    2018 RS5 Software Update

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hi,
    Just as an FYI, there is a software update for the 2018 RS5. I was getting a Turbo Wastegate A Stuck Closed check engine light and the software update resolves that. May be other things in the update as well, not sure.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Sorry, not sure if US only. The dealer seemed to know there was an update before I even arrived so you might contact your local dealer.

    I would assume both. I hope this fixes the issues these other people are seeing as well, multiple people on audiworld have been having this same issue. I am at 1600 miles with no issues except a subtle rough idle sometimes but I will make sure my software gets updated in the coming weeks for my first dealer visit. Thanks for the heads up!

    I'm at 1800 miles with mine, I think the check engine light showed at roughly 1600 for me. I was able to scan and clear it the first time.

    Another b9 owner w the same issue here. This is a new update you speak of? When i originally brought the vehicle in for the CEL, they did an "update" and claimed it would fix it. This was about a month ago. Then after it popped up they said it needed an update that wasn't out yet. Im hoping this is the fix. My Rs5 is currently in the shop for a fuel leak so if they have received the update I would love to have them do it....

    It could be new, I'm not sure. I brought it in after I cleared it the first time. This showed up on my invoice for the software update.

    Cool. Was this the first time you had it in for this issue or have you been waiting for them to inform you about the fix? Really hoping this issue is resolved!!

    First time in for the issue. I called to schedule it and Service took the approach of let's analyze and see what's up. I've worked with the Audi Wynnewood service department long enough and they know I've had an OBD scanner on it, so they know I'm not a generic customer so they definitely weren't hiding it from me.

    There are 2 actions for engines in EU:
    TPI 2049281/1, SVM UPDATE 01A248, it is rough idle due to some sw. problems
    and recall action 10F8, TPI 2051299/1, rough idle due to wrong oil ventilation tube

    Ok so I just got off the phone w/ my service advisor as my b9 rs5 is in the shop for a fuel leak. He said that the updated being mentioned is the update they already performed on my car and that it does NOT resolve the waste gate A stuck open code (as I am still getting the check engine light). Still no fix.......

    Those are for RS5 EU but I assume they are also concerning RS4 since thay share most of hardware and software ?
    I am at 14KKm in my RS4 and haven't had any issues so far apart from DRC shocks change due to some production / design faults.
