Sounds like a brake pad warning light. There are 'sensors' in your front brake pads to let you know when they are low, if they are genuine audi pads then you usually have quite a bit left on the pads when it first warns you. Worth getting them checked out though and the rear as they're not monitored. This link should help.

Show symbols of warnings on 2003 audi


If you have access to a VAG-com cable you can probably find out more specific info.

Could you possibly take a picture of it and upload it? Also, have you read the manual? Go through to the instrument cluster section and look for the symbol. Could be some like this...

This icon is a Low Tire Pressure Warning light. This light comes on if your vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) detects a tire that is more than 25 percent underinflated. Driving on a low tire can be dangerous because it increases the risk of a tire blowout. A low tire can also cause your vehicle to brake unevenly, pull to one side, handle poorly and get reduced fuel mileage. If the TPMS Low Tire Warning light is on, check the air pressure in your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the recommended pressure.

The other choice sound as Traction Control light. It normally lights if the car detects slippage and engages the ESP. It will stay lit if you press the ESP button on the center stack of the dash. If it stay lit all the time regardless then it means something in the ESP system is broken, but I don't have the expertise to know what...maybe ABS sensor(s), but I honestly don't know.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day

Anything that looks more or less like this: (0)
has something to do with the brakes.
Broken lines both sides of the circle(instead of the brackets). Worn pads
If there is writing in the middle it can be
  • ! Brake system fault
  • ABS
  • P Parking brake
With a picture of a bulb in the circle that has an X over it. Faulty brake lights.

Audi 200 1991 getting a warning light


The brakes. It goes off because your brake fluid has gone below the minimum level, and sets the sensor off. Before you go adding brake fluid, what it REALLY means is that your brake pads are so worn down that the brake pistons in your calipers are extended all the way in order to make contact with the rotors. Therefore, the amount of fluid in your reservoir is low. Replace your brake pads, and see if you also need your rotors shaved/replaced because you let them go so far. Personal note: On older cars, the brake fluid is supposed to be replaced every 3 years. See if it needs a flush. If you can, drain out all the old DOT 3 brake fluid and replace it with synthetic DOT 3 or the newer DOT 4.
