Does your ionizer turn off?

Default Does your ionizer turn off?

I'm noticing that on my 2019 A8L, that after a while (randomly), that the ionizer function turns itself off after I explicitly tell it to turn on.

There are not enough D5 owners on Audiworld to get a good sample, so thought I'd ask you Q8 folks.

Are you seeing this behavior? If so, pls lmk and I will report this to Audi corporate as a bug.

Doesn’t the new system have a particulate monitoring system and perhaps it shuts itself off automatically?
The ‘ol “Your Audi knows better than you.” trick.

No, no such sensor exists as per the parts diagrams I have perused through. Good idea though!

OK. Maybe it is not in North American market then.
From Audi:
"The air quality package will be introduced to selected markets in 2018 and expanded to include a particulate measuring sensor. It determines the level of particulates in the ambient air and compares this reading with the interior air. Filter efficiency is displayed on the on-board monitor – an important service especially for customers in urban areas."

Many thanks for digging this up! If that's the case, it's probably me that made an oversight. I'll take a perusal again.

NP. I would be interested to see pics of the onboard monitor display if it truly does exist on the Q8 or A8. Any pics if you find it would be cool. Seems like it might be an interesting system.

Thanks for the question! As a result of said question I found a neat article below. In the article, there is a photo of this, which is also below. On my D5 it does NOT show the pollutant inside/outside though, but it would be neat if it did!

Yes we do if you bought the air quality package.
