday.

Never-the-less, it's a nagging worry. What if it doesn't go away? What does it mean? What if it is something serious?

Where's My Connector? - - For All Models of Audi

 

OK. It's there. We all know at some level that we have one, but where or where could that connector be? You need to find it before you can hook up your auto code scanner. Well, it all depends upon the year of your Audi and the model. Just because you knew where it was on your previous model of Audi, doesn't mean it will be in the same place on your new one.

Just remember, you search for your auto computer code connector since 1996, is limited to somewhere inside the front passenger compartment.

Again, great info. I experienced the "check engine" thingy not too long ago and sure enough -- my gas cap wasn't on tight enough. Boy, was my face red! Good Hub! Best, Sis

Thanks Angela Blair! It probably would have been redder if you'd found out that you were charged for unneccessary repairs because you didn't know the reason for the light and had to depend on the mechanics word for it.

I'm not to happy with A6 right now. It won't run and everything looks ok, it started up for 10 seconds after not touching it for a month and hasn't done anything since then. Has anyone had issues with an 2000 A6 2.8 not starting and finding it to be an easy fix?

I think this post is fully informative. I enjoy your article. I was searching for my Audi A4 2008. Thanks for these. http://www.joy2day.com/cars/

Audi has proven to be the most reliable make of cars. I bought an Audi 15 years back and used it for eight years without a single problem. http://www.micoequipment.com
