    2010 S4: 20" S6 wheels, satin black wrap, RS4 grille, AWE Touring, Deval CF Diffuser, 404 HP tuned
    Location
    Chicago

    I just got the dreaded ďGearbox Malfunction: You May Continue DrivingĒ warning and the P179E code (sensor for gear electrical fault) on my 2010 S4.

    (I also got the following codes:
    P10a4 regulating flap for intake air mechanical malfunction
    P1130 long term fuel trim multiple, bank 2 system too lean
    P179F sensor for gear malfunction)

    Iím already part of the Class Action Lawsuit listed on the thread dealing with the mechatronics / gear sensor module / transmission issues that have plagued many B8 owners.

    From what Iíve read, most mechanics do not have the tools and equipment to drop the tranny and replace the gearbox sensor module, and thus this needs to be done at an Audi dealership.

    Does anyone in the Chicago area have experience with this? Can anyone recommend a specific dealership? Are there any Audi mechanics here that do work in the side who could tackle this?

    Thank you!

    Does your Bluetooth work from your Rnse?
    If not, this could be the problem. Had this issue on my b7 rs4 some years back and disconnected the power from the Bluetooth unit and it stopped the battery drain issue.

    Copying and pasting this from another thread I started. Going to try to gauge interest for a meet at Road America during the IMSA race. Just reposting here for more views.

    Anyone else going to the IMSA race at Road America? The Wisconsin Audi Group/ACNA had an event scheduled for this weekend but it was cancelled. The event was supposed to include hot laps in an S3, a tour of team facilities, hospitality, and more. Seeing if anyone that was intending to go to the ACNA event or anyone that is just hearing about this would be interested in some sort of a get together. I canít promise you hot laps in an S3 or a tour of any teamís facilities but I think itíd still be cool to have some sort of get together. Depending on the interest, I may start a Facebook event.

    Just posting up here to apologize!!

    I've been off the forums for several weeks as life has gotten busy and the workload has me backed up for weeks. I am back and will be checking regularly! Prepare for a new at home shop by next spring complete with lift and many other specialty tools to continue servicing the Audi community out here.

    Stay Tuned!!

    Just finished this repair plus other aspects at Import Motors (John Naltsas owner & Alex the lead technician) in Schaumbugh. Long arduous process but end results so far excellent. I bought a 2010 with 115,000 on the clock in late March. Parked for a while while trying and finally selling my 2000 A4 2.8 with 402,000 miles. John and team hav been servicing my Aui(s) for past 5 years. I commute from Milwaukee to Itasca every day. Give them a call a tell them Kevin Rea sent ya.

    I'm planning out a Galena Cruise for Chicagoland (Illinois) Audi Drivers, just wanted some feedback from everyone else who would be interested in doing this: https://goo.gl/forms/vhDUGvoThbLRbclt1

    I'm heading out with a few members this Sunday to run some roads and then scout out any more other roads for us to hit on the "official" cruise I will be setting up later.

    Lets get out and drive our cars!

    loitering in Decatur, we're few and far between down here. Peoria seems to be where all the larger events gather, and there's a smaller Cars & Coffee event just a little south of you in Clinton this weekend.

    Thanks for the tip. Yes I think weíre certainly few and far between down here. I havenít seen another S6 yet in my town of 130000 so far.

    While looking for the Clinton event I found this site: http://www.carshowfinder.org/

    Yep looks like a lot of these are up north; I know a few douchebags up there that make a pilgrimage to Starved rock from time-to-time, and they bring an S6 in tow.

    I've usually had to bring the truck out for the local meets around me; low euro attendance, and mostly domestic muscle, but If you find someplace that looks promising shoot me a message.

    Can anyone recommend a shop near the Chicagoland area that does dyno pulls without tunes? Iím in Bourbonnais but I can go to Chicago. I mailed a few but they only do dyno tuning or charge a lot (Finish Line Performance quoted $150 for two pulls). Any other options other than FLP?

    Komet Motorsports in St Charles has a Mustang Dyno. We had a dyno day there a couple of weeks ago. I believe their rate is around $100 for a 1hr of time (this includes setup as well) so donít know how many pulls that is. Dyno day we did 3 pulls. Iím heading back there once I get some upgrades done. It was reading low and they said there is around a 28% loss between the WHP and HP (crank) numbers. So take that for what itís worth.

    They do have another Dyno day on September 15th if Iím not mistaken that you should get a group discount rate.

    Can someone recommend me a exhaust shop somewhere around Cook County where I can get downpipes installed on a b7 S4? They need to be able to drop the subframe as part of it and a few shops I tried said they donít have the equipment theyíd need for that. Thanks in advanced!
