No brake work done, battery didn't run low,i never use E brake.
Audi Mechanic: Wolfgang, Audi master tech replied 3 years ago
ok the usual suspect is one of the caliper e brake motors is frozen . the issue is now that the caliper that is affected needs to be changed. the motors are not available separately.
scan tool is needed to isolate which one and then after replacement the system needs to be calibrated.
anything else?
if not.....
