I just picked up a 2004 s4 sedan with a few issues. Some i have ironed out but stumped on a few hope someone can lead me down the correct path.

1. The dome lights do not work nor do the visor lights- i do however have the footwell lights when the doors are opened and the all others seem to function.

2. my alarm does not work from the key fob nor does the horn chirp when I lock the key manually with the key. I do hear the doors lock though.

I have done a auto scan and there seems to be some modules that are reading incorrect vin numbers. Im new to the vag system but not new to flashing etc. I mainly have worked with hp tuners and EFi Live. any help would be greatly appreciated .

Please see the last special note for this DTC 01794 in the 8E in our WIKI (Uwe already posted the link). This is a known bug with those instrument clusters, no need to "background search" VINs here or "fix all those". Only the cluster needs to be fixed, any Audi dealer should be able to do that - the other VINs are still programmed correctly but the control modules are complaining since the "master VIN" in the cluster is corrupted. This perfectly matches the examples shown in the WIKI as well.

If an alternate VIN is present than what is on the data plate; it should always be checked out further by being authenticated with the national crime database.
Yeah there is a bug in this controller, however, it takes seconds to see if there are multiple VINS and check them.

It takes hardly any effort........

I mean hell........if taking the "Wizards" stance.......... why adhere to the warnings of the actual DTC's & the reason it was created in the first place seems a bit ........DUMB!

Sorry I have been away on vacation and just getting back to the headache in my driveway. Thanks for all of the replies. So I checked the vin and it did not come back stolen. So what I gather here is that I should take it to the audi dealer to have them fix the cluster? Are they the only ones who can write the script of the vin into the instrument cluster?
