You will need a scan tool to diagnose your airbag problem (and not the one at Auto Zone---dealer or body shop only). Once you have the code, check out this website. It's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag systems, airbag lights and resetting the system. It shows you the location of the components and the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights after a deployment. Not all vehicles need everything replaced. Although it's a pay site, it certainly is worth the money ($14.95 for 1 day full access) http://www.airbagsolutions.com/
http://www.airbagsolutions.com/scanlist.aspx
This is quite a complete website with pictures, descriptions and factory fault code charts as well as a working demo that shows just how easy these repairs can be.

Had a similar problem audi come into my shop.  No headlights, blower motor would not work, wipers would not work.  After dinking around found ignition switch wires had burn't up.  Remove top steering column by taking out two very small philips screws from under column.  Look at top LH side of column w/ top cover removed.  Probably will find wires burnt up.

SOURCE: audi tt 3.2 quattro oil filter change

The insert or cartridge filters are easy to change..You must jack up the front of the car, remove the engine belly pan. in the front of the motor there is a black cylindrical housing for the oil filter cartridge..On the bottom is a cap that just screws off..Unscrew the cap, take it off, slide the old insert off, then slide the new one on..Screw the cap back on and voila! you are finished..If the insert came with a new rubber o-ring, make sure to replace the old one on the cap.

SOURCE: Audi TT HID bulb needs replacing

You can change the bulb easily yourself in about five minutes, especially on the passenger side. You may want to disconnect the battery, though I don't know if that is necessary. You may also want to handle the bulbs wearing latex or nitrile gloves so as to not get your skin oil on the glass.

1. Remove the decorative cover that conceals the Coolant reservior. There is a single philips screw near the firewall that holds the cover down.

2. Find the back of the headlight and pull the metal wire clip that holds the back of the headlight cover toward the engine. Remove the cover.

3. Look inside and find the back of the HID bulb--it will be toward the outside fender. Twist the connector until it separates.

4. There is a retainer ring that holds the bulb in. Again, twist that until it comes loose. The bulb should come right out.

5, Put the new bulb in, noticing the notch is on top. Also, attach the retainer ring. It is marked "Top" to help orient it. Reattach the connector with a twist.

6. Make sure everything is firmly in place. Reconnect your battery and test the lights. Finish putting anything else back on.

Good luck.

SOURCE: audi tt tail lights won't go out

I had this issue a few months ago, turned out to a bad brake light switch located under the dash (directly behind the steering column).

2003 TT Air Bag & Seat Belt warning lights not eluminating


It is fairly complicated to remove the instrument panel to replace the light bulb. It requires you to remove the steering wheel and airbag module and several other components.

The sound you hear may be the coolant pump for the turbo.

You have a bad Passenger Air Bag Deactivation Indicator. The bulb that shows when the passenger air bag is off.
Have seen alot of these go bad especially in police cars. The part number you need is 5W1Z-10A936-A.

Airbag light staying on


You need to use VagCom (the Audi diagnostic software - available for free at www.ross-tech.com, and you'll need to buy a cable from eBay), and you can find out which bag is tripping the light. If you have side bags in the front seats, chances are it's one of those - moving the seat too far back or down can strain the connector under the seat and cause it to open just enough to trip the light (happens on the Audi A4 all the time - mine happened three times before I fixed it for good). Once you know which bag it is, you can fix it. If it's one of the seat bags, zip tie the connector tightly to hold it together. Under the seat, the airbag has its own separate connector, and it's yellow (by law, all airbag connectors are yellow). Zip-tie it tightly without pinching any wires, then turn off the light. You should be good to go after that.

Air bag warning light stays on


You have to use VagCom (the diagnostic software that Audi uses) to turn off an airbag warning light. If you have a laptop that can go out to your driveway, go to www.ross-tech.com and download VagCom (it's free). Go on eBay and do a search for "Audi TT vagcom cable" and you'll find the interface cable for about $20. Buy that, and then you'll have the software to do it.

If you're not able or interested in it, you can go to the dealership and have them turn off the light - they'll charge you an hour's labor to do it (it takes less than four minutes, but they don't care - you're going to pay them between $60-100 to do it).

What you need to see is which bag is tripping the warning. On the A4s, it's usually the driver's side airbag (built into the seat). Moving the seat too far back or down tends to pull on the electrical connector for the airbag, separating it just enough to trip a warning light. When mine did this in my A4, I zip-tied the connector tightly to keep it from separating, then turned off the light, and have had no problems since. When you look under the seat for the connector, it's the yellow one (airbag wiring connectors are always yellow, as mandated by law). Just be careful not to pinch the wires when you tie it.
