NoteOn some models the speed limit warning 1
and speed limit
will also be displayed as yellow symbols. These always
appear as a small symbol at the top of the display ⇒page 28.
Applies to vehicles: with Audi drive selectDynamic steering
Dynamic steering: system fault
This message and the
symbol will appear if a fault develops in the
system while the vehicle is moving. You can continue driving care-
fully at reduced speed to the next qualified workshop, however the
steering may feel heavier and its response may be more sensitive than usual. In addition, it is possible that the steering wheel will be
off centre when driving in a straight line.
Dynamic steering: initialising
If this message appears and the warning lamp
flashes in the
instrument cluster, this indicates that the dynamic steering is being
initialised. The steering wheel will move slightly after the engine is
started. The dynamic steering may be initialised if the steering
wheel was moved while the vehicle was stopped. The warning lamp
will go out when the initialisation has been completed.
Have the system malfunction in the dynamic steering repaired by
a qualified workshop as soon as possible – risk of accident.
The stabilisation functions of the dynamic steering ⇒page 222 are
not available in the event of a system malfunction.Applies to vehicles: with advanced keyKey not in vehicle
Key not in vehicle
This message will appear together with the symbol
if the remote
control key is removed from the vehicle while the engine is running.
This is to remind you not to continue driving without the key (for
example if you change drivers).
If the remote control key is not in the vehicle you will not be able to
switch on the ignition or restart the engine after it has been
switched off. You will also not be able to lock the vehicle from the

Driver information system 40The tyre pressure monitoring system makes use of the ABS sensors
to compare the rolling circumference and the vibration of the
wheels. The display in the instrument cluster alerts the driver if
changes are detected on one or more wheels. If only one tyre is
affected, the display will indicate its position ⇒fig. 27.
Each time you change a tyre or the tyre pressures on your vehicle,
you must store the new tyre pressures via the sound system or
MMI* ⇒page 41.
The rolling circumference and vibration can change if:•
The tyre pressure is too low
The tyre has suffered structural damage
The air pressure in one or more tyres was changed and the new
tyre pressures were not stored ⇒page 41, “Storing the tyre pres-
The wheels were changed and the new tyre pressures were not
stored ⇒page 41, “Storing the tyre pressures”
There is a greater load on the wheels of one axle (e.g. if you are
carrying more passengers or luggage)
The road surface under the left wheels is different to the road
surface under the right wheels for a long period
/ TPMS Tyre pressure ! System malfunction
If the warning lamp flashes for about a minute and then remains
lit after you switch on the ignition, there is a fault in the system. TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System) Tyre pressure ! System
malfunction ⇒page 40, fig. 28 will also be displayed in the instru-
ment cluster. Please contact the nearest qualified workshop as soon
If the tyre pressure warning lamp appears in the instrument
cluster display, slow down immediately and avoid any severe
braking or steering manoeuvres. As soon as you can do so safely,
stop and check the tyres and the tyre pressures.
It is the driver's responsibility to ensure that the tyre pressures
are correct. For this reason you must check the tyre pressures
Under certain conditions (e.g. driving at high speeds, on ice and
snow or on poor road surfaces) the tyre pressure warning lamp
may not light up immediately or not at all.
Please ask your Audi dealer or qualified workshop whether run
flat tyres can be used on your vehicle. Unauthorised use of these
tyres can invalidate the vehicle's type approval for use on public
roads. Furthermore, this could cause damage to your vehicle and
possibly also result in an accident.
