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


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

No dipped beam headlights on audi a4 1,9td 2003


Check up dipped beam headlights fuse inside fuse box. For Audi A4 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. If the dipped beam headlights fuse is OK, check up dipped beam headlights bulbs.

Left zenon low beam flickers and the left front bulb warning indicator is on


Sounds like the power ballast is failing - that's what takes the 12v signal from the car and amplifies it up to a level sufficient for driving the xenon bulb. Swap the ballasts between the headlights (they're easy to dismount) and see if the flicker goes to the other side (swap only the ballasts - leave the bulbs in their existing positions). If the flicker moves to the other side, the ballast is the problem. If it stays on the left side, the bulb needs replacement.

Search online for the bulbs - the dealer will kill you on pricing (the Audi dealership wants $200 each for my A4's xenon bulbs, but I can find them online for about $30 per pair (or less)). You'd want to order a D2S style bulb for an OEM BMW fitment, in 4300k color temperature.

Left dipped headlight


I had the sane issue with my headlight and they switched the headlight from right to left to see if it was the bulb or the control unit. It turned out it was the bulb and they replaced it.... luckily under waranty. I didn't see a date to your post but mine was done in June 2009 and my dealer was aware of the issue.

Audi A4 "left dipped headlight" problem


this most likely caused by a poor headlight ground, check around the headlight for any loose wiring that is screwed to the sheet metal of the car under the hood behind the headlight.

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.

Installing headlight bulb in a 2006 Audi A4 Avant


that's generally the only way to change them... you may have to remove the battery or other obstacles to get at them.... a quarter turn or so should free the bulb. careful not to touch the bulb with your fingers as that shortens the life of 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.
