Question about 1990 Audi 100

1 Answer

I have a 1990 Audi 100 (NON QUATTRO) and had the ignition switch fail. I have the shop manual and carefully followed the procedure for accessing the switch. I have the steering wheel off and the instrument cluster out. The manual states that this is the point at which I can access the switch. HAH!! There is a HEAVY metal dash support that is blocking any access to the switch from the top(through cluster opening). The bottom has a plastic U channel protecting the wiring harness that prevents access from the bottom. Any advice/tricks/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim

    Removing the channel seems to involve removing the entire dash. Even if the channel was removed, the access to the switch will not improve(SWITCH IS IN THE DASH, NOT ON THE COLUMN) Also, according to the shop manual, the screws that hold the switch onto the cylinder are accessed from the top(through cluster opening) The manual CLAIMS it is not necessary to remove the steering column.

Hi Jim-if you remove the plastic channel you can get to the bolts that holds the steering cullumn in place,remove that bolts and drop the cullumn,you should be able to remove the ignition.

I have a 1990 audi quattro V8, both low lights went out.. Marker lights and high beams both work


I would check the low beam fuses. Also maybe a bad dimmer switch. Check to see if you have power at the low beam headlight plug.

Sounds like a bad ignition switch. It has terminal 50 (starter activation) but no terminal 15 (ignition on) activation.
