"Passenger Side Airbag Off" will illuminate when there is no occupant in the passenger seat, if occupant is out of position, or a child seat has been installed.
The trip computer gives you information on the current and average fuel mileage, speed, fuel range, and driving time. The trip computer is equipped with two fully automatic memories. The single-trip memory, Trip 1, stores the information from the time the ignition is turned on until it is turned off. If the trip is continued within 2 hours from the time the ignition was turned off, the new information will be included until the trip is interrupted for more than 2 hours. The Total-trip memory, Trip 2, is not reset automatically, and it allows the driver to evaluate the driving data for the entire period between manual resets.
To toggle between readings, press the up and down switches on the end of the windshield wiper lever. Press the button on the bottom of the stalk to switch between Trip 1 and Trip 2. Also, to reset the values press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of the wiper stalk.
Yes, tire pressure is affected by temperature changes and thus tire pressure monitoring systems can be affected by temperature changes.
The tire pressure indicator in the instrument cluster informs you if the tire pressure is too low or if there is a system malfunction. These characteristics can change and cause a tire pressure warning if the tire pressure in one or more tires is too low; the tire has structural damage; or the tire pressure was changed or the wheels rotated or replaced but the TPMS was not reset. An indirect tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) compares the tire tread circumference and vibration characteristics of the individual tires. If the pressure decreases in one or more tires, this is indicated in the instrument cluster with a warning symbol.
Pressing the 'Mode' button will toggle between Phone, Music/Radio/Sat Radio and Instrument Cluster computer view. Once the display is on the Instrument Cluster view, you can view the speed digitally. It may be necessary to press the reset button on the wiper stalk as well. If you have a route guidance active with Navigation, the speed will not be displayed in the Driver Display. It will be replaced with Navigation instructions. By pressing the 'Mode' Button, you will be able to change from Phone, to Radio/Media and to Nav instructions. If the Route Guidance is cancelled, the Digital display of the speed will become active again.
TDI® Vehicles: This occurs when the particulate filter is becoming clogged. If the Particulate Filter illuminates, drive for 15 minutes with selector lever in S position at a minimum of 37 mph and engine speed of approximately 2000 RPM. Temperature increase that will result from this can burn off the soot in the filter. The symbol will switch off when the cleaning is successful. If the symbol does not clear, and the MIL turns on please see your nearest Audi dealer. Note: under normal conditions the filter will clean itself with no intervention.
The diesel engine utilizes a glow plug system to assist in starting the vehicle. This system is temperature controlled. When it is cold outside, the engine may take a little longer to glow and then you can start the vehicle easily. This will vary depending on the temperature.
