Body
Tailgate
In the new Audi A6 Avant ´05, an inner tailgate hinge
is implemented for the first time.
The hinge is attached to the upper roof crossrail at
the rear so that it is located behind the tailgate seal,
and thus inside the occupant cell.
344_046
When the tailgate is closed, the hinge is concealed
behind the trim panel and is not visible from the
interior.
344_047
This hinge arrangement and function has the
following advantages:
– no corrosion,
– no sealing problems,
– internal wiring,
– no grommets are needed to seal through-holes
in the body,
– larger cargo area
possibility for electric tailgate drive.

Occupant protection
Safety system
The goal was to implement a protection system that offers a very high level of safety, thereby raising still
further the high safety standard set by the current Audi fleet.
The many safety requirements for the new Audi A6 Avant ´05 included meeting all current legislation, as well
as achieving a top rating in consumer tests.
Audi's internal specifications often increase the challenges to the development team.
This was the case with the Audi A6 saloon introduced to the market in the 2005 model year; likewise with the
new Audi A6 Avant ´05.
The occupant protection system in the Audi A6 Avant ´05 was largely adopted from the saloon. Due to the
modifications to the body, however, several components were adapted to the new parameters.
A new gas generator with dual threshold deployment for the front passenger front airbag will be implemented
in the Audi A6 saloon in early 2005. This module will be fitted to all models world-wide.
The new Audi A6 Avant ´05 will be equipped with this airbag from rollout.

For further information on the safety
system, please refer to Self-Study
Programme 323 - Audi A6 ´05.
Front passenger front airbag
– Airbag igniter 1, front passenger side N131
– Airbag igniter 2, front passenger side N132
The front passenger airbag consists of a casing in which are housed two pyrotechnic gas generators
separated by a partition. A propellant in the form of tablets and hollow tabs is used.

If igniter I is electrically activated by the airbag control unit J234, it ignites priming charge I. Under the
resulting pressure, the flame passes through the rupture disc and ignites propellant charge I.
On account of the hollow propellant tabs, the complete propellant charge ignites more quickly.
The metal filter cools and treats the developing gas before it flows through the outlets to the airbag.
The task of the first gas generator is to inflate the airbag.

The task of the second gas generator is to inflate the airbag to its full size.
The second gas generator has exactly the same function as the first gas generator.

Engine
The 2.7l V6 TDI with common rail
The 3.0l V6 TDI was modified in several respects to
fill the gap between the 2.5l V6 TDI with distributor
injection pump and the 3.0l V6 TDI with common rail
injection. A wide range of diesel engines in various
sizes is therefore available to the customer.

Modifications to the 2.7l engine
– The stroke was reduced from 91.4 mm to
83.1 mm by modifying the crankshaft, con-rod
and piston
– Cast exhaust manifold and steel compensator
without air-gap insulation
– Deletion of the shield plates above the manifolds
– Piezo injectors with eight-port nozzles instead of
seven-port nozzles
– An inlet restrictor has been integrated into the
fuel rail for each injector
Crankshaft drive
The basis is the 3.0l V6 TDI CR engine, i.e. the engine
block with 90 mm cylinder spacing was adopted,
likewise the 83.0 mm cylinder bore.
The crankshaft, the con-rod and the pistons were
modified so that a swept volume of 2698 cm3 was
obtained by changing the stroke.

In-rail restrictor
The closing of the injector produces a pulse which
propagates from the injector to the fuel rail and is
reflected back to the injector. In this connection, the
injector pintle and injector pintle seat are subjected
to a high mechanical load (bounce). A restrictor is
installed upstream of each injector to dampen the
pulses in the fuel rail. This restrictor dampens the
incoming and outgoing pulses and so prevents the
injector pintle from colliding with the injector pintle
seat.
The restrictor is mechanically press-fitted into the
fuel rail.

Piezo injector
To reduce particulate emissions still further and to
optimise combustion, 8-port injectors are used in
place of 7-port injectors. This enables the fuel to be
more finely atomised and provides a smoother
combustion process.
Note
When replacing the injector, pay attention
to the genuine parts number!

Running gear
A steel-spring suspension is used in the basic version of Audi A6 Avant `05. In comparison with the running
gear in the A6 saloon, the set-ups for the springs, dampers and anti-roll bars have been revised. In the Avant,
too, there are suspension systems for front-wheel-drive and quattro versions. The dynamic suspension
system is available in the basic version. A sport suspension, which lowers the overall car's ride height by
15 mm compared to the dynamic suspension system, is available as an optional extra. Heavy-duty running
gear, which raises the car's ride height by 15 mm compared to the dynamic suspension system, is also
optional.

Adaptive air suspension (aas)
A modified aas system is optional in the Audi A6 Avant `05. By comparison with the aas in the A8, there is no
distinction to be made between the aas standard suspension and the aas sports suspension. The following
fundamental differences exist between the aas in the A6 and the aas in the A8:
aas is also available in combination with MMI Basic
the control was adapted for the A6, with modified ride
heights compared to the A8
modified mechanical design of the dampers and
modified damping control

Dampers
The Audi A6 Avant ´05 with aas also has
continuously adjustable rebound and compression
damping characteristics.
The front and rear axle dampers differ in respect of
their design from the dampers on the A8. The
electrically activated damping valve is located on
the exterior of the damper tube.
For this reason, and also because the dampers for
the A8 and A6 are sourced from different systems
suppliers, we refer to the suspension system on the
A6 as a Continuously Controlled Electronic
Suspension (CES) system.

344_017
Separation of the rear axle springs and
dampers
The advantages of this configuration are an
optimised through-loading width and low boot
floor. A boot protects the complete air spring
against ingress of dirt. Due to the size of the air
springs, no additional air volume is required, which
is the case with the A8 D3. The boot can be replaced
by a service workshop.
A new aluminium trapezoidal link was developed for
the aas.

identical in design and function to those of the
allroad quattro and A8.
Both units are now mounted on a common bracket.

Ride heights
The modes implemented in the Audi A6 Avant ´05 are the same as in the A8. However, the ride heights are
different. The following conditions apply to the aas in the Audi A6 Avant ´05:
In "dynamic" mode, the car's ride height is lowered permanently by 15 mm compared to "automatic" mode.
When the "lift" mode is selected, the car body is raised by 15 mm compared to "automatic" mode.
The lowering of the suspension by 15 mm at motorway speeds in "automatic" mode is also implemented in
the Audi A6 Avant ´05. In the A6, there is no further reduction in ride height in "dynamic" mode, which is the
case in the A8.
The same conditions as on the A8 must be met in order to select and quit the various modes.

New special tools
The following new special tools are used for aas in
the Audi A6 Avant ‘05:
T 40082/1-6 spring blocker for air springs
Due to the modified installation dimensions, the
spring blockers used for the A8 are unsuitable for
the A6. The advantage of using spring blockers on
the A6 front axle is that subsequent replacement of
the upper transverse rods is no longer needed.
344_018
T 40081 ramp
When the system is fully vented , the suspension
will be so low that, in case of unfavourable
dimensional tolerances, a car jack cannot be used.
In such case, the vehicle is driven up onto the 8 cm
high ramps. A car jack or an auto-hoist can then be
used.
A new test adapter with the type designation
VAS 1598/53 is used for the air spring control unit.

344_016
adaptive cruise control (acc)
A new generation of the acc is used in the
Audi A6 Avant `05. This acc incorporates the
following modifications:
the exterior dimensions and weight of the acc unit
(sender and control unit) were substantially
reduced.
Sensor / control unit in the A8
Sensor / control unit in the A6
344_015
The number of radar transceivers integrated into the sender was increased from three to four.
As a result, it was possible to increase the beam angle from 8 degrees to 16 degrees. By increasing the range
of the sensor, objects in the path of the vehicle can be detected earlier. The maximum range of the object
detector was increased to 180 metres from 150 metres. The acc functionality was significantly improved with
regard to lane-changing and winding country roads.
180 m
344_033
21
Running gear
A heater was integrated into the bumper insert in front of the sender. It effectively prevents the build-up of
snow or ice on the surface of the bumper in front of the sender in wintry road conditions. As a result, higher
system availability is assured.
The heater is powered by the adaptive cruise control unit.
The heater is switched on and off in dependence on the ambient temperature.
The dynamic response of the vehicle in acc mode
under acceleration and under braking can now be
adapted to suit the driver's preferences by selecting
a driving program in addition to the distance setting
function. Three different driving modes can be
activated with the MMI (for detailed information,
refer to the current operating instructions).

ESP
The Bosch 8.0 ESP system previously featured in the A6 saloon will also be used in the Audi A6 Avant
`05.Several new functions will be implemented for use of the Bosch 8.0 ESP system in the Audi A6 Avant ´05.
To implement these auxiliary functions, the processing power of the ESP control unit was enhanced by
increasing the clock frequency to 60 MHz from 48 MHz. The new control unit will also be rolled out at the same
time in the A6 saloon.
Modified hydraulic brake assistant control for vehicles with acc
When the vehicle is travelling, acc continuously monitors objects in front of the vehicle within the range of the
radar sensor. The object detection function remains active even after the acc function has been deactivated by
the driver. The system has the capability to assess the "hazard potential" of a traffic situation. It does so by
evaluating a variety of parameters, including the number, position and speed of objects detected, the
distance to the objects detected, own vehicle speed etc.If a "potential hazard" is identified, the brake system is
prefilled and the cut-in threshold of the brake assistant is reduced.
Automatic activation of the hazard warning light system
If the brakes are applied hard, the hazard warning
light system is activated automatically to alert
traffic following on behind. On vehicles with the
Highline trim, the surfaces of the brake lights are
also enlarged, depending on the country
specification.
344_040
Extended understeer correction
When a vehicle is understeering, it can be stabilised by braking the wheels on the inside of the corner.
However, if the cornering speed of the vehicle is too high to achieve the required curve radius, this action
alone will not be sufficient. In such case, all four wheels are braked and engine torque is simultaneously
reduced. A slightly higher brake pressure is applied to the inside rear wheel. In this way, the road speed of the
vehicle is reduced and the vehicle is stabilised.
23
Running gear
Automatic stabilisation of the car-trailer combination
Slight swinging movements of a trailer can amplify
in such a way as to cause a critical driving situation.
This situation usually occurs at road speeds
between 75 and 120 kph.
If the trailer begins to swing when the vehicle is
travelling at a speed above the critical threshold, the
oscillation amplitude of the trailer will progressively
increase. The only way to reduce the swinging of the
trailer is to reduce speed to below the critical
threshold.
344_038
The swinging movements also excite periodic
oscillation of the towing vehicle about its vertical
axis. These yaw movements are monitored by the
yaw rate sender and evaluated by the ESP control
unit. If defined limits are exceeded, the ESP control
unit instructs the engine control unit to reduce
torque in order to slow the vehicle down. If this
action is insufficient, all four wheels are braked
simultaneously by the ESP control unit.
Enhanced acc braking comfort
On vehicles with acc, two additional pressure
sensors are installed in the lines between the ESP
unit and the front-axle brake calipers. The previous
method, whereby the actual brake pressure was
calculated in the control unit, is less accurate than
the direct measurement method, particularly at low
brake pressures. Using the data supplied by the
pressure sensors , ESP can control the build-up of
brake pressure more precisely. This results in
shorter reaction times, and braking becomes more
comfortable.

Immobiliser in automatic gearbox
In the Audi A6 Avant '05, the automatic gearbox was
integrated into the immobiliser. This is the case with
both 6-speed automatic gearbox 09L and
multitronic gearbox 01J. With model year '06 or
later, the automatic gearboxes in the A6 saloon and
in the A8 will also have an immobiliser function.
The immobiliser still has the type designation
"Immobiliser 4", because it uses the same
technology as in the A8 '03.
These gearboxes have a control unit which is
integrated into the gearbox (mechatronics). The
relatively sophisticated, and hence secure,
installation location serves as a deterrent to parts
theft. Because engagement for power transmission
is dependent on the gearbox control unit, this
immobiliser offers good protection against vehicle
theft.

Matching
The procedure for matching the gearbox control
unit is similar to the procedure for matching the
engine control unit.
The immobiliser still has the type designation
"Immobiliser 4", because it uses the same
technology as in the A8 '03.
Furthermore, the gearbox is able to accept a new
identity. If a key is stolen and the complete key set is
replaced, all control units integrated into the
immobiliser can assume a new identity.
Response to non-matched control unit
If only the gearbox control unit is not matched, can
the engine can be started in the usual fashion. The
gearbox control unit detects the missing or false
immobiliser information. This is indicated to the
driver by an inverted selector lever position
indicator on the centre display of the dash panel
insert. If a new control unit is used, the vehicle can
be operated in an emergency mode with a
maximum speed of approx. 20 kph, provided that
the control unit has not previously been matched to
any other vehicle.
If the control unit has already been installed in
another vehicle, emergency operation will not be
possible. The selector lever can be engaged by the
driver. However, the control unit will prevent tractive
power from flowing to the output shaft. As with
other immobiliser components, it is only possible to
match such a control unit in a vehicle of the same
model, i.e. a gearbox which has already been
matched to an A8 cannot be matched to an A6.
Gearbox modifications
multitronic
The 01J gearbox has no mechanical emergency
running mode. The modifications to the immobiliser
relate only to the software and certain electronic
components in the gearbox control unit.
325_071
6-speed automatic gearbox
In the case of the 09L and 09E gearboxes, the
hydraulic control unit was modified in addition to
the software and the hardware so that there is no
power transmission when deenergised. To achieve
this, the characteristics of several electric pressure
control valves have been inverted.

Tailgate drive control units J605 and J756
Introduction
For increased user convenience, an automatic
tailgate is optional in the new Audi A6 Avant ´05. The
automatic opening and closing function is
implemented by two electric motors mounted on
the tailgate hinges. Each electric motor has a stepup gear, a magnetic coupling, measuring sensors
and an electronic control unit. The tailgate drive on
the driver side (left-hand side) is the system master;
it is connected to the convenience CAN bus. The
tailgate drive on the front passenger side is the
slave.

Automatic opening
Opening of the automatic tailgate can be initiated
by pressing the centre button on the remote control
key, or by pulling the release button on the driver's
door, or by pressing the handle on the tailgate. The
opening cycle can be interrupted by repeating the
initiating operation. Pressing again the centre
button on the remote control key or the tailgate
release button in the driver's door continues the
interrupted opening cycle.

Saving the limit position of the tailgate
If the tailgate was stopped in an intermediate
position, this position can be saved as a future end
position. To do this, the "close" button on the
tailgate must be pressed for at least 5 s. Please note
that this function is only available as of a minimum
opening angle of 45 degrees.
344_045
"Close" button in the tailgate
Automatic closing
For safety reasons, automatic closing can only be initiated with the tailgate "close" button or with the tailgate
handle. Automatic closing can also be interrupted by repeating either operation.
Pressing the "close" button or the tailgate handle again would, however, not continue the closing cycle, but
would initiate an opening cycle.
The magnetic coupling
The torque generated by the electric motor to open
and close the tailgate is transmitted via a magnetic
coupling. The magnetic coupling consists of a
permanent magnet and a solenoid. When the
tailgate is opening, the magnetic effect of the
permanent magnet is intensified by the solenoid so
that a sufficiently high torque can be transmitted
from the electric motor.
The permanent magnet alone can hold the tailgate
in an open position against its weight and against
the pressure of the gas-filled spring. When the
tailgate is opened or closed manually, the solenoid
produces a magnetic field which neutralises the
magnetic effect of the permanent magnet.
The magnetic coupling is open and the tailgate can
move freely.

Convenience electronics
Manual tailgate operation
When the tailgate is moved manually from a
stopped intermediate position, the deenergised
holding torque is overcome and the "Manual" mode
is activated. This manual movement is detected by
means of Hall sensors, whereupon the control units
energise the couplings in the "freewheel" direction.
When movement stops, the couplings is
deenergised after approximately one second and
the tailgate holds its position automatically.
A second possible way to operate the tailgate
manually is to open the closed tailgate by means of
the tailgate handle button. The couplings will then
also be energised in the "freewheel" direction. This
state is maintained for approximately 0.5 seconds
after releasing the handle button. If no manual
operation is detected during this phase, the
couplings will again be energised in the "open"
direction and the tailgate will open automatically.

Speed control
The torque needed to open and close the tailgate is
dependent upon several factors, such as the
momentary vehicle position, ambient temperature
and momentary tailgate position. For this reason, a
speed regulator was implemented in the control
unit; it adjusts the momentary motor speed to a
default speed characteristic. Motor speed is
controlled via a high-frequency PWM signal which
controls the motor current.
34
Sensors
Road speed is monitored by a Hall sensor on the left
tailgate drive. The right tailgate drive also has a Hall
sensor which detects when "manual" mode is
required. An additional three small Hall sensors on
the left-hand side monitor the direction of
movement of the tailgate and the current tailgate
position. The Hall sensors are also used for antipinch protection.
This is implemented by a speed/distance detection
system. If an obstruction detected, the drive will
stop. If an obstruction is detected during a closing
cycle, the tailgate is reopened approx. 4 degrees.

Transport mode and standby current management
When transport mode is activated, the tailgate
control unit is activated, too. In this condition, the
tailgate must be operated manually. The electric
motors are deactivated and only manual operation
is possible. The same applies to standby current
management from power-off stage 2.
Deactivating the electrical tailgate drive
The following system faults will cause the electric
tailgate drive to be deactivated:·
– No CAN communication with driver door control
unit J386
– No CAN communication with convenience
system central control unit J393
– No CAN communication with entry and start
authorisation control unit J518
– Components protection in convenience system
central control unit J393 active
– The tailgate power latching system does not
start up when the tailgate is open or the startedup power latching system provides no feedback
to the convenience system central control unit

●
The tailgate control unit J605 receives the vehicle speed signal from the ABS with EDL control unit J104.
For safety reasons, automatic tailgate opening and closing are deactivated at a vehicle speed of 3 kph.
●
If the tailgate control unit J605 receives from the trailer detector control unit the information "trailer
detected", the automatic tailgate operation will also be deactivated for safety reasons.

●
The tailgate control unit master J605 communicates with the tailgate control unit slave J756 via a singlewire bus specified by systems supplier Valeo (no LIN bus).
●
Via the wake-up line, the tailgate control unit master J605 can wake up the tailgate control unit slave J756.
This is the case if the convenience CAN bus is reactivated in Sleep Mode, or if the interior tailgate release is
operated while the convenience CAN bus is in Sleep Mode. The slave tailgate control unit wakes up the
master control unit J605 if manual operation of the tailgate is detected .
●
The function block of the rear right power latching motor shows two sensors. They have the task of
monitoring the two end positions of the power latching system and informing the convenience system
central control unit when they are reached.

Slave start connectors in the engine bay
To make the A6 more service-friendly, slave start
connectors are installed in the engine bay of the
Audi A6 Avant '05 and the A6 saloon from model
year '06.
Here, the slave start connectors are much more
readily accessible than in the luggage
compartment. The slave start connectors are
located above the right-hand suspension strut
tower. The positive pole is concealed below a red
plastic cover. The slave start connector was deleted
from the luggage compartment.
344_023
The advantage of locating the slave start connector
in the engine bay is that the charger cannot be
directly terminated to the battery by mistake. In the
event that a charger is terminated directly to the
battery, the energy management control unit J644
not know if the battery is charged, and, in some
situations, may activate power-off stages even in
case of a charged battery. This will ultimately cause
loads to be shut down unnecessarily.
