    Angry 2004 Audi A8 problems on where to start PLEASE

    I have a 2004 Audi A8 (4E) I purchased this car and noticed a few problems like Headlight range Malfunction. I also noticed my battery indicator fluctuating up and down in the MMI and tire pressure is showing green with no Psi readings. With this said I purchased VCDS. I have been getting very familiar with the software so far but could use some help. This is what has happen so far. I have done an auto scan and the cleared all DTCs, I then took it for a nice drive and did a rescan so I had fresh readings. the Auto Scan I have posted below is what I come up with. I have forwarded the Auto Scan to Ross-Tech and I was told that the 07- Control Head is a newer part number than for my car so it might not be configured properly based on the lack of TPMS menu. I also found out that the car has an Advance auto parts battery and the car wasn't reading correctly, I then faked out the car by just changing the last number in the serial and that has helped because now its not shutting random control modules down. Please help guys with anything you see in the Auto Scan I will do anything to get this car correct. Thanks in advance.

    I'm thinking on that car, the Headlight Range module gets ride height from the Level Control Module, and you may have to fix the fault there before you can carry out the Basic Setting for the Headlights?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    1) TMPS sorry, no info about this.
    2) Change your bulb or check for wire damage.
    3) Headlight range. Change the level control sensor. You probably need to do adaption for level control also plus headlight range control.
    4) Alarm horn is faulty. This is usual for golf5 and passat 3c. Don't know much about A8. License plate fault, probably usual pin oxidation. Also change the bulb in trunk lightning.
    5)Change rear brake pads. When doing adaption hook up a good battery charger. And i mean good, not just smart charger.
    6) Battery. I don't have much info to contribute about it.
    7) Telematics Again not much info, because your car is US. But i think there's internal battery that may be ran flat.

    Thanks for the reply Uwe,
    I would have to agree it's like there attached together lol. I'm not sure where to start!! My car's works perfectly on going up and down no matter what settings I have it on and yesterday I did a test and a recalibration on the level controls by measuring in mm on each wheel to level it out and it was in spec and perfect???
    I checked to see if there maybe was a sensor to unplug and clean at the shock area and looks like it pressurized on or something lol.. Any ideas on what to do?

    My passenger side headlamp bulb was purple/pink so I swapped it with the drivers side and it still is then it blew, I ordered a new set of headlamps and when they arrive I will be taking both the head lights out of the car that would give me more room to work anything I could do for a test or clean while there removed?? Also how do I adjust and calibrate then in the basic settings? Also where can I get the security access number for vcds to do so? thanks in advance..

    Thanks golfi for the reply,

    Answers to the following that might help.
    2) The driver side headlight blew the other day and I purchased a set and will change both when they come in but error was there even before bulb was blown.
    3) I want to do a an adaption but it seams like I need security access code to do so properly because that's what flashes at me but it says basic settings are not in something like that. I'm not sure what to do about this at all some guidance on how to do both the adaption or adjust head lights would be awesome.
    4) Alarm horn needs to be replaced I pulled it out and the battery busted all over the board that will be on the way. the License plate and trunk fault is crazy because they are all lite up, I will say that the previous owner replaced all bulbs with nice bright LED's maybe that could be the problem???
    5) I just got brand new tires $1,500 may I add WOW and the tehs said all my brakes were perfect!!! Confused about that one.
    Thanks in advance for further guidance your awesome!!

    Are you talking about the control head??? I ask because Dana from VCDC brought it up and I looked the part number up and it's from an 05 Audi A8.

    Also I'm missing some options in the MMI so it kind of makes sense.. Not sure
