Which parts of your car are affected by the exhaust fan?
Posted October 04, 2018 06:17:25A couple of months ago, I was driving my car and I noticed that the exhaust fans were down-blasting my exhaust system, which is a common cause of low horsepower in the Audi A6.
I tried to turn them on and off, but they just wouldn’t start up.
After some research, I learned that there is a small, proprietary sensor on the rear of the exhaust pipes that is able to turn on and turn off the fans remotely.
When the sensor is triggered, the fans start up and the car gets warm, causing the engine to spin up.
The sensors have an auto-shutoff mode, so you don’t have to worry about it happening again, but it’s a little annoying when it does.
I had no idea why the sensors were down on my car, but now I do.
I’ve been using these sensors since I was in college, so I know that they are reliable.
I also know that the sensor that turns the fans off is fairly cheap and easy to replace, and it’s also easy to use, so this is something I can take care of.
I went to the Audi dealership and spoke with the salesperson, and after a little discussion, he gave me a free set of the sensors and told me to replace them if I needed them.
I got the sensors, and I put them on my A6, and my engine ran great.
The problem is that I had to replace my exhaust fan after about two years.
I bought this set of sensors as part of a package deal from Audi for $150.
I paid $200 to the dealership, and they told me that they had to get rid of the sensor because it wasn’t working as advertised.
I have a few things going on right now, so it’s not the first time that I’ve had a sensor malfunction, so maybe it’s just me, but I’m definitely concerned.
I emailed Audi a few times about the issue, and the company said that they were aware of the issue and were working on getting the sensors back on my vehicle.
The sensor does seem to work fine for me right now though, so that’s good news.
