    2005 A6 Steering column replacement

    2005 A6 Quattro BKH.

    Car has been having starting issues. No crank, no start. Has been starting since it has been at our shop. However, does have a steering lock message with steering wheel and key symbol in display. Found code 00288 - Steering Column Lock Actuator (N360) 014 - Defective, in Address 5 Acc/start auth module.

    Steering lock actuator only appears to be available with complete, steering column. My understanding is column has to be matched with kessy/immo. and this cannot be done with VCDS and must be performed by dealer. Is this true?

    Thanks in advance,

    Code:

    I don't think we have a way of doing that with VCDS.

    The question is whether the steering column lock being defective would prevent the car from starting. I've seen an 05 much like that one that wouldn't start and the problem turned out to be the starter itself. However that car did not have any immo/steering column faults or messages in the cluster.

    -Uwe-
    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.

    If it like passat B6 the ignition will not come on if the steering lock has not moved position from locked > unlocked.

    I don't know the Audi design but on a B6 passat the steering lock is held on by two shear bolts. You can get these off and remove the lock. If the Audi is the same you can open the lock, energize the motor and unlock it. Then the ignition etc will work. Engine may not start though.

    On B6 Passat the easiest way to replace lock(when u don't have new one) , is to read eeprom and put dump into another (used) lock . But Passat lock is cheap, and i don't know Audi lock solution.

    UWE this is very common problem on 4F Audi A6. And yes whole Steering column needs to be replace bacuse Steering lock module and Immobilizer is part of it.
    Look at address 05 for faulty codes.

    This on a 4F A6? I'd be willing to lose the actuator and/or lock so long as I don't lose the ignition cylinder (since that's, you know... necessary. How else would I be able to use the VCDS?). How do you completely bypass the Immo system, though? We went back and forth a couple months ago about my wife's '05 A6 3.2Q that gives the same stupid "defective actuator" message - as soon as I clear code in module 05, no problem starts right up. No chance in hell I'm paying ~$3k to replace a perfectly working COLUMN on a $5k car just because the column lock should've been recalled...
