RepairPal Expert Overview
The electric coolant pump which acts to keep the engine at the proper running temperature may become blocked from debris from the cooling system. This would cause the pump to overheat, and possibly cause a fire.
Recall repairs on your Audi must be performed by a Audi dealership. Audi will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in February, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Audi dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The electric coolant pump for the engine may get clogged by cooling system debris and may overheat, causing a fire hazard. Dealers will update the software so that the power supply to the coolant pump is deactivated if the pump becomes blocked with debris, preventing overheating of the pump free of charge to resolve the concern.
