Hi,

It sounds like you have shorted out your tail lamp fuse so just check the fuse's and replace any faulty one's.

What actually jumps?
The car or the dash board gauges?

Let me know how you get on.

The light is flashing on the top left of the 4 squares. Its 1996 Audi A4 1.8 auto. What does it mean


Is this you instrument cluster? vtraudt image
If so, top left would be coolant temperature warning light.

What is the coolant temp gauge reading?

I would suspect faulty coolant temp sensor.
Also check if your coolant reservoir sensor (plugged into the bottom of you coolant tank) is plugged in (I often forget to plug it back in; the retainer also easily breaks and the plug can slip out).

need to check the ignition control unit under the dash. its right behind the dash. if you have had a water leak it is the first part to go. when you turn the key you should hear it click. sends power to the dash.lights gauges etc.

Audi a4 throttle control unit


immobilizer not recognizing key. vehicle will start and cut out immediately. try unplugging instrument cluster and recconecting as they sometimes develope a bad connection due to connector pins being very fine. check connection between ignition barrel and dash cluster. immobilizer built into cluster. if engine control unit has been changed immobilizer won't recognise it, must be adapted using diagnostic reader. this is done by entering instruments [code 17] select adaption [code 10] and channel 00 [erase learned values] and confirm. keys may need to be adapted to immobilizer [only at dealer as key code is needed.

Audi A4 instrument cluster does not work


Your dash has what is known in the trade as a dry solder joint in the instrument cluster it will have to be repaired by people whom specialise in this work.
You could try BBA remanufacture as they do a lot of this type of work for us.

According to a buddy of mine who did it on a 99:

Pull up on the little trim piece behind the steering wheel. Underneath it are two phillips screws. Remove them and the instrument cluster will wiggle out. You'll have to disconnect the plugs on the back of the instrument cluster. They can be a little tricky, and even moreso to reinstall. You'll see how the bulbs come out after that.
