Question about 2002 Audi A4

1 Answer

My Audi has just had an MOT and the mechanic told me I may have a problem with the Cambus as my rear driver's light is brighter than the passenger side. What is involved in fixing this with Audi and how much will it cost?

I would suspect this to be a very simple fix. It's probably a poor ground or loose socket. The plug-in for the light may be loose or corroded and need to be replaced or the ground wire for that light is not making a good connection. The ground wire needs to be taken off and cleaned up and put back on. It could also be the light socket itself that is making the poor connection and may need to be replaced.
While I'm not familiar with the cost of Audi repairs, this is a job that can easily be done by a DIYer so it shouldn't be overly expensive. Hope this helps.

My 1999 buick lesabre passenger side blinker doesn't work only the front little yellow indicator come on solid. The rear doesn't turn brighter or flash but the entire driver side does.


Check your ground on the light that's not working first. Use a test light, check for power. If it has power, then the ground is probably bad. The older light sockets corrode and go bad.

Why don't LED tail lights work correctly?


Check the grounds first. But it is probably the relay module . Located behind the passenger side rear tire. It has 4 plugs going to it. Also check those plugs for corrosion.

Rear fog lights not working on 2002 a6


First thing to check is the bulbs. The rear fog lights are the 2 bright red lights (a little brighter than the brake lights) next to the licence plate on the back of the car. They are turned on by pulling the light switch out 1 click when the headlights are on.

The rear right-side passenger window goes down, but not back up. I can pull it up and it stays within an inch of the top.


The problem you describe is caused by a failed/broken window operator mechanism. The fix requires the window operator mechanism to be replaced. You can search on Audizine.com for a DIY thread describing replacement of the window operator, or have an independent Audi repair shop or the Audi Dealer replace the window operator mechanism. The parts cost about $150.

Ive just bought my audi a4 S.E 1.8 petrol 1998.. with 164k...when i bought it the abs lightt was on and also the brake warning indicator light comes on and stays on flashing,and at the same time the abs...


as the mot only says the "brakes work"to a certain efficiency,(the tester does NOT check the depth/thickness of the pads),chances are your pads/discs are in need of replacement.the pads have sensors in them for wear depth, so when checking the pads,front AND rear the abs sensors can be cleaned,and if done by a seat/skoda/vw/audi dealer they can put it on the diagnostic computer to give you a definative answer (this is cheaper than guessing) I replace the pads myself but get the car "diagnosed"when any red light shows.

99 A4 tali light assmbly missing top bulb passenger side


That's the rear foglight socket. The rear foglight idea is European, and they ship the Audi over with a rear foglight as well, but it's only on the driver's side (that's the way rear fogs are done in Europe). That socket is fully powered though, and wired to the same dash switch as the driver's side rear fog. What you can do (what I did on my 99 A4) was to use a drill and **** out the rectangular opening in the rear taillight panel, and then put a bulb in that socket. Voila, instant dual rear fogs.

This is a good idea because in Europe, the police understand that a rear fog is only on one side. In the US, our police don't always know that, and you may get pulled over if you have that on - they may think you have a blown taillight bulb. Do the dual fog mod as described above - it'll save you the hassle and it looks better too.

Audi A4 coil pack


There are 4 coils, one for each cylinder. Audi tend to replace one at a time to save costs. So yes this is probably quite likely.

Audi a4 1.8t windows, interior light wing mirrors not working


Folks, Just found my problem ...... There's a flexible conduit (corrugated rubber sleeve) between the driver's door and the door arch which contains the wiring loom for the drivers door central locking/door speaker/electric windows/mirrors etc....discovered when I slipped off the sleeve that 4 cables in the wiring loom had broken due to repeated flexing when drivers door was opened/closed over the years (2001 Audi A4). Resoldered broken wires and insulated same....now working better than ever again ...ie dashboard back lighting seems brighter than it had been for some time? Also drivers door loudspeaker is back in action again (hadn't noticed that it had gone).
It's kinda difficult to reseat the rubber sleeving correctly after the repair job...will probably use some silicone sealant on the sleeve to ensure that there is no water ingress to wiring loom afterwards. I'm not too impressed with Audi design people after that, should have used cable that has a better flexibility rating (esp on drivers door!).

Paul.

Locked door


I've had a similar problem with the drivers door locking up twice, wouldn't open from the inside or with the key/remote. Audi needed to replace it I'm afraid thats the only option once it has ceased. Could try releasing the mechanism and cleaning it down but replacement was the only option for mine!
