Issue

Issue:
On certain vehicles, if you spill liquid on the rear seat, the gateway control module could be damaged. If this happens, the vehicle may enter emergency mode and suddenly lose power to the wheels.
Note: The power steering and braking systems will continue to work. You may also see warning messages on the instrument panel when this happens.

Safety Risk:
A sudden loss of power to the wheels may increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions:
Audi will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to install a protective cover on the gateway control module.
