2011 to 2016 Audi S4 – How to launch control

January 4, 2017 in Audi A4 B8 (2007 to 2015)

The launch control on your 2011 to 2016 Audi S4 S-tronic provides the best acceleration possible when starting from standstill.

To enable it, first make sure that the engine is at normal operating temperature and that you have the stering wheel facing in straigh line.

Step 1. With the engine running, press the ESP OFF button. The ESP Off light in the instrument cluster will appear with a message “ASR Off Caution! Limited driving stability”.

espoffbutton

Step 2. Move the gear selector lever to the S position.

Step 3. Press the brake pedal strongly with your left foot and hold it down.

Step 4. At the same time, press the accelerator pedal down completely with your rightfoot until the engine reaches and maintains a high RPM (3000 to 4500 rpm).

Step 5. Within 5 seconds, remove your foot from the brake pedal and… there you go!

Be aware that the transmission temperature may increase considerably after using the Launch Control Program. If that happens, Launch Control will be unavailable for a few minutes. It will be available again after a cooling period. When accelerating using the Launch Control program, all vehicle parts are subject to heavy loads. This can result in increased wear.

Only use the Launch Control Program when road and traffic conditions allow it and other drivers will not be endangered

  • Dirty coolant must not be reused.

– Install engine mounts without tension or preload by aligning engine with shaking
motions before tightening engine mounts.
– Install lock carrier with attachments.

=> Repair Manual, Body Exterior, Repair Group 50
– Install exhaust system free of stress.
– Attach vacuum lines => page 10-28

After connecting battery, enter anti-theft code for radio.

=> Radio operating manual
– Fully close front power windows to stop.

– Then activate all power window switches (“up”) for at least one second to activate
automatic window raising/lowering.
– Set clock to correct time.
– Check engine oil level before starting engine.

Tightening torques

Note:

  • Tightening torques are valid only for nuts and bolts that are lightly greased, oiled, covered with a thin coat of phosphate or blackened.
