Question about 2005 Audi A6
I too am experiencing intermittent tail light failures. Not sure if its coincidental however all problems started when i removed and replaced blown left license plate bulb. Now I get random left reverse light out, rear fog light out, left rear parking light out. I have replaced all bulbs tho it didnt seem needed then cleaned all contacts to ensure proper contact...what is going on here and a possible fix? It seems to be a fairly common issue and i hopeful for a fairly easy fix....
I can't solve this problem, but have had the entire left tail light unit on a 2005 A6 replaced under warranty 5 times in 3 years. Once it was out of warranty, the dealer kept replacing bulbs and charging me $30 each, but it never solved the problem, even for a day (clearly looking to duck their lifetime guarantee on work they did).

I have no Audi experience,but the symtoms indicate a loose ground connection[s] consult a shop manual or trace wires from lights to a connection screwed to the body panel or frame,check for looseness or corrosion.
