Coolant temperature display

Applies to : vehicles with a coolant temperature indicator

The coolant temperature display only functions when the ignition is switched on. To reduce the risk of engine damage, please observe the following notes about the temperature ranges.

Cold range
If only the LEDs at the bottom of the gauge turn ‘on, the engine has not reached operating temperature yet. Avoid high engine speeds, full acceleration, and heavy engine loads.

Normal range
The engine reaches its operating temperature once the LEDs up to the centre of the gauge turn on. If the
2024 Audi A4 Vehicle functions 10indicator light in the instrument cluster display turns on, the coolant temperature is too high

Note

  • Auxiliary headlights and other accessories in front of the air intake impair the cooling effect of the coolant. This increases the risk of the engine overheating during high outside temperatures and heavy engine load.
  • The front spoiler also helps to distribute cooling air correctly while driving. If the spoiler is damaged, the cooling effect will be impaired and the risk of the engine overheating will increase. See an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility for assistance.

Tachometer

The tachometer  1 displays the engine speed in revolutions per minute (RPM). The beginning of the red zone in the tachometer indicates the maximum permissible engine speed for all gears once the engine has been broken in. Before reaching the red zone, you should shift into the next higher gear, select the “D” or “S” selector lever position, or remove your foot from the accelerator pedal.

Engine speed limitation
If the

2024 Audi A4 Engine speed limitation 11indicator light turns on, the engine will be automatically limited to the RPM displayed in the instrument cluster. This will protect the engine components, for example during a cold start or from overheating.

The engine speed limitation is deactivated if you release the accelerator pedal while the engine is at normal operating temperature.

If the engine speed limitation is activated by an engine control malfunction, the
2024 Audi A4 Vehicle functions 11indicator light also turns on. Make sure the engine speed does not go above the speed displayed, for example when downshifting. Drive to an authorized.

Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility immediately to have the malfunction corrected.

Note
The needle in the tachometer may only be in the red area of the gauge for a short period before there is a risk of damaging the engine. The location where the red zone begins varies depending on the engine.

Odometer

2024 Audi A4 Odometer 06

The trip odometer and odometer are displayed in the status bar 4.

The trip odometer shows the distance driven since it was last reset. It can be used to measure short distances. The odometer shows the total distance that the vehicle has been driven.

Resetting the trip odometer

  • To reset the trip odometer to zero, press the reset
    button 1.

Tips
Distances are displayed in mi (miles) or km (kilometers).

Outside temperature display

The outside temperature is displayed in the status bar 4 .

If your vehicle is stationary or if you are driving at very low speeds, the temperature displayed in the instrument cluster may be slightly higher than the actual temperature outside due to heat radiating from the motor.

At temperatures below 41 °F (+5 °C), a snowflake symbol appears in front of the temperature display.

Warning
Do not assume the roads are free of ice based on the outside temperature display. Be aware that there may be ice on roads even when the outside temperature is around 41 °F (+5 °C) and that ice can increase the risk of accidents.

Engine oil temperature indicator
Depending on the vehicle equipment, the engine oil temperature
2024 Audi A4 Engine coolant temperature 23may be indicated by a bar in the instrument cluster.

Applies to: vehicles with Audi virtual cockpit:

  • Open the vehicle functions tab and switch to the enhanced view

Applies to: vehicles with analog instrument cluster:

Open the lap timer

  • When engine oil temperatures are low, the display — °F (— °C) appears in the instrument cluster. The engine has reached its operating temperature when the engine oil temperature is between 176 °F (80 °C) and 248 °F (120 °C) under normal driving conditions. The engine oil temperature may be higher if there is heavy engine load and high temperatures outside. This is not a cause for concern as long as the
    2024 Audi A4 Odometer 07indicator lights do not turn on.

Boost indicator

Applies to: vehicle with the coolest indication

Depending on the vehicle equipment, the current engine load (meaning the current boost pressure) may be indicated by a bar in the instrument cluster.

  • Applies to: vehicles with Audi virtual cockpit:

Open the vehicle functions tab and switch to the enhanced view 2.

  • Applies to: vehicles with analog instrument cluster:

Open the lap timer

Changing the display

  • Turn the left thumbwheel on the multifunction steering wheel 7 until the desired display is shown.

Resetting values to zero
Requirement: the Consumption, Short-term memory or Long-term memory display must be selected.

  • To reset the values in one of the memories to zero, press and hold the left thumb wheels on the multifunction steering wheel for one second,
  • Select on the instrument cluster: vehicle functions tab > 2024 Audi A4 Vehicle functions 09 button > Reset mi.

Displays in the trip computer
The following displays may be shown, depending on the vehicle equipment:

  • Time and date
  • Average consumption
  • Short-term memory overview
  • Long-term memory overview
  • Energy consumers
  • Driver assistance
  • Traffic sign recognition and traffic light information

Short-term memory and long-term memory
Short-term memory collects driving information from the time the ignition is switched on until it is switched off. If you continue driving within two hours after switching the ignition off, the new values will be included when calculating the current trip information.

Unlike the short-term memory, the long-term memory is not erased automatically. You can select the time period for evaluating trip information yourself.

Average consumption
The current consumption can be shown using a bar graph. The average consumption stored in the short-term memory is also displayed. If the bar is green, your vehicle is saving energy (for example, using recuperation).

Energy consumers
The Energy consumer’s view lists other equipment that is currently affecting fuel consumption. The display shows up to three equipment items. The equipment using the most power is listed first. If more than three items using power are switched on, the equipment that is currently using the most power is displayed. A gauge also shows the current total consumption of all other equipment.

Tips
The date, time of day, and time and date format can be set
