    You'll need press brake hazard and high beam and then you can get access to the vehicle diagnostics without ignition.
    I have done that and cleared codes, basic options was not highlighted so did not have ability to reset, do I have to enter a security code to get access and if so what is it? Because none of the ignition lights come on I wonder if there is a different issue. Been through all fuses, all OK.

    Yes (DUH!) Battery is good, nearly new, nonetheless I charged it all night, problem persists.

    06 Audi A6 ignition problem solved - YouTube

    Have a look at this video this should explain it, because yours is a manual I think the key doesn't get stuck.

    You are rather ahead of me here, the computer is just borrowed, I don't really know what I am doing. I looked in 15 Steering, found and deleted codes (the date and time on those codes was some hours after the initial problem arose) but the options button where I had hoped to find the reset option was not available. Where is the start authorisation module?

    I think it's module 5 the acc/start auth module that you need to scan and there should be a fault for a steering column lock actuator.

    Yes there are faults relating to that in Add 05 acc/start, add 08 hvac, add 09 cent elec and add 19 can gateway. Laptop battery flat have to wsit a while. So there should hopefully be a reset option in the 05 acc/start area.

    Does anyone know if this works in vcds-lite? Or does it need full blown vcds?

    Thanks
