    Another Haldex failure here; dealership foreman was giving me a hard time telling me was"normal operating behavior" of the car and his 17 years of experience. I had to convince him to get another S3 from the lot to show him wrong. Eventually, he gave up and book me for an appt.

    1. How you discovered you had the issue : I launched the car and the front tires spinning for couple seconds, then engine buckles and catches on again. I do remember the first time it happened, I heard a loud thump sound.
    2. Mileage 30166
    3. Model year 2015-Haldex version G
    4. Any error codes 16670 -No error codes from VCDS
    5. What was done to fix it, and was it under warranty? I am still waiting for the full diagnosis of the system and it should be under warranty- no tune, fully stock.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one having issues with the dealership replacing this Haldex even after you show them the code.

    Haldex repair kit fail

    If you've had haldex issues, post your:

    2. Mileage
    3. Model year
    4. Any error codes
    5. What was done to fix it, and was it under warranty? I hear they are replacing the units with the ones from 2017's?
    1. under medium to hard acceleration from a stop in Dynamic sport mode with t/c still on (shifter in S) the front tires began slipping with flashing tcs light happening around 4500 rpms. The first time I noticed it, the road was slightly damp and I was making a left turn from a stop. At the next light, I repeated and noticed it again. Knowing that this has been an issue, I decided to go ahead and conduct a Launch Control test. The result was a complete FWD burnout which left two very apparant tire marks. Well atleast the front LSD is working good, but the rear tires didnt seem to engage whatsoever.

    2. Began noticing this at around 26k miles and had just brought my car in for service about 2 months ago.

    3. 2016 black optics (not sure of the differntial/haldex code)

    4. cant remember exact error code- invoice still in my backseat at the dealer and will update after I pick up the car.
    Upon arriving to the dealer at Audi of West Covina I informed them of my situation. The service advisor there was friendly, but mentioned only being an employee of Audi for one year after being with Mercvedes-Benz and was not very familiar with the Haldex system. However, I was able to take one of the lead techs for a test drive.

    Around the corner from the dealership, I made a right and with the car in sport mode and laid my foot into the throttle smoothly but firmly. Like clockwork, flashing tcs light came on the dash and wheel spin was detected but I got little reaction from the tech. Made another right on a quiet street and brought the car to a standstill. Without launching, I gave the same firm predal input and got the excessive wheelspin. Dry pavement, from a standstill, traction control on, sport mode (shifter in S) TC still enabled. Still no reaction from the tech. Kinda perplexed, I asked him "did you notice that?" His reply- "I'd need to test drive a few other cars and compare them to yours, but keep in mind that we aren't able to drive the cars very hard".

    Not trying to throw anyone under the bus, but there is nothing needed to compare here. I took a picture of the burnout I did with all the rubber I laid on the ground by my house but didnt even bother to show him. 2 days later, the dealer called back and said that an error code for the haldex pump did come up and that they were going to use the Haldex replacement kit. Good I thought.
    I came back to pick my car up the following day and as my invoice stated- "found haldex pump issue" replaced the pump according to TSB. Test drove the car and is now operating as originally designed and replaced parts under warranty. Great! I left the lot all smiling to have my baby working the way she's supposed to and drove 5 minutes down the road before finding an empty parking lot to see if they really fixed the problem. I engaged launch control, released the brake pedal and completely smoked the front tires. The issue persist.

    That same night I took the car over to a friend who is an Audi tech. After going over the paperwork, for starters we noticed that the inbound mileage was no different than the outbound mileage meaning that they did not infact test drive my vehicle. We pluged in VCDS and scanned for a set of values- a total of 5 were supposed to show up- Zero showed up. There was no proper file uploaded to the TCU.

    5. After the repair haldex kit failed my buddy and I went over a few different scenarios. A) the software they uploaded for the haldex system was improperly uploaded or maybe a driver failed and the service department didn't properly adapt the new system. B)possibly a fuse was out. C)The replacement Haldex kit was fautly. But when I returned home later that night it dawned on both of us that we had forgotten to check the tire tread depth on all four tires.
    Due to the sensors in the haldex system which measure the rotational force and rolling resistance in each wheel, if one tire has substantially more wear than the others, it can definitely show false readings supposedly throw the whole Haldex out of whack. Due to this, I now believe that my haldex is potentially in "limp mode" even though it has been replaced.

    I've had all but 1 tire replaced under warranty under ownership and with 26,000 miles on the car- shame on me but 3 tires had less than 10,000 miles on them while the sole remaining tire had the full 26k on it. With 3 tires reading approximately 7/32nds of tread depth wear, the left rear tire was reading 2/32nds! I was planning to take the car to a different socal dealership with more experience on this issue but was informed that before they can really resolve the problem- the first step would be me replacing the tire. The next day the tire was replaced, the fault codes cleared, Launch control engaged- FAIL once again. I'm kinda scrathcing my head here and the techs don't really know whats up either.
    My car is currently at Pacific Audi and since the repair kit is the latest update Audi has released to resolve the issue, the've now called regional rep in to take a look. There is another S3 at the dealership with the same issue. Haldex replacement kit has not fixed the issue. I'm pretty bummed to say the least.

    Forgot to mention that my car is 100% stock

    This is odd, since the S3 does not have a limited slip differential......

    I'm told there are multiple limited slip differentials in the S3.

    They have XDS+, which is a 'simulated' limited slip. It really only works in cornering by applying brake pressure to the inside spinning wheel - unlike a true mechanical limited slip that will send power to the non spinning wheel.

    1. How you discovered you had the issue: Tried LC and just spun the front tires for a few seconds. At first I thought it was the brand new tires but a thousand miles later I still just spun the fronts.
    2. Mileage- 39k
    3. Model year - 2015, 100% stock
    4. Any error codes - I'd have to check the service summary for the codes the dealer found.
    5. What was done to fix it, and was it under warranty? After the dealer spending about 20 minutes wanting to blame the tire (Hankook Ventus V12 EVO2 XL) I took a technician for a ride. At the first traffic light, I floored it and lost traction at about 3k rpm in first gear (no launch control used). He instantly agreed there was a problem. The dealer kept the car, found TSB then some error codes and replaced the unit under warranty... it launches without issue now. I was a little upset it came to having to drive around a technician to convince the dealer to look at the car but the end result works with me.

    Took a short video, keep in mind I have decent tread on oem conti summer tires, what do you guys think, seems the Haldex is not working on my S3?!
    Yeah, I agree. seems excessive. Mine is Uni Stage 1+ and my fronts squeak and roll over maybe once (which I expect given the weight transfer to the rear) but it just hooks and goes. Shouldn't be laying down a patch with the fronts.

    I wasn't trying to get overly technical about the LSD system, but I know what you're referencing. If the XDS+ system works by applying pressure to the brakes, how does that explain the 2 equal tire marks left by the two front tires? I'm not a tech so I'm trying to get a better understanding of the e-dif systems. All I know if, Launch control engaged- the front's completely light up. I took a photo but it won't seem to show the link in my post.

    Not sure, which is why it's very interesting that it behaved like an LSD.

    XDS does the same thing with brakes that a normal LSD does with gears or clutch packs - shifts torque from the spinning wheel to the non-spinning wheel when it reaches some percentage of difference in torque. With enough power it will spin them both. Issue here is, the Haldex is not distributing torque to the rear so none of them would spin (unless you have enough power to spin all 4 of course)

    I have the "F" rear

    And now I have the UM Haldex tune and I still get some wheel spin not as much as before, but I am stage-2+ ECU / Stage-2 TCU w/Meth.

    Did the tune completely fix it, no. But it did make it feel more planted and more of a push then a pull.

    I have replaced:

    Pump
    Haldex Controller with latest revision and software
    Rear transaxle w/used low mileage unit (19K).

    Is it possible that the used rear had the same issue as my first one maybe. Looking for a L or M version now.

    XDS+ only functions during turning though?

    It looks normal to me, i dont see the front wheels rotating at a noticeable quicker rpm versus the rear.

    Plus it seems as though the rear started rotating almost instantly. Versus a faulty haldex unit creating a ton of front wheel spin before engaging the haldex clutch for the driveshaft.

    Ok sweet only concerned because I'll spin 1st & 2nd and I was scared I had ****ed up the haldex and I stopped by the dealer and talked to the shop foreman (he's ranked #2 in the nation for audi techs) and he said it was normal but you know can never be too safe. I will try to get a couple better videos and further back so that the car stays in frame longer just to be safe but thanks!

    You're welcome. If you try to search some other failed haldex videos you'll notice the difference where the front tires are spinning significantly faster and the rear tires seem to be dragging along. Your unit seems to be working fine going by the video you posted.

    **UPDATE**
    Previous owner had a tune on the car at some point and they voided the warranty. Talked with them about how I didn't know, I didn't do it, blah blah. They of course don't care. Offered me several thousands of dollars off of any new car purchase and free Audi Care for that car. Everything seemed like a nice gesture but if the car is flagged and you "say" you'll never be able to sell it as a CPO, why not just fix my car instead of offering me $10K off a new one and free maintenance.

    The thought crossed my mind. I went through many different situations and possible outcomes as far as getting rid of it. But I was able to get a used differential with supposedly less than "300 miles on it" for a little over $100. So, I'm not concerned about it anymore. Just going to fix my car and ride on. My future vehicles probably won't be of the VAG variety though.

    1. How you discovered you had the issue : Launched and took a slow-mo video, only front tires spin. Losing traction in 2nd gear also
    2. Mileage: 59500
    3. Model year: 2015
    4. Any error codes: yes but don't remember the code, something about Haldex mechanical failure
    5. What was done to fix it, and was it under warranty?: Took it to Audi and it looks like a bad Haldex pump. Still trying to figure out what the next step is. Car is out of warranty. quoted at about $800 + $150 diagnostic so $950 total. Should I bite the bullet and have them fix it or can I buy the pump, oil, and filter and do it myself? Anyone have a kit for a good price where I could do it myself? Let me know what you all think my next step should be.

    Your car is barely out of warranty. I'd contact AoA to see if they will cover it as good faith https://www.audiusa.com/help/contact-us

    audi first, then just do it yourself if no luck. Looks easy enough. ECS tuning among others sells the pump

    If you wanted you $950 for just the pump replacement, definitely run away. That pump can be purchased for less than $175 from multiple places online.

    But also, if you got the mechanical all wheel failure code, the pump isn't the issue. It's the clutch. I got the same code and decided to try a new pump myself just to see and it didn't fix anything. The cheapest I've found the clutch is $1950 vs a whole new differential at $2600.

    Like everyone said though, contact AoA first.

    So I took my car on Tuesday and they didnt even wanna look at it the service manager came and talked to me and explained it was "normal operation" and they didnt do any thing to the car so today I took it to a local audi VW shop and they scanned it and no codes so now I'm debating if there even is any issues or if its it's all in my head

    The front tires smoking on a AWD car isn't normal. Yours may not be to the point where it's generating a code yet. I can only get the code to appear after doing LC.

    Ended up doing it myself, replaced the pump, still doesn't seem to be working. All in all not a bad job at all, if anyone has questions about doing this feel free to ask. My dealership I bought it from paid for half of everything needed (pump, fluid, new bolts and drain/fill plugs) so in the end I only ended up spending about $130 which is fine with me. AWD still not working, looks like it may be the clutch as liljonny16 mentioned. Will call AoA to see about good faith replacement.

    Ouch! I can't recommend anything about the DSG but I can advise about the Haldex. I too had the same code, "AWD Mechanical Malfunction." The dealership recommended I replace the clutch. I replaced the Haldex Control Module just like 2 hours ago and it fixed my issue. So I would start there if I were you. I bought a used one on Ebay.

    I would but there's definitely some messed up gears because when it was on the lift they said it sounded like the gears were grinding gonna call AOA and see what they can do if anything especially since my local dealer didnt want to look at the car at all

    Sorry to hear about your car and hope you can get it fixed. Hope your car has not been modded (Stage 1 or 2), otherwise I would suspect AoA will not cover this. Good luck!
