I have a 98 with the same problem, I solved it by ordering new bulbs (9 total) from

make sure you get at least 9 and replace all the bulbs because as I would replace the ones that were burnt out it'd burn the old ones out. The original ones are orange I believe. Some of them looked fine but were actually burnt. Hope this helps!

I have the same problem, although on mine certain things light up like the pin on the rev counter and half of the speedo. the battery did die recently and that had to be changed which knocked out the alarm system. this was then disabled. if you have changed your battery recently then this may be the cause.

Cheeck some other sites for resolutions as i haev seen some

Change the side light on an aidi a4 1999

Sidelight may mean the turn signal on the side of the car (sidemarker) or the turn signal right next to the headlights.

To replace sidemarker, you need slide it toward the front of the car. You may need to use a little bit of force. Then, pry the bulb out of the fencer hole with your fingers.

For turn signal light next to the headlights, see if you can figure out how to do it from the You tube video:

Just bought a 1998 audi a4 as soon as i turn the ignition on the dash illulnination lights come on!! i can dim them but thats not the point i do not want them to come on till i turn on the lights no point...

That's how the car was built - until the midyear facelift in 99 (the 99.5 model), the dash lights were always illuminated. Even with VagCom I haven't seen a way to disable this - the car is hardwired to light up the dash with the key on.
