hi,
i have just bought an 96 audi 100 s6, c4 shape, very nice car but it has a few faults.
it wont change past 2nd gear.. and occasionally (only when its not having its brake warning light tantrum on the guage cluster screen- always usually there) it will go to click 3rd and free revs?. - iv been told that it may have an abs issue and its gone into limp home mode?
it has an intermittant misfire - sometimes it will miss, other times it runs fine?
and how do you turn up the dash backlights when the headlights are on? its really dull

help

so apparently the gearbox is stuffed once it goes into limp home mode, can anyone verify this?
figured out the dash lights lol i had a dull moment there.
probably going to buy a scan diagnostics tool for the car due to a general lack of information out there

Hi! On the dashboard - check fuses. Should be on with the headlights on. For sure get the cable. On AAH engine it was fairly intense diagnostics (I had to connect both K and L lines to read ECU though).
