Audi Q7: Steering

Description

Electromechanical steering supports the driver's steering movements by electronically adapting the power steering depending on the vehicle speed. The settings depend on the selected Audi drive select* mode.

All-wheel steering

Applies to: vehicles with all-wheel steering

Additional steering ability at the rear axle improves the driving dynamic and stability. At low speeds, the rear wheels are steered in the opposite direction from the front wheels to reduce the turning radius. At high speeds, steering the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels improves the vehicle response and driving stability.

Messages

The following messages may appear depending on the vehicle equipment:

Steering: malfunction! Please stop vehicle

The power steering may have failed. Adapt your driving style immediately to compensate for the fact that it may be more difficult to turn the steering wheel, and stop your vehicle in a safe location as soon as possible. Secure the vehicle against rolling before exiting the vehicle. Do not continue driving. See an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility for assistance.

Steering: malfunction! Please stop vehicle.

Pay attention to distance at side

The rear axle steering may have failed. More space on the road may be needed at the side of the vehicle, and the turning radius may be much larger. Slow down immediately, and stop your vehicle as soon as possible in a safe location with enough space at the sides of the vehicle. Do not continue driving. See an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility for assistance.

Steering: malfunction! Please stop vehicle

There is a malfunction in the electronic steering lock. You cannot turn the ignition on. Secure the vehicle against rolling before exiting the vehicle. Do not tow your vehicle because it cannot be steered. See an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility for assistance.

Steering: malfunction! You can continue driving

There is a malfunction in the steering system.

Steering may be more difficult or more sensitive.

Adapt your driving style. Have the steering system checked immediately by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility.

Please note that the red indicator light may turn on after restarting the engine. Do not continue driving if it does.

Steering: malfunction! Adapt driving style.

Larger turning radius

The rear axle steering may have failed. The vehicle will have a larger turning radius, and the stability when driving around curves will be comparable to a vehicle without rear axle steering. Drive carefully to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility to have the malfunction corrected.

Steering lock: malfunction! Please contact Service

There is a malfunction in the electronic steering lock. Drive immediately to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility to have the malfunction repaired.

WARNING

Do not tow your vehicle if there is a malfunction in the electronic steering lock because this increases the risk of an accident.

Tips

  • If there is a malfunction, the steering wheel may be crooked when driving straight.
  • If the or indicator light only stays on for a short time, you may continue driving.
