Hi, ramperfm.

Driving around at night is a drag if you have no headlights. You get to talk to all the nice policemen.

Check your owner's manual to find out which fuse belongs to your headlights. If that fuse also serves other electrical items that are working, then the fuse is fine. If there's a fuse that serves only the headlights, then you have to check that it isn't blown.

The other possibility is that the relay is kaput. The owner's manual should also tell you where to find it. More often than not, it's on a panel near the fuse panel or a similar panel under the dashboard. (It might also be under the hood, mounted on a fender well, for example.) The actual item will be a black or clear plastic box about an inch on a side, which will pop out of the panel when you pull on it. Get a new one: they're cheap.

Less likely causes are a bad headlight switch or a disconnected or shorted wire. Easy/cheap things first.

Good luck.
Ken

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?


I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

Fan under passenger headlight wont turn off--turbo fan??


This does not make sense. The turbo is driven by exhaust gasses. I think you are referring to the thermo switch on the radiator. The car can be switched of and the fan will still run till it reach temprature and then only will it switch off.

Get it back to whomever did the job. Or maybe take it to someone who knows what they're doing. Turbo line is obviously leaking. If it's not cranking even with a jump you may have seized he engine. 2.7's are not cheap!

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


I have the same issue on my 2002 A4. According to my Audi dealer mechanic, there is a sensor on the front suspension that controls the angle of the headlight. Replacing this may resolve the issue.

Headlight wont turn on


Sounds like your headlight switch has failed. I have a 99 Audi A4, and when mine died, it was the same exact problem (it's a known problem area for the Audis). Given that your car is behaving the same way, I'd look into a new headlight switch as a solution. The toggle-for-highbeams feature is wired separate from the normal headlight wiring and is a simpler contact setup. The contacts and wiring and switching for the low and running high beams is more prone to failure. You should be able to find a switch assembly at a salvage yard for less than $15 and can probably change it yourself in a half hour to an hour.
