    Faraday Signal Blocker Pouch ..

    I believe it is the keyless entry that poses the risk. This is combatted by the bonnet having to be open to use the obd2 port and the keys going dormant. if you’re still worried you could get a pouch or put the key in a metal tin.

    Fault spotted at end of warranty

    @desi112 Could also be the g65? sensor. I had this on my 2021 A6. When it went hot outside the ac would stop working, then randomly kick in after a few days. You only really noticed it when it was hot, when it was cooler it seemed to be working enough to cool the air.

    Approved Used questions
