Self Study Program 990503 – The 2012 Audi A7 Convenience Electronics and Audi Active Lane Assist

VAG SSP 990503. This Self-Study Program will take a closer look at some of the convenience system innovations. For instance, a keyless starting system, referred to as Keyless Go, is used for the first time as standard equipment on an Audi. There is no longer an ignition lock on the instrument panel.

There are many innovations on the 2012 Audi A7. Some are larger and affect more systems than others, but they are all significant breakthroughs in this vehicle class.

Pressing the start button in the center console starts the engine. This feature is similar to the Advanced Key option offered on other Audi models.

For the 2012 A7, a Keyless Entry system is also offered as an option, making it an ideal supplement to the keyless starting system. Audi active lane assist will not be available at the start of A7 production but will be introduced during the 2012 model year.

This next generation of the lane departure warning system automatically intervenes to prevent drivers from inadvertently leaving their driving lanes.
