Location:
Windsor, VA

i?ve a 92 audi 100 cs quatro, vin [xxx]. it appears that nhtsa recall id 97172000 would cover this car, as the vin number is in the range of applicable vehicles. as i write this, the dealer is replacing this part, the airbag controller, because the diagnostics has indicated that it has failed. this appears to fit with this recall. however, when i talk to the dealer (checkered flag, virginia beach, va) and the audi service line they say that this recall does not apply to this vehicle. but they cannot tell me why. they plug it into the computer and it says it doesn't apply. nobody can tell me if the recall was applied. and the range on the recall document says: [xxx] - [xxx] which certainly seems to fit by vin number (see above) my compliant ? either the recall is not being honored or the recall has already been applied and nobody in the audi can confirm that it has been applied. i've only had this vehicle for a year. so i can't confirm that it wasn't applied. however, your system, should keep track if a particular car has had the recall applied. the consequences are that i've got to pay $1300 for the part and $300 for installation. i would like audi to (a) show me the recall was applied or (b) refund me $1600 (or so) for the part and labor that you charged me. *js information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6)

Mclean, VA

during a cold snap, the air bag warning light came on when the car was started in the morning. the air bag controller was queried for a fault code, and the code 65535, internal control module memory error, was returned. the factory manual was consulted and the remedy offered was the replacement of the controller, with the instruction that the controller could not be reset using the scan tool. the dealer was contacted for the part, approximately $900, and it would have to be ordered. total cost (from a posting on audi world web site) for repair approximately $1500. of concern is the fact that on the audi world web site, very heavily tilted toward diy owners, i searched for the 65535 fault code and it returned 229 cases where they specifically mentioned the code, i do not know how many more mentioned the problem without mentioning the code. i did not look at all of them, but, many described the same cold weather coincidence with the problem. if the problem is a faulty controller where cold induces the fault, every vw product, that spends any time in the cold, with that control, or a variant with the same flaw, r is at risk. see my email for the rest of this. your system would not let me send it and when i called they could only offer that i send an email. *nm

my 2000 audi a6 2.7t, with 58099 miles, was parked in covered but ambient temperature parking lot for three days at approximately of. when i returned from travel and started the car, the airbag warning light remained on. the repair facility discovered that a sensor had shorted and destroyed the airbag control unit. while the warning light notified me of the failure, it does not seem reasonable that the airbag control should fail under these circumstances. *jb
