Audi A6 Audio Questions



  • chiradchirad Posts: 5
    I recently bought an '07 A6 with the tech package.
    I tried using the bluetooth but find i have really weak signal. Is there a way to get a stronger signal or should i place my phone in a certain area?
  • I just got back from the store my car ran fine. 10 min later I go to start the car and it is dead... Battery is great all lights, locks and work but it does not want to crank.. Can you give me a suggestion..

    Don't know much about 1995 A5's (didn't even know they had them back then, as they are just new this coming year)...

    I've had that happen a few times and it was that I wasn't pressing down hard enough on the brake when trying to start the ignition... hopefully its something as simple as that...
  • Had Sirius installed in my 2006 A6. After a year, only one station from each category remains operative. I called Sirius and they resent the logon signal. Problem remains. Operator at Sirius thinks that it may be a radio setting (utilizing the rotary knob). I have spent hours attempting to rectify the problem. Has anyone experienced a similiar situation? I MISS CNBC. :cry:
  • What you need is a wire with both terminal ends the same as the terminal end of your ear phones your ear phones that plug into the I-Pod. Go to your local Radio Shack and tell them that's what you need. Be sure both male ends have the double copper rings. Each represents one side of stereo. They are usually sold at different lengths, and you can probably get by with the shortest (maybe 4 to 6 inches).
  • 1999 A6 Quattro - 96K miles, good condition, just had valve heads pulled, all new valves, valve guides, springs, heads machined, new water pump, new timing chain, and all related gaskets. Also had entire steering rackreplaced. I'm in MD which is no longer really snow country in the winter. What snow we have had, I purposefully put the car in situations some 4WD trucks and SUV's would have trouble with and this German beauty just walked a dog right through it.

    First problem is the work put into it in the past year costs more then what Kelly Blue Book calculates it is worth. Second problem is, it is daughter's car, she's still in college and not making the kind of money part time to keep gas in it and do upkeep, and I don't want to subsidize any longer.
  • I had a similar problem with my '05. Sirius kept saying that everything was right on their end but I did not believe them. I ended up taking to the dealership and they found the antenna was malfunctioning. They replaced it and everything has been A-OK since. (As a note, this will effect your Bluetooth setup as well so be prepared to have to learn your phone into the system again if programmed as such.)

    Hi everybody,

    I am probably the last person to buy an iPod (1 week ago) and I am hooked on the Podcasts.....

    My 2007 A6 has Sirius, MMI, Navigation.....but for the life of me I cannot find any type of 3.5mm, USB or any other obviously it needs some kind of iPod kit but where would it plug?

    Thank you

    I can't rememeber whether Audi started providing the ipod connector in 2007 or 2008. If the car has an ipod connector, it is on the CD player.

    Thank you for replying.

    There is no jack whatsoever on the 2007 in-glove compartment CD.......I did a full search yesterday.

    Yet, in the Booklets that come with the A6 is shows an add-on being plugged into the front of the they knew about it to write about it.

    Do the low frequency FM transmitters work? It may be more logical than to have to put your iPod in the glove compartment or driver with it open.

    Thank you

    I wish I could help, but you are not the last person to have an IPOD; I am still waiting to make sure that the new technology works. The Audi salesman was amazed when I asked to have an 8-track installed in my 05 4.2. ;) Perhaps I should ask my teenagers about setting up an IPOD. I do know that Audi wants about $1,200 to retrofit my 05 to include an IPOD. I thin Denison has a less expensive fix as well.

    I have a 2006 A6 that recently lost all audio for the radio, CD, Nav system, phone and the MMI. The mute icon appears on the center screen and I can not get it to turn off. Also I can not access the sound control section when I am in radio or CD mode.

    All other functions appear normal. Has anyone seen this problem before?

  • I'm interested in purchasing an HD-Ready radio; however, I'm having some problems trying to find a system that is indicated as "compatible" with my A6 Quattro. Has anyone else installed a new sound system in this year and Model?

  • Hi all. I just bought a new '08 A6 3.2L and so far, loving it. The sound system is not the best I've ever heard, but it's the best I've owned. I was hoping someone could tell me if it's normal for the radio to come on when activitating any of the MMI controls (i.e. Navigation). In other words, if the radio is turned off and I press the Nav button, the radio will come on. It's not a problem for me, but it seems odd. Is that normal with the MMI system? Thanks!
