Question about 2005 Audi A3
I just wondered if you have had this repaired yet and what was causing it as my Audi A3 2005 model has exactly the same problem!!
In response to bs77bird - the two things are definatley related. When i am stationary and the bonnet light is on neither my front wipers or my windscreen wash work. when im moving, my wipers do work, but my windscreen wash still doesnt. When the light turns itself off occasionally, both the wipers and windscreen wash work when im stationary and moving.
Any help would be great as i dont want to get ripped off for something i could potentially fix myself!

Sounds like two different problems the bonnet light that flashes at you is most likely caused by a failed door latch. there is a small micro switch in the latches that will fail. The best way to check this is to roll all you windows down close your doors and lock them then open your doors from the inside latch if the alarm does not go off for one of the doors that would be the bad door latch. to turn off the alarm just hit the unlock button on your remote key fob. if all the doors set off your alarm then it would be the trunk latch that has failed. As far as the wipers go have you checked your fuses. also if the latch on your hood has gone bad the wipers will not work. try that hopefully that will point you in the right direction.
