Question about 2006 Audi A6

1 Answer

Left headlight on Audi A3 only works when it wants to. I've tried replacing the bulb, but it's still giving me problems.

The first time it went out, I replaced the bulb - that didn't help. Then, after about a month, the headlight started working again out of the blue. It's been about 3 months and now it doesn't work again. Any suggestions? I've also checked all the fuses.

If the vehicle is equipped with HID lighting, you could have a ballast problem to the light. If they are regular type headlights the connector to the bulb could be causing a problem with a ground or power supply

    I took a look at the wires (brown & white) that connect to the headlight & there was some insulation falling off - so I taped that part up but it still doesn't work. Do I have to remove the bumper to remove the headlight casing? If the insulation is falling off on the part of the wires that I can see, then it might be shorting out where I can't see it.... right?

Rear wiper has stopped working in audi a3 - where and how do i change the fuse? the washers have also stopped at the same time. would this be the same fuse?


Yes, is the same fuse nr.41 (15A) !
For Audi A3 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
The fuse nr.41, (the second fuse from right to left direction, on the second row from bottom to upper direction, on the fuse box), F41 (15A) = Rear screen wash & wipe system !!!
Replace blowed fuse with new one and problem will be solved quickly !
Please rate my response. Thanks!

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


Hi,I dont know if your Audi has the same problems as SAAB and VW but they suffer from what is called a dry joint on the circuit board inside the headlamp control relay,what happens is as the board heats up it causes expansion/contraction on the bad solder joint causing all sorts of component failures headlamps just being one of them,remove the relay and open it and on close inspection you will find the (dry joint/s) if your handy with a soldering iron a fraction of the price of some of these relays,you can re-melt the solder on the bad joints to cure the problem.

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.

Bulb replacment


The bulbs are changed from the rear. There might be a weather cover, once its removed you will see a ring or clip holding in the bulb , remove that to remove the bulb. Install in reverse order. And a little known fact most parts stores will install bulbs for free when you buy them.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


AUDI A4- 2005. There is a technical service bulletin for this exact problem. take it to the dealer when this issue has happened while driving. During a daytime drive when cold see if you cant get the light to fail while circling your dealer. As soon as you pull into the service drive do not turn the car off do not flip the switch. I am an Audi Technician for a dealer in Birmingham alabama. Personally this is not my favorite repair to perform; What audi states is that if the bulb flickers the bulb should be replaced; if one side fails the bulb should be swapped left to right if the fault continues with the bulb the bulb is at fault; if the bulb is swapped and the bulb fails again on the same side it is the module. NOW: I currently am working on a 05 A4 that both bulbs both modules have been replaced and Audi has no clue what to advise on a repair. THIS IS AN ISSUE if it has happened to you ask if there is a TSB for this issue or try to find it for yourself.
